About Us

We are the Rochester New York Etsy Street Team (RNEST), a group of crafters & artisans living in or around Rochester, NY, working together to promote our products and each other.  Joined in a common cause, we create handmade items that we share with the world through our Etsy shops.   We have discussions online through our Ning site and in-person at monthly team meetings.  We also hold various events throughout the year.
