I’m not the easiest person to find on the web. Part of the problem, I suspect, is that I’m not a marketing kind of gal (I’m getting better). In some cases I have had one customer remove the packaging on my items, in an attempt to make it difficult (if not outright impossible) for other shops to find my and buy my work. I wonder if they think I have enough customers and am getting rich so that I don’t need to sell more work. By the way, they owe me about $700. She knows who she is.
Everyone want to have something unique for their shop and I get that.
But, folks, I have to eat. I have to pay bills. I have to sell my work, and I have to sell it to more than the few people who I sell it to now. I’m not going to go to work at McD’s.
In any case, a customer who hadd one of my needlcases years ago found me and told me the story of how it went missing. She said she couldn’t find my work and then decided to look on Etsy. I have making these needle cases since about 1998. You can check out the reviews in my shop for references to the beauty and quality of these gift items!
Here is the beginning of my outreach: This my latest batch of needlecases. If you have a business and would like to carry them in your shop, just reach out to me and I will tell you how to get wholesale prices.
Would you be interested in a post about how they are made, including some of my *secrets*? Just comment on this post.
