Wow, what a year 2018 was! First, thank you all for all of your support in 2018! Every like, comment, purchase, it all means so much to me! This weaving business is still so new to me, but it is still very fun to see how far I have come in one year.
Here are some of my favorite highlights of 2018:
I started teaching workshops! The amazing women of Gathered Goods Company, Tara and Nicole, reached out about teaching workshops. This has been such a great way to connect with the community, spread my love of weaving, and help spark creativity in others.
I did more markets! Six markets total. Thanks to all who came out and supported me in-person!
I learned how to use a floor loom! I took the Intro to Floor Loom Weaving class at the Weavers Guild of MN in July. I learned so much! Highly recommend the class!
I made some really great connections in the maker community! Markets are great to meet new and existing customers, but I also love getting to meet other makers. It is one of the best parts of markets!
What's in store for 2019:
More markets! I have some big markets that I am gearing up to apply for!
New products! Along with what I already offer, I will be adding to the lineup. I am planning on woven tote bags, napkins, tea towels, and possibly even clothing. I'm also going to be changing the bags I currently offer. I will be making them more structured, and I will be adding a wristlet strap so you can have your hands free. The sizes may change as well. That is something I am currently trying out. Oh and I'll be making a wall hanging or two as well :) Can't wait for you to see all that is offered in 2019!
More workshops! I’m going to continue to spread the weaving love!
More stockists! I’m really hoping to get my products in more store or do pop-ups in some stores. Due to working outside the home, being a mom and a human who likes to have a some sort of life, I haven’t had the time or energy to reach out to stores yet. I am really hoping to change that this year!
I have some big plans and dreams and goals for 2019! It’s going to be an exciting year, and I can’t wait to share it all with you!
