  • From gabbyabbie
    • I was going to ask how you started dying but a couple people beat me to it lol. How did you start selling your yarn. Etsy? Was there anything that you can recall that really boosted your sales, or was it just a combination of your YouTube channel and and doing shows? being from a small town myself I always love hearing stories of how makers get their stuff out there. I love watching your podcast and seeing your beautiful yarn! (And your beautiful faces)
