Making a Ring by Christina

The Abingdon members of the Oxford Etsy Team came along to the Abingdon Silver Groups open evening where they each learnt to make a silver ring. They all managed to produce some really impressive pieces.

Mini Abingdon Meet Up by Christina

We have started to encourage members to connect with other Oxford Esty Team members in their towns and villages. This is Helen, Christina & Shany who make up 3 of the 6 Oxford Etsy members from Abingdon. Until Oxford Etsy was set up they had no idea anyone else near them had their own Etsy shop. Now they have regular meets, teaching each other their different crafts. We are gradually creating a craft community!

Our first meet up by Christina

This was actually our second meet up but we forgot to take any photos at our first meet up. We reserved a table at All Bar One in Oxford. We had about 14 Oxford Etsy Team members attend, at at various stages in their Etsy shop journey. We got to know each other, found out what everyone's skills were and we discussed tips on running our shops. We look forward to the next one! Come and join us if you are an you are based in Oxfordshier and have an Etsy shop (or are looking to set one up)
