I am Jennifer. I am a mom to 2 young kids. I am working at growing a crafting business. I have started designing knitting patterns. I also sew and knit things. I mostly sell at Etsy right now. I look forward to participating in this community.



  1. Hello there :) I have recently set up a shop on Etsy too, how do you find selling there? I am still learning how to market items there effectively, it seems so different than other online selling sites eg.. (ebay)

  2. I like etsy. It has benn a bit slow maybe, but I haven't really tried hard to promote myself yet. I think I have done okay, and I feel it will just get better.

    I have started thinking about a bit of advertising, but I want to get a bunch of stuff made first to make it worthwhile. I was thinking of or even facebook.

  3. Hi Jennifer
    I have heard lots about Etsy but have no idea how to use it. Do you think it is a service that compliments all businesses?

  4. Etsy is mainly for handmade and vintage stuff. it is not for reselling store bought stuff unless you have altered it.
