The Supermums Craft Fair

The Supermums Craft Fair is an online craft fair open all year round without the need for muddy fields or draughty halls

Sarah was recommended my services in January 2013 by word of mouth. She quickly set about detailing her brief for The Supermums Craft Fair: an “all year round craft fair” — allowing users to “rent” a stall on the site to sell their custom crafted produce — and online craft business directory.

Sarah’s passion in her idea was massive, but her budget was small so we had to come up with a solution that wasn’t going to require thousands and thousands of pounds to turn into reality. I suggested we utilise the power of WordPress and some budget template web designs provided by Shropshire-based matm to create the bespoke marketplace system that would form the basis of her website.

The site was integrated with PayPal allowing customers to buy from the site with payments going directly to the seller.

The designs for the site were started in February 2013 and the site launched in May 2013.

Sarah says…

I can’t recommend Jem enough. She was, and still is, a total pleasure to work with. Patient, diligent and best of all, she didn’t blind me with “technical talk” which in itself was a blessing in disguise. She was amazing whilst the site was being built and since the launch has always been on hand if I have needed her. If you are thinking of working with her, all I will say is… “DO IT!”

    We needed a quick refresh of our website, which is heavily used by prospective and existing parents, staff and pupils. We needed to make sure that our site was flexible to appeal to all our end users and showcased our school. Working with Jem, I was able to quickly turn my thoughts into a brief, and then into a final product.

    Jem clearly knows what she is doing with WordPress, and her work showcases her considerable knowledge and no nonsense approach. I intend to use her again, when required, and would recommend her to others looking for a developer who knows WordPress inside out.

    Jem’s knowledge and experience of the WordPress platform has proved invaluable to Source in the time that she has been working with us. Her ability to quickly and efficiently build a WordPress website from the visuals provided is second to none – as is her willingness to support our in-house development team with their WordPress projects. Source would have no hesitation in recommending Jem to anyone looking for an experienced WordPress developer for their project or agency.

    I was close to giving up after 8 years as a blogger. No matter what I did or who I got to help me, the hacker was one step ahead. That is until I enlisted the help of Jem Turner who managed to rid my blog of hacks and give me the confidence to blog again.

    Magiboards has been working with Jem for 9 years. She single handedly developed and continues to maintain the Magiboards’ website. Our brief to Jem was to design something which we can easily update ourselves. This has worked very well, leaving our budget to be spent on continually adding new areas to the website.

    An excellent web programmer, Jem understands what we are trying to achieve and always delivers. I would highly recommend Jem to any company wishing to use her services.

Why I love working with WordPress

I've been using WordPress since the heady days of version 1.0 and developing WordPress websites commercially since version 1.5 (released in 2005!)
