What is your favorite new product for 2020?
๐Ÿงถ
This year we've been standardizing a lot of our popular combinations--like a super soft sport weight blend of alpaca and merino, for example, or our luxury cashmere blends--and offering them in a dozen different color combinations for easy shopping. These combinations have always been an option for customers to put together themselves using our Custom Yarn Creator, but I know that designing a yarn from scratch can be intimidating to some people, so having these suggested combinations ready to go has been helpful in getting the ball rolling. And of course we can always customize further if you don't see the color you're looking for, or want it wound up in a different weight.
๐Ÿงถ
What's something you've learned through running your business in the past 12 months?
๐Ÿงถ
"That the tools we are all learning to use to get us through COVID can be just as useful in cultivating customer relationships in an online business. We closed our brick & mortar shop in 2016 and moved to online-only. Yarn is a funny business for the online world, because of course customers want to be able to see, touch, swatch, and feel the yarn. Even prior to closing our B&M I'd always offered to send samples and swatch photos to our faraway customers, and used tools like intensive consultations over email or the chat feature on our website to help customers design their perfect yarn.

But now that everyone is so used to Zooming and screensharing, I've been able to take this up a notch and get my customers just about as close to the real-life experience as possible, with video consultations, demos of me winding their yarn, and even a weekly Virtual Knit & Crochet Night that we started up back in the spring when COVID first hit. It's been a great way to connect with both new customers who are just discovering us, as well as reconnecting with longtime customers whose faces I miss from when they used to come in to the shop back in the day!"

What is your favorite new product for 2020?
๐ŸŒฟ
My favorite new product in 2020 is the Enclosed Houseplant Terrarium Kit! Enclosed terrariums are a self-contained ecosystem that can flourish for months, if not, YEARS, without being watered, being mindful that it needs proper light. Because of the enclosure, it allows the terrarium to recycle its water, carbon dioxide, and oxygen.
๐ŸŒฟ
How did you get started in your business?
๐ŸŒฟ
I had a growing stash of used candle jars and didn't want to throw them away, so I upcycled one of the candle jars and created a succulent terrarium arrangement! Thus, the brand Live Long and Plant was born!

The Works Seattle started with Kellie Phelan's journey of humble beginnings as a one-woman pop-up, to moving in with Seattle Seed Company, to taking over the space and offering almost 30 in-person classes a month! Since then, Covid has taken us in some new directions, and just eight months later, we are lucky to be operating a thriving DIY kit business.

A virtual CRAFT show? How does this work? One of the things we all miss the most about our in-person shows is the ability for shoppers and makers to engage face-to-face to learn about their products. We are aiming to emulate that experience as much as possible with virtual vendor booths, live events...

I'm really excited about our face serum. It is a light, easily absorbed formula for mature skin. which is super moisturizing and nourishing. It smells delicious and it feels wonderful on skin. It is perfect for oily to dry skin and can be used after your morning cleansing routine (followed by make up if that's your thing) and at night before going to bed.

None of your links are working. I do not want to go zoom and live I just want to click on each vendor and see what they are selling. I feel sorry for the vendors who did all this work and we keep getting an error message and it is after 10:30am. Error establishing a database connection
We're having a little trouble accessing the Winter Show...?
Error trying to access the website. :(
Can anyone suggest a way to remove, with a saw? the 3" platform soles of some others pretty cool boots? I am already almost 6 foot, so.... I would love to keep them as flats. They are som think black foam but hard rubber. I can take and post a pic in the comments if needed!
Are Thursdays in Occidental Square happening beginning July 2? The description talks about cruise ships and doesn't talk about safety protocols...so just wondering....
I have a question about a resellerโ€™s permit that Iโ€™m hoping the WA crafting community can help me with. I used to do garden design and had a permit for buying plants and other landscape stuff. But Iโ€™ve now switched to focusing on my art and need to update my permit. I make mobiles made of found nature and other things, and the materials I buy include air plants (to put inside the mobiles) assorted jewelry materials, and metal tubing. I contacted WA DOR to ask about the change and they told me to get the right code from NAICS. I looked through the codes but just got more confused and when I emailed for help at NAICS, they just referred me back to DOR! The code for independent artist is 711510. Does anyone know if this code is sufficient and broad enough to cover purchase of various materials (ie. not only limited to โ€œart suppliesโ€) ? Iโ€™d appreciate any feedback that could help me. Thanks so much!
I would like to be a vendor! Cannot find the link to the application process!

Hi! I'm downsizing my space and have hundreds of yards of high quality fabric (silk, t-shirt knits, corduroy, etc.) along with bins full of sewing notions and craft supplies that I'm looking to sell. I'm looking for more of an open market space vs. listing everything individually online - any suggestions? TIA!
