Introducing our FEBRUARY Fellowship Society honored TEAM OF THE MONTH!
Australian Wandarrah is a moderated team open to both buyers and sellers living in Austrailia and New Zealand. A large team of over 1,600 members, treating each other with respect and compassion is the most important guideline of this spirited team.
The word Wandarrah is an aboriginal word meaning Meeting Place. Members support each other through thick and thin on this team. The team has also raised funds for the NSW Wildfires in 2013, and for the Street Swags in 2014. In 2014 they hosted regional meet-ups! Not a small task with the team covering 2 countries.
With such a large team, 1,675 members, you know they must have some amazing Leaders!
The Captain of the team is Cat. Her shop, Must Have Been The Cat, can be seen here:
She’s told us that she created the team because at that time there was nothing available for Australians on Etsy. She wanted it to be a supportive community for both buyers and sellers in Australia and is very proud and humbled by the amazing community that has evolved.
We provide a huge range of activities including chat, games, promo and educational resources. Everyone is kind and supportive …its like one very large functional family.
She has many Etsy shops and is always thinking up new ideas
When we asked her what her goals for the team in the future this is what she said
“In 5 years I hope that our team is still going strong and continuing to offer the variety of things we do today. I hope it will have helped our team members make their shops the success they want them to be and continues to support them and give them a sense of belonging.”
We love hearing that long term dedication she has to support this group!
That is part of being a captain that many people don’t understand, it’s a long term commitment for many of us and that takes a lot of time and volunteer hours.
Her second in command is Kelly.
Kelly runs the team’s challenge treasury and is charged with maintaining the team’s curated page. Kelly’s shop can be visited by clicking the link: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ColourscapeStudios
