Handmade Artists Forum

One feature of the group of sections to Handmade Artists is the forum.  Buyers and sellers can post in the forum asking questions, answering questions, displaying their works and giving opinions.  One of the very unique features in the forum is that everyone can actively interact with the site owners (Andrew and Kimberly) and with the Web Guru (Josie).  This is done with posts to the forum topics and in the "Chat" section.  Every Thursday evening (8:30 Eastern US time) anyone involved with Handmade Artists can participate in an interactive chat.  Josie attends, she is in England, so it is like 1:30 AM, but she is there with bells on.  This makes us very unique, everyone can have personal input into the design and operation of the shops.

Another feature of the forum is a provision for sending personal messages between members.  This is outside of the message system in the shops, where customers can send messages to the artist.  Forum also features a list of members, and a search function.

The forum is a place to see new items posted, interact with other members and just plain have fun posting and reading.  Anyone coming into the forum will see that the members of Handmade Artists are a great community.  We help each other.
