This wonderful group of makers has meant so much to me as I find my wings as a creative business entrepreneur. I joined the group as a general member when I first arrived in Western Mass back in 2012. I was looking for community and I found it in spades!
This group is where I met my collaborating FriskyMama’s partner Jill Maldonado, the force behind Material Rebellion. It’s also the group that has hosted local Craft Fairs, lots of networking opportunities, and created a database of local fairs that members have attended, complete with contact information and reviews! There are resources galore.
There has been a bevy of business development workshops, information sharing sessions, and lots of social media support. Every single time I log onto Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram – I see a smiling friendly face from the group as we all stretch to promote ourselves and each other.
A hearty THANK YOU to all of you AWM’ers out there and a call to all local makers to join the tribe! You won’t regret becoming one with this powerful force.
