Our team of the month of April is The Ladies and Gents Club. They chose this name to attract shops from the entire Etsy Community and be a place where both men and women can feel at home learning, promoting and socializing.    Our team was born on April 25, 2014 and is 184 members strong and growing.

current members list:


About this team:
LGC boasts that they are here to help each other to succeed. The easiest way to be a team member and learn about Etsy is to hit the floor running and jump right in! We were all new to Etsy at one time – having someone or a team to show you the ropes is a great advantage. If you want to meet people, make new friends – friends that will help you succeed – then this is the place where you can be all you want to be!

The leadership team:


Cindyanne – Captain
MoreFriendsAndCo MrOzNaps



Stacey – Co-Captain / Leader



Liz – Leader
LittleBlueBirdSays LittleBlueBirdBakes



Vicky – Leader



Deb – Leader



Sue – Leader


Cindyanne is the Team Captain and not only runs LGC but she is teacher, mentor, and friend. She always makes time to welcome the new team members or to help out anyone with their shop. Cindyanne trains all of the leaders.    If she does not know the answer to a question you can be sure she will find it for you.



Stacey helps where ever she is needed. She sends emails, invitations, runs BNR and BNS boards and creates promotion threads and treasuries. Stacey is also the Administrator of the LGC Team page for the Etsy Fellowship Society keeping the team members’ items posted and looking awesome! She posts items and treasuries on the Ladies and Gents Club Pinterest pages.


Liz is our resident DJ on the weekly Supper Club BNR. Liz has music in her soul and is the perfect hostess of the “Name That Tune” game bringing shops together for a few hours of fun and music trivia. She hosts the Shop of the Week – always looking for a shop that needs a little extra Etsy love. Liz is the LGC Facebook



Administrator is responsible for bringing in new members and posts items from team members’ shops daily. She also coordinates the Sweet 16 Treasury Promo checking to be sure shops that sign up follow through with their commitment and follow the rules.

Deb is the Membership Coordinator and is responsible for sending welcome letters to all new members. She does a wonderful job answering questions and guiding newbies in the right direction. Deb is known as the Treasury Diva! She loves to promote both old and new team members and follows up with featured shops to invite them into the Team.



Vicky is the Administrator of the LGC Team Page. Our team page is always up to date as new items are added to shops. She promotes the LGC Team on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. Vicky is responsible for bringing daily chats to the team – a place where everyone can talk about what is going on in their lives in general, not just Etsy.



Sue is the team resident Coupon Clipper. She checks and adds coupons to the BNR/BNS boards, helps send invitations and is a great social chatter on the boards.



All leaders of the Ladies and Gents Club are cross-trained to be able to step up at any given time to host an event, start a discussion thread or solve problems. The leaders understand that if you put in the work, it will happen. Remember to keep things in perspective – if it won’t be important in a month or a year do not to let it get to you. LGC leadership holds a weekly Skype conference to discuss hot topics and plan upcoming events.

One of the main events the Ladies and Gents Club is sponsoring this year is a BRIDAL EXPO in June. This will allow the team to showcase our products specifically for Etsy customers searching for wedding and bridal items. Since June is the most popular time of the year for weddings and bridal showers we want a central location to meet those demands.  Be sure to watch for more information as the time draws near.

The Ladies and Gents Club is a 6 time winner of the Fellowship Award.    Cindyanne received the award in Q3, Q4 2014 and Q1 2015. Stacey received the award in Q3 and Q4 2014. Liz received the award in Q4 2014. Cindyanne, Stacey, Vicky, Deb and Sue are currently awaiting Q2 enrollment for 2015. Cindyanne has brought many ideas to the team from the Fellowship. She shares what she has learned on our discussion page and is always updating current topics. As a direct result of sharing what the leaders have learned through the Fellowship, LGC has active pages on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest and has a strong presence in Etsyverse and the Fellowship Teams Page. Many of our discussion threads stem from conversations and blogs on the Captains Quarters Team – Shop Critiques and Tags to name a few.

