First blog post! I have been putting myself out there as a crochet artist, both locally in Austin and on social media for about a year now and I have finally made the leap to set up the first Will Crochet website.
For the last several weeks, I’ve been in furious production mode in preparation for my first ever trunk show. I will be selling a variety of handmade items such as the taco key chains pictured on this page, pins, wall hangings, framed art, and household wares. Along the way, I have learned so much about how to start a business and build a brand, but I have a long way to go, hence the first half of the title, “Baby Steps.”
My goals for this first show are:
- Have fun
- Sell some things
- Gather data on what people want to buy
- Start an email mailing list
Once I learn a little bit more about what sells, I will open up my first Etsy shop.
