crochet:: etsy, ravelry, and me

I have a love/hate relationship with Esty. There, I said it. I have opened and closed my shop a couple of times over the past 9 years. I think this time it’s for good. Their model just isn’t sustainable for a small potatoes pattern writer and indie yarn dyer like me.

I’m still migrating all of my patterns to Ravelry, and I think I will keep it that way. Hell, I may even return to regular blogging here. I’m not a social media mogul or an influencer. Actually, I laughed while typing that because pfftt…I don’t want to be either of those things. I’m not an in-your-face sales person. I’m going back to basics.

While the blog posts will be short & sweet, I will see you around here more often.

If you’re interested, the patterns above are available in my Ravelry shop.


Thanks for stopping by😊

  1. It is interesting to hear this as I have sometimes wondered if I should try putting my patterns on Etsy but haven’t done so because it looks as if it would cost me more and I don’t know if I would make more sales. I like you have no desire to be an influencer. Good Luck for the future.
