Etsy Fellowship Team Feature- TAGT Team

TAGT team began in 2010, when the Etsy Treasury system was alive and well. Our mission was to bring much-needed exposure to shops that otherwise would never be seen on what was once, Etsy’s Front Page. The same shops were always being featured over and over on the Front Page, and we decided to use the Treasury to help the rest of Etsians have a chance at being discovered.

a4a511aa201ea9653c35c20fac74695c
We work hard to make our treasuries stand out in the crowd, by choosing well photographed items, interesting and entertaining titles and themes, and great color combinations.
Not only do we make a lot of treasuries, but we teach our members how to improve their own shops, clean up their photos and staging of items, SEO, tagging, prices, etc. We are really like a family. Most of our members have been on the team at least 4 years.
I ,Leanna am the Team Captain, and my leaders both live in my same state. We broke off from another team, because we knew the treasury was going to be better for exposure, and the other team didn’t share our views. My sister is one of the other leaders, and owner of AntlerPantryk, and SewcialGraces. Kathy, a good friend is the remaining leader, and owner of Readesign, TravelingGypsies, WithAllMyArt, and DixieVintageShoppe. These ladies are a great help to me!
We would love to see the Treasury have more prominence on Etsy again, because it is really hard to be seen here now, but even if that doesn’t happen, TAGT Team will continue to help other Etsians get a little of the limelight!
We have a new board on Pinterest, which also helps Etsy shops get some exposure. It is here: www.pinterest.com/tagtteam/gift-guides/

ETSY TEAMS FELLOWSHIP SOCIETY TEAM OF THE MONTH – OCTOBER – THE WOOD CARVERS OF ETSY

iga_170x100.18192_h659

Introducing The Wood Carvers of Etsy Team!

The Wood Carvers of Etsy Team – October Team of the Month

From it’s very beginning the purpose of Wood Carvers of Etsy was and still is to promote, enlighten, and represent the arts involving wood carving and wood sculpture. The team is a place where wood carvers from all across the globe can come together to promote their wood carved items, share ideas and tips.

The wood carver of Etsy is a team numbering in membership of 166 wood carvers, representing various types of carving from the very simplest, to some of the most complex styles of carving. Our goal is not to be one of the largest teams on Etsy, but to be one of the successful teams on Etsy.

The team works diligently on a weekly, if not daily basis to promote the shops and items from within the team. One of the most amazing things about wood carvings is that each one is unique. You may find a Santa in almost every shop of the team, but not one will be exactly the same and that is because the individual skill and personality of the wood carver comes out in each individual Carving. No two carvings will ever be the same unless they are mass-produced by a machine (which is one of the few rules we have regarding membership) it is often the wood that dictates the outcome of the finished product. The Wood Carvers of Etsy Team is all about promoting the craft of woodcarving, not mass production marketing.

iga_170x100.13448

Introducing the Integrity of Vintage Etsy Team!

Integrity of Vintage: Team of the Month September

 

Sellers of vintage on this team  have wonderfully picked items in their stores.  When you are looking for items of the best integrity, or items of high ​quality and ​lasting ​value, or ​showing the ​best characteristics ​typical of the ​person who ​created it, this team strives to bring it to you to the best of their ability.  Vintage can just be something old, or much like a ​wine of high quality that was made in a ​particular ​year, and that can be ​kept for several ​years in ​order to ​improve it.

The teams mission is that the team members take great pride in offering vintage and antique items, which (per Etsy guidelines) must be a minimum of 20 years old.

The team strives to Promote and support the team shops via social medias and on Etsy and create an open and friendly atmosphere where knowledge of vintage, antiques and maintaining a successful Etsy shop can be shared

ETSY TEAMS FELLOWSHIP SOCIETY TEAM OF THE MONTH – MAY – ETSY MUD TEAM

etfsmudteammay

Introducing the Etsy Mud Team  (this is their short name) – officially they are Etsy Mud Team for makers of handmade pottery, clay sculpture, and other ceramic arts  Team URL is: www.etsy.com/teams/6382/etsy-mud-team-for-makers-of-handmade

etsymudteamlogo

This team takes working with clay to a whole new level.  I’m going to do some real sharing of their creations because I am in such awe of what their imaginations have come up with in this medium.

