Etsy!

I finally got most of my pieces up on Etsy. Hopefully I can get some sales going on there. I offer free shipping on multiple purchases, and purchases over $100. Stop on by and check it out! The pillows are also on there.

Rachel L.H. again, checking out more of your work. I think it's possible you're offering your work in the wrong venues. Being in the middle of my MFA in creative writing and environment, I'm struggling with publishing, and finding that a lot of what's selling is technically brilliant but soulless. You are a working artist who maybe should be showing at working artist shows. Have you looked in to the Iowa Art Festival, held annually in des Moines? I think your work could do really well there. Anyway, you've got a new fan, and I will definitely be keeping an eye on your work.

Steph,
I'd love to hear how you do with Etsy, I'm thinking of opening a shop of my own.
I think the previous poster is right; you need to find venues that embrace fiber art. Entering things like Quilt National and beign accepted also gives the work prestige. Are you a member of SAQA? They offer lots of chances for exhibit. Just something to consider.
