21  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Need opinions on: January 20, 2015 08:13:31 AM
Sorry, it looks like a site that I would be afraid to click anything on. I feel a virus is just waiting to happen to me. Therefore, I did not click.

Just a note that you should update that video with the new bins and a more non-holiday related theme.
23  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Not A Business, Just a Blog on: January 20, 2015 08:05:13 AM
As far as finding blogs people actually read, probably a blog ranking site would be a good start http://www.blogmetrics.org/crafts

One thing about good craft blogs is that there are tutorials galore. Tutorials are very, very tedious to put together. However, if you want to rank, you have to do it.

Another way to do it is just to become a referral/resource site (a corresponding pinterest and/or tumblr would work well there). You could link to other sites that have the tutorials you like. I would put "with free tutorial" somewhere in the title of each post so folks can easily spot them when browsing.
24  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Do you charge your friends for commissioned gifts for others? on: December 06, 2014 05:49:31 AM
It has happened to me quite a few times that people come up to me with their repair work "because I like sewing and the tailor shop is asking $15".

That kind of person doesn't deserve my help - whatever someone else would charge 'em, I'd triple it!  Wink

Well, if making stuff isn't a "business" with you, just to keep it real, ask for $10 plus materials, or round it out. Nobody's going to squawk over $10 and that way you're not totally being taken advantage of (a little bit taken advantage of... yes.). You're not responsible to play the part of Lady Bountiful to friends-of-friends.

"...First, we love trying new craft projects, but dislike having to always buy a bunch of stuff to see if we'll enjoy our new project or not..."

So you do what, have other people buy it for you?

Yes, that wording is a bit... off. I think what you mean to say is that if YOU buy our box, then YOU don't have to buy a bunch of stuff just to see if you'll enjoy a new project or not.

You could sew a couple 60-inchers together to get 120, then you could make a full circle, yes? It would be less work than sewing multiple panels together.

If you have a local store that sells fabric, go on in and familiarize yourself with the different fabrics, blends, feel, and drape. Take notes! I personally like polyester blends for circle skirts - NO IRONING (that's a lot of fabric, indeed!) and the drape is nice.

Everything will work until it doesn't work anymore! Things will always break at inconvenient moments, and we can't predict the future. I think you've answered your own questions, it all depends on what you're comfortable doing, replacing the slider or installing a whole new zipper.

Sure, they'll sell to the steampunk/urban and Potter crowd. It's just a matter of finding the buyers. If you join etsy you can join a Florida etsy group and they can feed you craft show opps where such folks show up.
