12  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Outside sales and two shops on: July 13, 2006 07:45:25 AM
This summer has been much more crazy than I had expected, so I haven't been able to open a shop yet. I'm still thinking about it for the future though. I was wondering how some things have been for you experienced sellers.

How do you do as far as sales that come from people you've advertised to in person? I would expect that much of my sales could come from this form of advertising, but I'm worried that friends and family may be hestiant to sign up for an etsy account. What has been your experience with this?

I also have two different "lines" that I would want to sell. One being items all with a similar design on them, the other being more random items. Since I don't see that there's a way to do different catergories in the same shop, would I be better to start two different shops or just mix it all in?

13  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / I want to be a hooker too! on: July 08, 2006 10:26:13 AM
I learned how to crochet in high school when I got done with my sewing project early and my teacher was nice enough to teach me how to crochet. I didn't learn anything complicated - just chain, single and double crochet and how to make a granny square. I loved the granny square and made a granny square lap blanket for my great grandmother (all one big square because I never knew how to change colors or add them together or anything).

Since that's been probably about 5 years ago and I haven't kept up with it, I can't remember how to make a granny square for the life of me. I have all the supplies and have been trying for like two nights to get it right. I've looked at patterns online but I feel like I've been doing something wrong, b/c once I get to a certain point it just isn't coming out right so I have to rip it all out. I've seen all the lovely blankets on here and I desperately want to remember how to make those little squares and make cute little blankets. Really, a granny square is all I want to do, I know I don't really have any patience for a larger project.

Anyways, enough of my lamenting, I did have a question for you experienced crocheters. When you all work with yarn, do you reroll the yarn into balls? I never have before, but (obviously I'm not experienced) I didn't know if it would help out in the long run when working on projects?

Thanks so much!
14  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / What to do before opening an Etsy shop. on: January 21, 2006 07:39:59 AM
Hey everyone, I've been reading different posts around here about different Etsy shops (I LOVE everyone's things btw). I'm thinking about opening up a small one in the future, but I want to make sure I'm ready to do it.

So, I was wondering, what did you all do to prepare in opening your Etsy shop? Or, what do you wish you had done in advance?

Thanks in advance for any advice that you have!  Grin
