  1. Wow THANK YOU for putting these together, especially the photography and business sections. Although I am a yarn & fabric supply shop, I do host guilds, teach basic classes and make a few handmade things to try to promote my shop. Great tips :)

  2. Thanks for sharing this roundup!

  3. Hi Stacey! This is a FANTASTIC roundup! There IS business planning in my 2013, so I’ll be using this post a lot.

    A teaser about my upcoming plans, and a question: How do you feel about crocheting plushies with handspun yarn? :)

    • Stacey says:

      That’s such a great question about the handspun! I’ve done it before, and the effect can be fabulous! In my opinion, you’d want a handspun of mostly uniform thickness… since in general, plushies made with thick/thin yarn wind up with holes that stuffing pokes through on the thin yarn bits.
      Go for it!
