Today I offically opened an Etsy Shop. (There's a not so cute link on the top right. see it?) It's something I have been thinking about for a while- but wasn't sure I wanted to take the plunge.

I decided to open the shop as a way to sell some of our SAMPLES. These are the quilts that were made and photographed for our pattern covers. Not ALL of them are for sale- but you can see the ones that are on Etsy.

I know that some people will be sad to know- but I am not selling patterns in my Etsy shop at this time. It's a difficult decision to make. I know that many of you don't have easy access to my patterns. I'm working on that. However, if I decided to sell my patterns retail then I start to compete with my distributors. You understand that, right!?

But don't dismay.

Very soon I will be adding KITS to my Etsy shop. Yep, that's right.

When I debut a quilt pattern on this blog you will be able to go over to the Etsy Store and buy the kit (and it will include the pattern) to make the EXACT quilt on the cover. Obviously this may not be possible with every-single quilt that I design. But I will make every effort to have a kit available.

So, head on over to Etsy and check out ME!

Congrats and good luck! Oh--and my plans have changed next week. Thursday or Friday are both fine. Just let me know a time and place!

Yay! That will be so awesome! Can you help me get ahold of a couple of your patterns? I can't find them anywhere, I've tried the links on your blog to the stores that sell them, but can't find them. Anyway I want to try the Lady Bug Picnic and the Scrappy Stars. Thanks!

You do such a great job! Good Luck with your etsy shop!

I was all excited about this, thinking you would be selling your patterns but then........nope, you aren't. So sad. Yeah, I haven't had much luck finding all of your patterns either. I pretty much can only shop online.
I'll move on to something else then, I guess.

Yeah! Congratulations on your etsy debut! I think it is a great idea to sell your kits on etsy. Your quilts are so pretty, it is a great way for more people to have access to them! Good luck! :)
