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!”

    Jem has been unflinchingly helpful with every stage of the development of the Albion site, and has helped us keep it up to date and functioning effectively, solving problems as they have arisen. I am a techno-phobe, but Jem has been unfailingly supportive, helpful, always friendly and efficient. Also her rates seem really good value, but don’t tell her I said so.

    We wanted to update our old website, Jem came highly recommended and I can see why. She had lots of great ideas and design skills, nothing was too much trouble, with very prompt replies to our emails. The end result blew me away, and I would recommend her web design services to anyone. 100% total satisfaction.

    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.

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!)
