Tell us about yourself. Who you are, where you live and a little bit about you and what you do in your spare time.

Hi, my name is Stacy and I live in North Essex. I was born in Taiwan but move to the UK quite a few years ago to study textile design. I stayed ever since and moved around a bit before settling in South of Cambridge. I am married but have no children yet. I only have to look after my cat at the moment. Hes quite the needy one and follows me everywhere, so it sometimes turns into a full-time job.

What do you make?

I make fashion accessories, including bags, purses & wristlets.

How & when did you get started designing & making?

Although design has been part of my life for some time now through my studies, Ive only started to design and make items for sale about a year ago.

What venues / websites do you sell from?

I like to attend the craft fairs organised by Handm@de Fairs. But my main outlets are online stores Etsy.com, Folksy.com and Dawanda.com. My designs are also stocked by a few retailers in the US and UK.

What / who inspires your work?

Anything and everything. But I always try to see the practical side of things.

What are your plans for Yunisacs for the next 12 months?

My plan is to continue to run yunisacs as I do now, and take things as they come. I do intend however to be more open to wholesale, something that I have passed on up until now for fear of losing the possibility of changing materials as often as I like.

What marketing tips do you have for other artists, designers, crafters & makers?

I don't feel that I am truly in a position to give others advice, but I would say that an important aspect of selling your craft is selling yourself through any mean available, such as blog, advertisement, paid for feature, etc.