LGC has promotional threads on the Team discussions page.

A few of the popular games are the ABC GAME where you post an item from your shop that corresponds with the letters of the alphabet. The FOLLOW THE LEADER GAME is a fun one where you post something from your shop that matches the color of the item before you.    A few other popular threads are Post 2 Fave 5 and the Bragging Board that features team members that got caught doing something fantastic like being featured on the Etsy Trending Pages, in a blog or magazine article. LGC strongly believes in acknowledging every achievement for its team members. A popular treasury promo is FRIENDS R US where 8 current members’ shops and 8 potential members are featured. This is a great promo activity to let the community know what LGC is all about and give them a taste of the hospitality the Ladies and Gents Club has to offer. LGC has a mandatory one treasury per month, per member rule.

LGC is the known for the NAME THAT TUNE GAME.    The game is played during the weekly BNR.   Liz sends out a few lyrics from a song and waits for someone in the gallery to give the correct answer. One point is awarded for the correct title of the song and one point is awarded for the correct artist. In the event there is more than one artist famous for the particular song it is at the discretion of the Maestro to decide on the winner. No purchase is necessary to participate in the game and it is ok to Google your response. At the end of the night all winners are entered into a drawing by random.org for a free spot on a future BNR board.


One of the Team’s favorite blitz promos is the HEART ATTACK!  LGC has a HEART ATTACK once a month to promote the shops’ new items and brings the team together for 12 hours of heart-ing, fun and fellowship. The ultimate result of the HEART ATTACK is the CPR that comes afterward – CUSTOMER PURCHASE REQUESTS! You must be a member of the team to participate in the HEART ATTACK. Come join the fun and set your stats on fire!


The LGC Team Slogan is:
“When you succeed, we succeed and when we succeed, you succeed!


The dream for the Ladies and Gents Club is to increase their membership and to help each other succeed, to be part of the new and exciting changes at Etsy and continue to grow at a steady pace with active members. LGC will remain a team that helps members both new and established, find the dream they were hoping for when they opened their Etsy shop.

Advice to other team Captains:
Be sure to acknowledge everyone for what they do, there is no deed or accomplishment too small for recognition.

Thank you for all you do!

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.

Handmade Jewlery


 Bath and Body

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.

(A Knowledge Sharing and Networking Community)


We, the captains and leaders of the ETSY TEAMS FELLOWSHIP SOCIETY, have come together to provide our service to one another and to the Etsy community.  To provide each other, our members and all Etsy stores a Knowledge,  Education and Network Sharing  Community.  Together 33 original teams who have won the ETSY FELLOWSHIP AWARD have chosen to become an advanced mass promotion and co-networking group of artists and sellers on Etsy.  By finding and meeting one another in the Etsy Fellowship Program we started to realize one grand thing we had in common, that we were the the guides at the front of a massive adventure in promotional and marketing for large groups of people and the knowledge and information we held as the higher ups, could not only help our members stores, but also one another in achieving our goals and our team’s goals.     We are Knowledge and Experience based as a group, we will strive to teach and share what we have learned on our own, and by choice have  decided to rally together to really be a tight knit  Etsy community of hard working etsians who are mostly home and small business based sellers who want to change the world we live in one craft, sale, or art share at a time.  As a group we believe in sustainability, in family values, and in the right for all people to be able to be treated with kindness  and equality as sellers on the internet.

The Participating members are all amazing people and if you’ve been invited here your work on your teams has been acknowledged and is respected… and we congratulate you! Everyone raise your right hand.. place it on your left shoulder and pat three times


I would like to Introduce you to your FIRST LEADERS of the FABULOUS SOCIETY WE HAVE CREATED.



First on the Roster is Mary Beth from retromonkeys (PatternPatter)

Welcome Mary Beth!

