Join us in welcoming new members that joined during April …. visit their Etsy shops, favourite some items and maybe even share some on social media!
We are a mother/daughter team that does various crafts. I’m Rita (the mom). I do most of the marketing/promotion stuff, quilted tote bags and purses, and quilting. Cindy (the daughter), does all the blogging, crocheting, woodwork, painting, and all the “high tech” stuff. We are still pretty new to this game, so any advice or help will be very much appreciated.
Hello! So glad to be joining this team and I can’t wait to work with you all!
I wish I could say my Etsy shop has a grand story behind it…but it was really a humble beginning (but sometimes aren’t those the best beginnings?). One day a few years ago my sister and I were crocheting and she spontaneously decided to help me start an Etsy store! It took a while to pick up speed, but now that it is steadily growing I couldn’t be happier to be part of this incredible Etsy community, making some money doing what I love. I have a blog where I post crochet patterns, and I sell some of my more advanced patterns, but my true passion is crocheting goods that my incredible customers can love and wear.
This pair of slippers is not only one of my best-selling items, but it has one of my favorite stories. I made this design because someone messaged me, asking if I could do a rush order of bow slippers in summery colors to give to her mom on Mother’s Day. Even though I had other projects at the time, I remember dropping everything to come up with this design and color scheme, and the result continues to be one of my favorite items in my shop. This story illustrates exactly what I love about Etsy – the real, personal interactions that can take place between sellers and customers. I like to think I played a part in blessing that dear mother whose daughter wanted to buy her slippers for Mother’s Day – and it is moments like these that make an Etsy shop rewarding.
Lullaby Quilts & more was created as a work of heart by college friends, Anne and Diane. We have been sharing our rag quilts with family, but wanted to include all of you in the fun!
Lullaby Quilts are handmade rag quilts designed especially for tots and toddlers. The quilts are constructed with three layers of flannel, sewn with the traditional X pattern, and then snipped and snipped and snipped. We machine wash and dry the quilts one time to initiate the ‘fuzzy’ ragging effect. New themes, colors, and patterns are incorporated into each project making each quilt a unique treasure.
Our young customers just love the snuggly softness of their Lullaby Quilts, which prompts them to become their ‘bed-time-buddies!’
We post new quilts designs often, so please check out our Etsy Shop & Facebook page frequently. Special orders are available upon request.
And what about the ‘& more’? We also love to embroider, monogram, and cross stitch, so look for bibs, burp cloths, placemats, dish towels, and golf towels.
Looking forward to getting to know you all!
I am Katya from Orient Gift. Me and my husband making nice Baby nests at home and some of our relatives are helping us to do more listings. I am Russian my husband is Turkish and we live in Turkey. We were working in tourism but I think you all know it’s a tough time for tourism in Turkey. So we lost our jobs and try to do something at home. This is how we met with Etsy family and you guys. This is how I open an Etsy Shop. You can see it is just a start but we are trying to learn. And Christmas in July Team is a good team to learn. I spend most of my time to read and learn more and so soon i d like to be more active team-mate. Best regards and here is the beautiful pink babynest that I made :
My shop is Kat’s Curio Cabinet… named for my mother and filled with the items she, my step-dad, and my in-laws collectedthroughout their lives. As the curator of the beautiful and sometimes crazy items they chose save, I love Esty! The lifetime collection of four people does not fit in my house… through my Etsy shop these little treasures find new homes where they will be used and enjoyed. Beautiful things tucked away in boxes is such a shame. I enjoy sharing stories and have been fortunate to have wonderful customers which makes this a happy experience.Conservatively, it will take 3 years of sorting, researching, cataloging, and posting to get through all of the boxes.
I am sharing one of my more unusual items: A 3 dimensional gold outhouse charm. The door opens and inside is a man sitting on the pot reading with his pants around his ankles. The detail is amazing…and still it’s an outhouse! My step-dad loved to raise eyebrows, he bought it in Alaska in the 1950’s or 1960’s.
Hello from me. Looking forward to work with you. My shop is Gavriila. I make knitted jewelry, mostly one-of-a-kind pieces. I am sharing one of my latest products. This jewelry set I made as a custom request for necklace I have previously sold. It was impossible to make it the same once again since it was one only necklace, I came up with another idea, which arose two new necklaces, and in my opinion I made it even more beautiful than the previous one. But I came very late with the order so I decided to give it at very reduced price, and as a jewelry set,together with matching earrings and bracelets. Meanwhile customer changed his made and I decided to keep the same price. I would be very happy if someone likes at and wears it.
