A Happy New Year and a Happy New Felt!

What a year it’s been! In 2010 we attended the fabulous Craft 2.0, Fruit Bowl Craft Jam, A Craft Affair and A Craft Christmas Market, survived a mag 7.1 earthquake and reached 13,000 users. Visits per day trebled, Felt’s growth rate increased by 150% and we saw thousands of exciting new handmade products listed by awesome makers from all over the country. Felt was also a finalist for Best Trading Site in the Net Guide Web Awards.

While all this was going on we’ve been hard at work in the background, coming up with new ways to improve the site. I’m excited to announce that we’re just about ready to reveal the fruits of our labour.

In 2011 you’ll see some changes on Felt. Specifically, we’re focusing on how we can make it easier for you to use the site, whether you’re a seller, a buyer or simply a browser. Starting with a wee bit of a makeover, we’ll be improving some existing features, introducing a few cool new bits and paving the way for exciting new features further down the track.

Your feedback and support in getting to this point has been invaluable and I’m really looking forward to sharing these improvements with you. The new year is going to be an exciting one – watch this space!
