It's Time, It's Time!!

It's here at last! Our 'open' time for new members!
Through the month of September, Etsyhookers is open to new members.
1. You must have an Etsy shop
2. You must be 18 or older.
3. Your shop must be at least 50% crochet (crochet-related) items, with a minimum of 7 crochet (crochet-related) items.
4. After approval, please be sure to tag your items with 'Etsyhookers team'--this tag applies ONLY to crochet/crochet related items. Please do not tag other crafts that contain no crochet with our team tag. We are trying to promote crochet, not painting, ceramics, sewing, etc.

*Please note, crochet related does not mean generic craft supplies that *could possibly* be used in crochet, but very rarely would be, like foam shapes, wood cut-outs, etc.
Examples of what is crochet-related: patterns, yarns, buttons, hooks...

To join, this is now a 2-3-step process since we've moved to Facebook!
First, apply to join our private group page. This is mandatory for members, since this is the only way I can contact everyone in the group with important special notices, announcements, etc.
Second, you *must* send me a message after you've applied to join through my Etsy shop, letting me know the name you applied to join under; your shop name will of course show in the conversation. Otherwise, I'll have no idea who you are and will be unable to
approve you.
Third, you are more than welcome to 'like' our FB business page. Once I've approved you for our private page, if I notice you've 'liked' our business page, I will make you an admin so you will be able to post pictures and links! If you do join our business page, please read FAQ's about photos before posting your listing pics.

Now is a great time to join! We've just started a new team challenge, and the deadline to enter is September 17th--rules are posted in our private group on FB.
Requests to join after September 30th will be deleted, as there is no waiting list for our next open date, which will be in early 2011.
