Camp Yarnsie Vendor Private Facebook Group
Vendors who have paid the virtual booth fee for the upcoming event will be invited to join. The Camp Yarnsie Vendor Facebook Group is a private group. This is a fabulous resource to meet and talk with fellow vendors. Ask questions and get suggestions. Need inspiration? Checkout all of our previous vendor videos (and outtakes too). This is a safe and supportive location to try live streaming (where no one can see you but group members) and practice what you are going to say, etc.
How do I get an invite to this group? Invitations to this group are by private invitation only. Group members are limited to the current vendors preparing for the upcoming festival. After every festival, the previous group members are removed and the upcoming/new vendors are invited to join. Why? Its not about the quantity or number of group members that matters – what matters is the connection those group members establish through a similarly shared interest which encourages engagement and growth among the members. Which is more helpful 100 “likes” or a handful of voices offering supportive feedback?
It is easy to focus on the main event, the final outcome – but what was it like behind the scenes? This gives you a true vendor to vendor perspective unlike any other vendor group. What happens (and has happened) in the private vendor group – stays in the private vendor group. Only those who have become Camp Yarnsie vendors know what it is like on the inside.
Creating a Virtual Presentation
Take a look at our Vendor Camp Course, which is available for purchase. This is an excellent option for those who are relatively new to creating and presenting virtually. Additionally, this is a great resource for seasoned virtual vendors to fine tune their tech, software, and formats.
The Vendor Camp Course breaks down all of that technical information into bite sized mini videos, which walk you through – step-by-step – how to setup the tech parts (your existing camera, audio, etc), and how to use your tech and available software to create an outstanding virtual presentation. Go from zero to hero and your own pace. This curriculum was originally developed with fiber artist vendors in mind, and has been provided to Camp Yarnsie vendors since June of 2020.
