Posts about knitting related business and websites


I’m excited to announce a new venture that’s been brewing behind the scenes for about a month now.

Ever thought of sending a yarn gift to someone or to a secret pal for a special occasion? Here’s your chance! The site offers yarns wrapped in bouquets to be sent to anyone you so choose. You can even include a card and we’ll personalize it for you and send the bouquet to the gift recipient’s address. We like to think of these bouquets as [I][B]“joyful gifts for fiber enthusiasts”[/B][/I].

Also offered is custom colourway yarn requests - just choose your yarn base and let us know what colours you want…it’s as simple as that!


Thanks for visiting!


Those are seriously beautiful gifts- i LOVE that idea and I’m thinking about my first order already!!! I’m a little confused about the custom colorway- I coulnd’t find a place on the site that shows colors I can choose from- or is it anything I desire? Hmmmmm THANKS


Hi there:

I am a knitter for 20 years, now turn seller for all kinds of knitting organizers. If you are interested, check my stuff out at

Thanks and hope to chat with you knitters here soon.


Checked out your site. Very nice! I will be ordering in the future. I’m not familar with giving yardage in “m”. Could you also give a conversion in yards? thanks


I enjoyed your site and just found out about it through this forum. I will be ordering in the future. Could you please give conversions for yardage?


I thought I’d post a note here. My parents have an ebay store and atm they have some different yarns, bamboo SP and some circulars in their store. They perodically get different things in and if you don’t see something you’d like to see, you may email them and they may be able to get it for you!

Take a look for yourself as there is lots of things they offer and usually things change monthly!



I finally got around to setting up my store. I’m working on getting more stuff in the store.


hi all iam nicola opened my website in march for knitted food.
here the link for the website

hope you will take a look knitted food good enough to eat!!!


I have a new shop on Etsy, it’s linked from my signature.

It’s all yarn yarn yarn, like knitting and crochet and some just yarn.

I have lots of knitted, crocheted and yarn jewelry and more accessories.

Coming will be larger purses (clutches to start) and cozies).

I have lots more to make and more finished to add, but it’s too darn HOT here in Boston!! Should be better tomorrow.

Etsy’s a really fun site for handmade goods! You should check that out in general if you haven’t already.

If you like what you see, but want something similar, Etsy has a convo feature where you can request custom items.

Whew, that’s enough, I can barely use my brain in this heat - sorry!


Oh and any of you who make stuff to sell can start an Etsy shop! (Provided you have a compatible credit or debit card, like I read one UK student didn’t have one. :sad: )

I could have started one at my own domain, but I liked the built-in community of Etsy for just starting out!

There is a new source online for hand dyed and hand spun yarns. Check it out. They have nice colorways in both sport and fingering weights. Great for shawl or sock knitting.


I just wanted to let all the fiber fanatics out there know that I just opened an online yarn shop called I sell yarn that I hand dye and some hand spun yarn. I also have the ever popular Go Knit Pouches which are perfect for small projects and have a little snap thingy that lets you attach it to your purse or belt loop for totally portable knitting. Please go check out my new store at Thanks!!!

Hi, my name is Laura and I have just opened a yarn store in Hickory, NC. Please come and visit!!!



I want to start selling a 1-3 page newsletter, once a month, each with a design. Each letter will have a full color photograph of the (sometimes completed) design, and if possible, a closeup of the stitching. The instructions are clear and precise, and Redheadrachel, of the forum, has already agreed to test the first one, and she should have gotten it by now. I’ll include pictures of the issues I have done, so you can determine if you want to subscribe or not.

$20 for a year’s subscription (12 issues)

PM me for details.

[COLOR=red]I [B]CAN[/B] adjust prices, if necessary. I want everybody that wants them to be able to get the newsletters.[/COLOR]


Here’s the closeup of issue #1 and it’s design.


My name is Joyce, I’m a mixed media artist in Birmingham Alabama and the owner of Elliebelly Paper & Fiber Arts. I’ve been in business on the web since April of 2001, offering hand-dyed items, predominately yarn.

I’m a terrible yarn 'ho and am particularly fond of cashmere and silk. I dye a lot of Blue Faced Leicester, Alpaca, Merino, and cotton too.

My website is at

I also sell yarn at


I would love it if you would drop by for a visit! :knitting:
