Yes, only one month to go until the Big Craft Event at the Lincolnshire Showground (12th November 2017 if you'd like to come along) where I am taking my felt work. I am almost there but just have a few things to finish off and sort out.
I know that choosing a name for a hobby, which will work on the internet, as well as any products which you hope to sell, is a difficult process. I settled on 'Feltabulous' in 2009, for this blog and any other website/packaging etc. I have discovered that other people have also chosen this name, in America and Australia. This is not too much of a problem as they are in other countries and their work is not like mine.
However, earlier in the year, I discovered that there is someone not too far away from me, also in Lincolnshire, who is using the name, albeit with a variety of upper and lower case fonts and mainly producing needle felted work. I wouldn't mind so much if it was in the UK, but away from Lincolnshire. I got in touch and asked if we could find a way to distinguish our names, so that our respective customers would not be confused. Unfortunately, I have had no response. I have added 'Lincoln' to my packaging in the hope that this will make my work synonymous with me.
I will be busy working away for the next month, finishing off projects and getting it all ready...
