Recently I have been busy organizing a new group, along with my friend Katie Clayton, for artists and craft people in the Maplewood South Orange area of New Jersey. The group goes by the name of SOMA Artisan’s Group, our purpose is to bring like minded people together and to help our small businesses grow. So far we have organized two small craft shows and are working on an Etsy team. Our first meeting on September 10th was a big success with 22 people coming to our first meeting. More details on our blog and on The Maplewood Patch.
