Name change @ SHA: Now Shop Contemporary Handmade

Shop Contemporary Handmade Basic Square finalBefore we grow any further (nearly 1000 fans in just over 2 weeks – wow and thanks) we have made the decision to change our name to:
Shop Contemporary Handmade.

This entails a few key changes, including a change to our Blogger and Facebook page addresses. Whilst Blogger thankfully allows us to make the name change without affecting our subscribers, sadly Facebook requires us to create a new page and start from scratch.

Won’t you join us?

{New Facebook page}

To help us make this necessary change, and to bring as many people across to our new page as we can, we are having a competition!

We need lots of Aussie handmade businesses to spread the word that Shop Handmade Australia is now Shop Contemporary Handmade and encourage people to follow along.

You could win blog sponsorship on the SCH blog for the remainder of May 2011!
There are 2 sponsorship places to be won.

Details on what blog sponsorship provides can be found HERE.

And if you’re not a crafty page owner but a shopper of handmade, we’d really love you to join us on the new page; and encourage your friends and family to join in too. After all, this page is for you! We will continue to bring you quality, relevant information about handmade businesses in Australia, including details of competitions, sales, discounts and more.

To Enter
Add a comment at the bottom of this blog post, advising how you have spread the word, along with your craft business name and a way I can contact you (link to your Facebook page or website, or an email address).

Good luck and thanks again! We couldn’t do it without you!

Entries open NOW and close at 8pm Saturday 7 May 2011.
Open to Australian craft/creative/related pages only.
