So since this is new this year I have a question or two about it.

I make amigurumi which are crocheted yarn plush, so I selected "Fabric Sculptures / Plush" for my product type, but now I'm wondering if I should have selected other instead. Amigurumi can be considered plush toys, but they aren't the same as fabric plush toys. I'm just wondering if getting lumped into plush is a good or bad thing. Maybe I'm over thinking this?

Also, I do sell a very small amount of printed charms of my artwork as well. I disclosed that info in the description, but is that something that will also be taken into consideration if a studio sells a variety of items?


Also-also, will we be organized in the program guide by our product types? I think that might actually be a little helpful if someone wants to look for studios who make specific products that they are interested in.

I also had a question on the product types.
I sell little tote bags and purse bags and selected "fabric" - I didn't think they were technically considered wearables since they're not clothing, but I wasn't sure if fabric was supposed to refer to something else...?
A lot of my items didn't fit the boxes either (miniature clay sculptures (not mixed media, so I didn't check that), charms and bookmarks) so I just put that all in the description and checked 'other.' Hope that was okay!
I will (hopefully) be attending ACen 2015 as an Artist.
You can view my merchandise at my Etsy Shop.
Or visit my DA for more samples of my chibis and prints.
Feel free to message me with any suggestions or comments!

should e-mail's regarding any clarification be sent to a specific e-mail or just any of the ones attached on your signature line? and if there is something we wish to add (if we are chosen to be in AA) to our list of products, should we e-mail for approval? for instance, I have been working on anime charm pouches and tarrot cards. this is something that I want to sell but only if I can find a good print company and I might not know how long the order will take to get back to me.but if I am in the AA I would like to sell them if they are ready.
