A Big Decision

There are so many people who sell their fibre or handspun on Etsy, Folksy, Misi, eBay and their own blogs or websites.

So, do we need yet another seller of handpainted roving, batts, handspun yarn?

The reason I ask is because I’m seriously considering it myself.

I enjoyed making the Thunderstorm batts recently and I’ve had quite a few people ask if I would be willing to sell/trade them.

I think it’s something I would enjoy doing and I have quite a few colour ideas, both dyeing and blending.

I don’t normally edit a post once I’ve posted it – it bugs the hell out of me when other people do it as I read through an RSS reader LOL.

If I choose to do this, it’ll mean a big change for me. I don’t work due to my back problem, but this would give me a something. A goal, a purpose, something to do! I had thought before that my own business wasn’t something that I would keep up with, that I’d get bored with it, or forget about it, or pissed off with it if things didn’t sell.

But this will be yarny fibrey goodness – if it doesn’t sell; I can always keep it LOL.

I don’t think it would cost too much to get started. I could buy a few sample packs to make batts. Some undyed roving (I’ve found some at a good price) and some dye. To be honest, I think the dye is going to be the most expensive thing to stock up on!

So…what do you think?