Cups and Mugs, Bowls, Jewelry, Sculpture, Serving Trays and Kitchen Items, Wedding Decor, Home Decor, Supplies, Pet, Garden Items and More…

etsymudteam3

//

Ceramics is one of the most ancient industries on the planet. Once humans discovered that clay could be dug up and formed into objects by first mixing with water and then firing, the industry was born.  Animal and human figurines were made from clay and other materials, then fired in kilns partially dug into the ground.  In later years tiles were manufactured, functional pottery vessels for storing water and food around 9000 or 10,000 BC and thought at that time to be responsible for the creation of glass, when overheating of kilns produced a colored glaze on the pottery.  Clay has done so much for humanity and art it is sure a medium to be respected and adored.

Follow JD Wolfe’s board Etsy Mud Team on Pinterest.

Etsy Mud Team was Founded Jun 18 2007 and is a hub for well over 1400 crafting individuals and is a Etsy Fellowship winning team.

JD Wolfe is the wonderful captain of the team and Terry Parker is the team representative who we at the Etsy Teams Fellowship Society are proud to work closely with to network and come together for multi-team events.   When the founder of the team stepped down these women are 2 of the 3 individuals that stepped forward to take over the team in 2007 .

 

Terry – “Our team is pretty successful in maintaining a core group of active members. The active participants change over time but so far others have stepped forward to take their place. I would hope we are as active as a group 3-5 years from now and that we figure out more ways to help each other promote our businesses.”

Let’s meet the Leadership!

 

JD Wolfe (Captain)

JDWolfePottery

I love JD’s profile

Three things you may not know about me: 1. My husband is a childhood friend. We first met when we were 15 and reconnected and married in our thirties.  He is a classically trained chef, and a big part of my life is helping him with his BBQ sauce business (Howling Wolf BBQ). http://etsy.com/shop/howlingwolfsauces 2. I used to live in a 100 year old concrete farm silo, converted into a 3 story cabin, with no running water. Living a pared down simple life really adds perspective to everything. 3. I have a passion for mid century vintage and Scandinavian design. I get a huge thrill from the hunt for forgotten treasures. I remember going to farm auctions with my Dad as a kid, and that really was the spark that started it for me. I now sell some of my finds in my vintage shop http://FaithandFranny.etsy.com ——————————————————————————————- More info about my work; I’ve been a potter for almost 20 years now, and knew the first time I tried it, that it is what I wanted to do with my life. I worked as a production potter for a large company for a year after college, and then opened my own studio/gallery near Madison, WI and operated that for almost 15 years until I started my family. I now sell my work primarily online and love sharing my work with everyone around the world. http://instagram.com/jdwolfepottery http://pinterest.com/jdwolfepottery http://jdwolfepottery.blogspot.com http://facebook.com/jdwolfepottery http://twitter.com/jdwolfepottery il_170x135.289163328 https://www.etsy.com/listing/86913072/made-to-order-nesting-cloud-plates-white?ref=shop_home_active_11   etsymudteamjd

I took my first pottery class at a Community College late 1996. I’ve attended a raku pottery workshop with artist Jim Romberg in Oregon and in 2010 a workshop with Jeff Oestreich at the Archie Bray Foundation. I continue to play learn and experiment in clay and glaze mixing. etsymudteamleader2

I love the organization of this team, from their website, to their FB page and all of their social media you sing with the love of clay I loved visiting your Facebook page the first post was so beautiful…   it’s  a photo of a child covered in clay working on a pottery wheel with a quote from Pablo Picasso. “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” -Pablo Picasso  

We look forward to meeting you!
