WEBINAR: How to Start Your Own Knitting Etsy Store: A Step by Step Guide

When the folks at Interweave asked me if I'd be interested in teaching my Etsy webinar for a different genre, Knitting, I was leery at first. I mean, being a jewelry designer just lightly dabbling in a new knitting hobby, what do I really know about that. But, as it turns out, the instructional steps to starting a shop really doesn't vary much between jewelry designers and knitters. 

So I merely revamped the webinar to accommodate knits instead of jewelry - and while doing so, realized that Etsy has made some changes. Most of the listing process now looks different than it did a few months ago.  So eventually I'll be doing an updated version of the jewelry shop webinar to reflect these changes in my presentation.

If you are a knitter who has dabbled with the idea of selling your knits online, and would like a beginners course - something step by step showing you all the ins and outs of taking payments and running an online store, this webinar is really going to be the ticket for you!!


I will be presenting LIVE on April 1, and 1pm est. Head on over to the Interweave store to sign up for the live event but if you can't make the live event, you'll end up getting the recorded version emailed a few days after. Along with the Q & A answers.

Looking forward to seeing you there!!

  1. This is not spam but I can understand why people are writing things to you which you consider spam. Since etsy went public (and also MANY, stores have been hearing crickets in their shops since then) all I surmise is that etsy is making visible the shops that have 10's of 1000's of sales (no matter how they made those sales) and anyone who has 500 or less sales, no matter how long they have been with etsy (I've been with etsy since 2011; it is a soap, personal care items and hand spun fiber shop) they are making those shops invisible. I have had only one sale since January 2015 and that is highly unusual because I have repeat customers so, they must not be able to find me because of the search algorithm being changed to only display the sellers that sell in the 10's of 1000's. I, for one did sell knitted items in my shop but stopped because people do not know how to measure themselves correctly and then return the item. I, and other knitters and garment makers don't need that. One sure fire way to make money in the fiber arts area is to write patterns for your knitted and/or crochet items. They'll sell like wildfire, even if they make the item and it doesn't fit. It's money in the bank.
    Again, I am not spamming you. Just relaying a few facts that are well known to those in e-commerce and in e-commerce newsletters that I subscribe to.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
