Today’s customer spotlight shines on the fine folks over at Selvedge House, which is based in Brisbane, Australia. Selvedge House, as their website explains, provides a collection of hand crafted designer textiles, patterns and craft kits.
Recently, Danielle from Selvedge House sent us an email to tell us know how “brilliant” our button machine work and “how much fun” they have using it well set up at a weekend market stall. And in addition to fun, Danielle informs us that during that one weekend craft fair they pretty much made the cost of the machine back.
Here is a portion of Danielle’s email to us and some pictures from their weekend:
Just wanted to drop you a line and say how brilliant our machine is and how much fun we had with it at our weekend market stall (we think we pretty much made the cost back!).
Rather than make the mirrors/badges ourselves we wanted it to be an interactive part of our stall to get a bit of excitement and crowding happening (which worked well, once you started showing one person, a crowd gathered).
We used mainly Australian hand screen printed organic cotton/linen blend fabrics which looked awesome and had no problems with using.
Danielle is far from the first person who emailed to let us know that they have used ABM products to have fun and make money at craft fairs. View our complete list of button machines and button supplies to see what you can take to the next craft fair in your area.
Also, use the following link if you are interested in making fabric mirrors like the ones described in Danielle’s email and that you can see in the pictures.
