I helped a friend start up her Etsy shop last month, and she asked me about my first sale. It was this quilt. I can't believe that this week I will have been selling on Etsy for 8 years! I've seen a lot of changes on Etsy during that time, but overall I am still very happy selling there. I am able to have my items seen all over the world and share my love of quilting with a much wider audience than I would ever reach otherwise.
I've learned a lot in all those years about so many things! I actually understand a bit about SEO, how to edit my photos, and shipping rates are not a mystery to me anymore. I'm sure I have a lot more to learn as I continue my experience with online selling, and I am excited to see what the next few years will bring! I have a couple of neat opportunities coming up this month, so I am anticipating writing about them, and of course there are lots of quilts in the making...always!
Thanks so much for all of your support as I continue to grow - for reading my ramblings and encouraging my efforts!
