greatly Crochet Makers and Fiber Artists   Join Me On

There is a new online marketplace coming that should be beneficial to makers as well as tastemakers and I’ve signed up. I’m looking for really creative cool crocheters and other fiber artists to join me.

What is is a brand new site that hasn’t even quite launched yet but is about to open its online doors soon. Here’s how it works:

Basically, makers just take what they are already making it add it to the site. They’re looking for really beautiful, handcrafted, unique items. This isn’t just another Etsy. It’s a highly curated, carefully collected beautiful online shop. Think your favorite urban high end boutique filled with local items … except that it’s online and local gets a little more global.

Tastemakers curate their own boutiques with the items that they like most and then work to promote and sell those items. So the maker just makes the item – no catch – and the tastemaker tries to sell it. The tastemaker does all of the promotion work; the makers make and ship the items. The maker gets 50% of any sales. Tastemakers get a small percentage as well. There are no upfront costs or hidden fees. Everyone wins.

My Boutique

I’m excited to be in the early stages of creating my own Boutique, which I’ll be able to share with you once I’m all set up in the system and ready to go. For now, I’ll share my vision:

  • A carefully curated collection of fiber art, fashion and jewelry
  • An emphasis on celebrating crochet items, of course
  • A shop that highlights truly one of a kind items, the kind of items that I myself would want to make or buy
  • Promotion of unique makers in the boutique and on this blog

I’m hoping to make something really special here and I’m excited about the team of influential bloggers I’m joining as gets ready to launch.

Are You A Maker?

If you’re a maker interested in signing up to create a studio on, here’s the form that you have to fill out to apply. I’m especially seeking to work with vendors who create contemporary, slightly quirky crochet jewelry, accessories, home decor and art.
