Yarn and advertising
I understand one of the above reasonably well and I've finally bought more yarn (woolwarehouse.co.uk):
and more cotton fabric to line the purses with (Regent Home of Sewing):
Aren't they all just gorgeous?! 😍😍😍 This cotton fabric is thicker than what I bought previously. I hadn't been to Regent for quite some time, and it seems they have reopened with reduced hours. I was so happy to be there again as it is a brilliant shop - huge variety of fabrics, crochet thread, haberdashery and sewing machines. The staff is knowledgeable and offer excellent customer service, I'd recommend it. They also sell on eBay.
I spoke with a lady from Google Ads earlier this week, as I queried why I had been charged for my ad going live when I wasn't aware it had. Seems I can't get out of this payment 🙄 (never mind) but I have removed the ad so as not to incur further charges.
A quick bit of research told me there are lots of online directories that offer free advertising, which I need to get started on. Who knows if
a - free advertising really is 'free' (there's no such thing as a free lunch!)
b - it actually works - it must be free for a reason
but either way, what have I got to lose? I guess the only downside I can think of is that I'd rather be crocheting! Time spent on creating accounts online and adding details of my "business" is time away from crocheting!
Work in Progress #wip
I usually have more ideas on my mind than is possible to execute then and there. I have released the last of the brightly coloured purses (green, red, blue without beads) that you may be quite familiar with by now. I crocheted them some time ago and finally finished them this week using the new lining pictured above. I like the idea of crocheting motifs to go on the flap of the purse, and this has lead me here:
I'm hoping to have these finished and available for sale by Friday 31st July 2020.
Thank you so much for reading/scrolling, wishing you a good week! See you next Sunday at 5.30pm
