Judy with Judy’s Designs is an “unofficial” team leader.  She’s like our team cheerleader.  Always sharing great information and ideas.  Helps with mentoring team members, etc.

We received the Selling Event Fellowship 3rd quarter of 2014 (Aug.-Oct.)  We accomplished and held our first team selling event on Oct. 25th, 2014. 

We’ve learned so much and especially to Remember that a team is only as strong as it’s members.  Delegate tasks.  The more involvement you have the more people will participate.  It’s infectious.

In November we started playing games to increase views in our shop. 

The first one we love is a favorite game

Each team member can post one link to an item over the course of 1-3 days depending on participation level.  You must click on every single persons link and keep the browser window open for a minimum of 10 seconds.  Giving them a “view”. 

 We also play games where we post a pin from pinterest, a tweet link, facebook post, etc.  Click on link to open it, then like or share, repin, or retweet.  Then click to follow through to etsy also giving the item a view from that particulair social media site.

Many of our team members have a dream of building up to full-time businesses while for others its more of a hobby or extra source of income.  Right now my dream for the team is to build a strong local network of etsy shop owners that can support and learn from each other.  Possibly also in the future, it would be nice to have a Monthly Market to sell our arts and crafts locally.


 Favorite Quote

One from the RINGGOLD ETSY TEAM leadership to You

Keep moving forward even when team participation is down.  Things cycle and you may have many ups and downs, people come and go, but don’t give up.  It takes time to build a strong team with solid committed members.

Introducing Pattern Patter Team!


The Pattern Patter Team, founded on June 7, 2011, is a team specifically for sellers of vintage and newer sewing patterns.

 Currently we have 226 members, and 6 leaders. As captain, I rely on my leaders to support the team and me by taking charge of their area of expertise. Let me introduce them!


Susan from AdelebeeAnn is our social media maven. She takes care of the team’s social media accounts by posting on all of them daily.


Next, Emily from EmSewCrazy is responsible for team events. She posts the sign up threads, organizes the participants’ information, and tallies the results!


Amy from ViennasGrace is our resident Fashionista. Her knowledge of fashion terminology as well as her ability to help with dating an item is indispensable! She also is a regular contributor on the team blog with her series Sewing and the Cinema as well as other subjects.


Cloe of CloesCloset helps to manage the team page keeping it current and fresh. She also helps with tags and titles, and SEO questions from members.


Our newest leader is Barbara of FloraDoraPresents. Barbara has taken over Member Management. She reviews applications to join the team, sends new members information, and will soon be reviewing current members to make sure they are complying with requirements.

etfspatternpatter7marybethlogoThen there is me! Mary-Beth

Team Captain


 I write blog articles, manage the advertising for the team, write the newsletter every month, and do whatever else I can to make my team members successful.

etfspatternpatterimg2012 Team Spirit Award Winner!
2013 Fellowship Award Winner!
2014 Fellowship Award Winner! (x2)

Pattern Patter Team has been fortunate enough to receive three Fellowship awards, one in 2013, and two in 2014.  I have had a great experience in being part of the fellowship program.  I have learned so much about team management and about online communities. My favorite was the group that Kim led in 2014.  I have become more self-confident and organized!

The one thing I would like to share with other sellers leaders and captains is that you can’t do everything. You need a good support team. Search out possible leaders to help make your team the very best that it can be! People like to be asked to help.

Our team deals in old, fragile, paper. Not always an easy job!

Deadhead Art Alliance – Support


We believe in being the change we want to see in the world, and as the eyes of the world, we communicate our needs and respectfully strive to support each other not only through Etsy, but in our personal lives, via social media, and beyond into real life.  We’ve crafted a network that extends to the ends of the universe and beyond and we are truly everywhere.

Grateful Dead Steal Your Face

We started in 2012 and within 1 month had already grown to 150 members, and now are close to 900 only a short 2 1/2 years later., We’ve also grown by our social media groups 10 fold, now boasting over 2500 in our FB group and a generous amount of supporters and followers on our Facebook Fan Page.  Our blog is a hub for learning about our members and a great place for our community to look to for inspiration and real life stories of how our members have become artists, how they overcome their hardships, and showings of pride and the lovely families they are able to support.  All this possible by connecting and sharing our bonds with one another.



Many Many years ago there was a great man named Jerry Garcia, and a band of forward thinking musically and socially inspired beings called the Grateful Dead.  This group through it’s eclectic art, extensive touring, and can do attitude gained the love and respect of billions of us who loyally follow them from state to state, from country to country, and beyond.  We’ve learned acceptance, we’ve learned that love can lead the way, and best of all, that being together makes us happy.

Life goes much further than what you see in the stores of Etsy Sellers, there is a heart and a soul in there, a person, a dream, a past, and a need to survive.  We are here to be part of it all.
