Etsy Bitsy

I don't exactly know what the word Etsy means or where it came from.  The only thing that springs to mind has something to do with a yellow polka-dot bikini... but I have now joined the Etsy community, a site for buying and selling handmade goods.  Their mission is to enable people to make a living making things. 

While I am far from making a living at it, I did actually have my first sale of a couple of quilt patterns on Etsy the day I set it up.   I already sell patterns on my website, but here is just one more way to get the word out.  I mean, if my Carpenter's Star class was one of the first two classes to fill up at Quilt Fest (http://www.utahquiltguild.org/), hey!  Someone must like it!!  And now someone in Massachusetts and someone else in Georgia can make one too!  Woohoo!  So I'll keep making things, and who knows?  Maybe someday I can actually make a living with all those etsy bitsy teeny weeny sales.     My Etsy Store
