Hello fellow maker!
Welcome to my newsletter, The Business of Handmade. I’m delighted to be here on Substack where you can browse previous newsletters, and where I can share more of my long-form writing, which many of you have enjoyed as my mega-captions on Instagram over the years.
I’ve titled my newsletter The Business of Handmade because it best reflects what you’ll see here:
what it's like running a hand-dyed yarn business
what’s coming up in the shop & monthly shopping hours
how I’m doing towards my goal of creating a fully handmade wardrobe
tender places where politics, economics, and handmaking intersect
I hope my newsletter will become a conversation between you, me, and all of the other subscribers. You can hit the like button (each “like” gives me a zing of happiness) or comment on something I’ve written that resonates with you. And, you can comment and I — and others — can comment back.
The newsletter is free for all, and I am so glad you’re here.
