Yay! Shipped out my first official lot of hand-dyed yarn. Of course, this is all still in the early stages and I’m learning a lot as I go. I’ve been dyeing mini skeins and throwing them on Etsy for a few bucks a pop. Much to my surprise a fellow Houstonian picked up five the same day I listed them! This is definitely exciting…
I’ve always been interested in dyeing yarn, so many color possibilities that you just can’t find in a regular hobby store. The past couple of days I’ve been messing around with different powder fabric dyes and food coloring.
What do you think?
In this series of blogs I’m going to break down my 2013 craft show season – and it’s not all pretty. I’ve been to a few small shows but I’ve never entertained the idea of actually participating as a vendor in one until the beginning of this year. I seriously started doing research on various craft forums which included the Etsy forums. There seemed to be a lot of mixed reviews out in the interwebs about shows. I was able to take away a few points that helped me transition into becoming a vendor.
Bring a credit card swiper.
Bring a friend.
Tent, table, table cloths.
Merchandise bags. (…which I totally forgot at my first show but we’ll touch on that in a later.)
Change box and change.
Plenty of items ranging in price.
In my next post I’ll go into detail about my first and second show!
