Part One: Best Advice
One of the #wemakeyarn photo prompts for January was best advice.
As you can see in the above photo, I had decided to post about giving advice.
Never give up.
Well, I took my own advice to heart as I started working on my business website last night. It was a lot of trial and error, restarting, changing, deleting, pulling from the trash, throwing back in the trash and reading all sorts of advice out on the world wide web.
I think I did enough testing to make sure things are working as properly as possible, so I am officially opening my website store.
Part Two: The Studio
In part, the studio will not only house my love of wool, it will also house my sharing of my love of wool. Working full time outside of the home supports my home, so having a small business in place, I can only hope it will help to support the sharing for my love of wool. The studio is part of a long range retirement plan as well.
Once the studio is completed (fingers crossed for this spring), the studio will be open on weekends for fiber folks to make an appointment to try out knitting machines, different types of spinning wheels, or just rent the equipment for an hour or two without having to commit to any big purchases.
I have no false dreams. I know that Mom & Pop businesses no longer can make it in the box/online store age that we live in. Though, I do have hope. Hope that I can possibly encourage another person in the way of crafting with wool and keeping traditions alive.
Eventually, the website will house the upcoming events for the studio.
Just remember, “it’s bigger on the inside.”
