10 Years on Etsy!

Today I am celebrating the 10th Anniversary of opening my Etsy shop - PamelaQuilts!  I opened it just several months after starting this blog (yes, I did miss celebrating my 10 year of blogging somehow as well).

Here is the first quilt I sold on Etsy - Family Treasures:

I was so delighted to send it to the purchaser!  I think every sale has actually been a delight to me - it's always fun to send these works of my hand and heart off to a new home.  I genuinely feel a connection to each buyer and really enjoy knowing that they will enjoy their quilts.  It's such fun to know my quilts live all over the US and even across the world in Australia, England, and many other places.

Selling on Etsy has given me the opportunity to learn and grow in many areas.  I've learned a bit about photography, SEO and marketing!  It's been really fun - and challenging.  Etsy has changed a lot since I first joined.  At times it can be frustrating, but I still feel like it is worth it to keep up on.

One of the best parts about Etsy is the Quiltsy Team.  We are a group of Etsy sellers who are quilters.  What a great group it is, and I am so proud to be their captain.  It sure keeps me on my toes, but it is worth every minute of my effort!  We are currently in the middle of a team promotion - Quiltsy Cares.  Today is my feature day (and my day to write the post - how in the world did I manage to do that?  I really was not paying attention!)  You can visit TeamQuiltsy to see that post as well.

I am offering 10% off all purchases in my Etsy shop for the next week to celebrate.  I have my original patterns as well as quilts, lanyards and luggage tags available.  Plus Quilted Journal covers, and a few assorted odds and ends.  Take a look and see if you find anything you might like!
