So excited to share that I'm starting a new series on my blog called "Ask me anything!" Finding the time to blog while starting my weaving business has been tough, but I so love writing and the idea of sharing my knowledge about weaving and running a handmade business. Over and over again, the thoughts of writing up weaving tutorials or how-to posts have crossed my mind, quickly to be pushed to the bottom of the to-do list for something more pressing.
And, if I'm being honest, I think part of the reason I've refrained (besides the looming to-do list!) is that it feels scary to consider myself any kind of expert about all of this. I'm still very much a beginner (just over half a year in!) and there's so much I'm still trying to figure out by trial and error.
But, nonetheless, I've gotten questions! Comments on Instagram posts, direct messages, emails -- all asking me tips about weaving or about handmade business advice. And when I get a question like that, I feel a kind of giddiness about doing this whole starting-my-own-business thing. This is what the weaving community is all about. This is what the handmade community is all about. It's about that community, that recognizing that there's a real person taking action and making decision and creating these items. I love being a part of that and being able to give some guidance in that process.
So I decided that I would just take what I'm already doing and share it with a larger audience! Ask me anything: advice about weaving, tutorials, questions about craft shows, small business advice. I'll pick one question each week to dive into! And if there's a lull in questions, I'll write a small post on something that I wish I would have known when I started out!
And by the way, the "ask me anything" part of this was inspired by Elsie Goodwin of Reform Fibers. She's so generous in the information she shares about macrame and the tutorials she posts. Definitely check out her beautiful work!
