How long on Etsy: As Nimblejacks sine 2009
Do you sew for yourself? I wish I had the time, I am constantly sewing custom orders when I'm not making for my Etsy shop so somehow I never quite get to make myself anything! I have made myself a Revvy reversible sling bag this week though in lovely denim and pink fabrics, as a mum you can never have a big enough bag for all your famiy's belongings. I don't mind not sewing for me, making custom orders is so much fun.
Any new projects? Hopefully within the next two weeks I will have my own Nimblejacks website running alongside my Etsy shop. I under took a custom order for a freind to make a giant 6ft x 4ft fuzzy felt stand for a show – which she paid for by designing me a website, which was wonderful. Social networking and brainstorming is a great way to further your business and make new contacts. Todat I'm playing about with some new bag designs, pincushions and wooly cushions so keep your eyes on my shop for new arrivals.
Your own fav Etsy purchase ever? These Long Stemmed Sterling Silver Flower Post Earrings from the shop, Metal Rocks. These were bought as a gift for my Mum and they were beautiful, very well crafted and designed. Not at all heavy but at the same time not flimsy. A lovely seller to deal with she was very helpful and the earrings came in a cute box as well. So gorgeous I was nearly tempted to keep them- luckily I wrapped them up for my mum who was delighted with them. I may have to go back for more :D
