Happy New Year

Bookbinding Etsy Street Team Year in Reivew!

It has been only a few months, but our little team has accomplished great things already. Here is a quick overview of 2007.
  • Late in the summer of 2007, the Bookbinding Etsy Street Team was formed unofficially and started blogging.
  • B.E.S.T. achieved official street team status in October and there was even a visit to the Etsy labs that month.
  • Also in October, we picked team colours and designed a logo.
  • We have now published three bookbinding-related tutorials on our blog as well as one full length member interview.
  • By early November, the B.E.S.T. Etsy shop was established and there have been four sales since then.
  • We successfully completed our first group Book Swap, with eight participants.
  • In December there was a team sale with 25 shops participating.
  • B.E.S.T. now has a Yahoo group, a Flickr group, and has been featured on Notebookism.com
  • We have published several informative resources on our blog about buying bookbinding supplies, displaying books at craft sales, some bookbinding history, etc.
  • There were 77 registered team members as of Dec 31, 2007.
  • There have been 38 fabulous B.E.S.T. Treasuries on Etsy!
Great work folks. Just imagine the possibilities for 2008!