She will be the Head of our Newsletter Department

(this is going to be a amazing resource where we will not only provide educational how to team posts, but we will also be reposting from the blogs you already do and networking in a family way.) She will be your editor who will decide with me what will be re-posted

Next we have Kim of Vintage Paige or – DR. Kim (EcoChic)

… ok.. well maybe she’s not a medical professional, or a real PHD, but she’s been on Etsy quite a good while and with her knowledge and experience will be the Head of our Teams Education Department

(I found by being a fellow that we all have done some dynamic work with our teams, and that many people can benefit from our personal experience.. We will make how to’s for how we do all of our social media, about campaigns to assist sellers, step by steps to learn different ways to promote, help and get your members more sales… these will all be posted here in our group and the most important of them will be used in our blog to be available for all to learn from!)

*All our fellowship team members will be part of this department as crucial contributors, any information they have to share is always welcome)

Kim Grassie Konen

Our Etsy Administration leader who will be assisting with questions team events and adding events to our team calendar.  She will be inviting all of the new members from the Fellowships from here on out as a reward as they complete their fellowship quarters.  A wonderful asset to this team and ETSY!

Also on our Roster of Greatness is

Norma from TrueColorsBotique  (Young at Heart)

who will be always available for ANY QUESTIONS NEEDS Help GUIDANCE, CHAT, and to help guide and research throughout our adventures. I’m calling her our DEN MOTHER.. like a serority or pack of wolves..lol this is our GO-TO woman for ANSWERS! There are no dumb questions here! Anything you want to know.. just ask… we are an open forward thinking visionary group of people and are open to help with all of your needs.

Last but not least me, Jen Liput – team captain 🙂

(deadhead art alliance) and (ETSY TEAMS FELLOWSHIP SOCIETY)

Consider this like team like a sailing sea ship and I’m the captain- I will be available at all times to assist and guide the captains and leaders of the team.

I personally will be starting to work on our -ETSY TEAMS FELLOWSHIP SOCIETY TEAM MONTHLY CALENDAR  – TEAM EVENTS ORGANIZATION and on EDUCATION and NETWORKING – I plan so arrange a web page where all of our teams will be represented with information about who we are, what we’re about, and provide a go to place for all of the links to our team’s services… and to see what you should be teaching your team or giving them a heads up on the current events and marketing dates

We will be introducing you to team games for promotional in team fun, we will also be providing Fellowship Games… which will allow us to take what we do on our teams, we’ll bring the links here, network, share and show the best of what Etsy and Etsy Teams have to offer. Etsy Teams in general has separated the zillions of interests of Etsians all over the world, and we will bring them back together in a unity of support.

Through this team We will accept the members from future fellowship programs, who will be invited by Etsy Administration when they win new fellowships in the future to learn and teach just as we do… sharing information is a crucial part of learning, growing, and success.

– If you are a visionary who would like to help run this team like these women and men have, apply for the ETSY TEAMS FELLOWSHIP.

We are going to be the guiding light to the Etsy teams who have won fellowships to assist in building the knowledge and support systems needed to run TEAMS on Etsy.  As teams are a reflection of the Captains style of how they run their society and Interests and Passions of thousands of People, there is no one right way to run a team, BUT, we stand to support one another by sharing of our knowledge, information and techniques to exist as well as Providing an all in one place where we can refer to MONTHLY for a calendar of events to share with our teams to keep us up to date, and in the loop of crucial information that needs to be shared with our teams members and all people who love Etsy.

There are so many great happenings that get missed just because we don’t find out about them or we find out too late.   We hope to bridge that gap.

We would like to thank our venue, Etsy.com and our Etsy administration Representative Kim Konen who has been here for us over the years give us the tools and pride to be the guides support system and friends we have become.

Not only is a team a place to meet like minded people and other Etsy buyers and sellers, but it’s a community we feel that should be built on mutual respect, with the goal to help one another succeed.



A group of people with a full set of complementary skills required to complete a task, job, or project.

Team members (1) operate with a high degree of interdependence, (2) share authority and responsibility for self-management, (3) are accountable for the collective performance, and (4) work toward a common goal and shared rewards(s). A team becomes more than just a collection of people when a strong sense of mutual commitment creates synergy, thus generating performance greater than the sum of the performance of its individual members.
