Rockford Etsy Team is a self-organized collection of handmade and vintage Etsy shop owners who live and run their businesses in and around Rockford, IL only (no supplies wholesalers or Chicago sellers). It is a support group to expand creative businesses by learning, sharing, and collaborating. We exist to benefit and support the local economy and encourage individuals to do the same in an artful and creative way. The mission of this team is to help Etsy shop owners and other community members succeed in their work and craft online and in Rockford, IL.



  1. Hi Bob,
    Great article, however I sell e-books rather than crafts. Will this concept be expanded to include online marketers who are not crafters? For example, I am a social media consultant, and market various affiliate products. Thanks, and I think this tool is a great idea for anyone. Mike Logan

  2. Thanks, Mike, I have asked Sherry Pritz at the Eigerlab to answer your question.
