Hello all,

Recently I've decided I'd like to try selling my handstiched yo-yo quilts. I have one almost finished which is blue and yellow floral fabrics for a large baby crib (30"x60") I'd like to put up for sale. Fabrics are of medium to high quality and the quilt is durable. I'm wondering if something like this would sell well and if so, how could I go about doing this?

I have looked around on ebay but not sure about that. I'd rather try selling through an online shop or, if someone is interested, as a "guest artist" so to speak. I'd also be highly interested in taking custom orders, etc. I would not be restricted to size and colors but if I'd do custom orders I'd need deposits for materials. Also, what would be a good price for something like this?

Is there any help out there? Thanks to all in advance!

Do you have a picture? It would be easier for people to give you an idea on price if they could see it. Good luck...

The good thing about selling on the Internet is that you don't necessarily have to keep a large inventory.  This works especially well when you're creating quilts, etc. which can vary a lot, depending on color, design, etc.  You should sell your product on MetroFaction (http://www.metrofaction.com) as they offer flexible options, allow for professional features, such as accepting credit cards online, auto-email notifications, etc.  They're reasonably priced as well.  This site would work especially well with crafts, because they allow you to create any options you need.  For example, you could create a product option of "main color" and "secondary color" or "design" and specify your values for each.  I was a beta tester earlier in the year, and it was pretty cool!
