I have finally gotten everything in place to start selling some of my fabric arts and downloadables. In case you are considering doing something like this, here are the steps I have taken so far:
- Obtained my county and state licenses (I used Legal Zoom.com to do this).
- Set up my online store front through my website supplier (GoDaddy)
- Used one of the storefront themes available with the software and customized it myself.
- Added four of my show quilts and the categories for my downloadable products. These will include embroidery designs for you to buy and use on your own embroidery machine; Prepared-for-applique downloadable images with instructions for how to use them; Free videos showing techniques and product reviews; and finally books I am currently writing on digitizing embroidery using Bernina v7, machine applique using different techniques for different types of applique, and surface design for fabric art.
So here it is…Ta-daaaaa…
Don’t worry, I’ll be sure to let you know when I have the downloadables and the books ready to go (I estimate a week or two for that to start happening).
Sew happy everyone!
