The episode will air Thursday, April 26, 2012 and is all about Etsy! All the guests and audience members were either Etsy sellers or employees of Etsy. We learned a little bit about the operations of Etsy, did some crafts with owners of successful Etsy shops, and even watched an all-Etsy fashion show. Plus we walked out of there with lots of presents from Martha - craft supplies, gift certificates to HP, and books.

Going to a show taping is a lot of waiting in lines and being quiet and clapping for two hours, but loving Martha and Etsy so much definitely made it a very exciting day for the audience. We all showed off our products to the cameras and Martha requested that we all have our individual photos taken so they can be put on The Martha Stewart Show website/blog. That is huge to all of us small business owners and we really appreciated Martha's support. It was obvious that she recognizes and appreciates that our group of people - craftspeople - are the ones who helped make her such a success.
