etsy shop

I have finally set up and started to stock the etsy shop.  I had a hard time deciding on whether to start on etsy, artfire or both.  Etsy won out!  I also have the artfire shop set up but it is not yet stocked.   For now I am going with the etsy store and will be working on getting it fully stocked.  Please check it out at and let me know what you think.  My biggest challenge is the photography, getting a good clear photo with true colors has been difficult.  I am hoping for sun tomorrow so I can take photos in natural light.

I was so excited when I received my first etsy sale.  The first item to be sold was the cool jewel roving, definitely one of my favorites. 

Here are some photos from the etsy shop:

more Stitches photos

Thank you to everyone who helped set up, worked at and shopped at the Twisted Sunshine booth at Stitches West, a great time was had by all.  This was our first big show and we shared a booth with Slipped Stitches Studio.  The booth was chock full of fiber, yarns, crazy spinning batts, sheep and spinning earrings, counting bracelets and project bags.  Everyone loved the beautiful Kundert spindles we carried and we had the opportunity to teach several people how to drop spindle.  To those who bought spindles and those buy a spindle in the future, my offer to teach you, or follow up on the spindling lessons given at Stitches still is open.  Spinning is fun and relaxing, add in the beatuiful dyed rovings and batts of Twisted Sunshine and you have the makings of a great project.

Here are some of our yarns and crazy batts
