Edinburgh Yarn Festival

Super excited (or maybe scared) about this now!

Only two more sleeps and I'll be there sharing a stall with Amanda from OwlPrintPanda. We had a wee get together last night to discuss our table design and generally have a panic about how it'll go. I'm sure it'll be fine once we get started! 

I've been busy putting some listings up on my Etsy shop under the EYF section so that people can buy online. I'd love to be able to do easy card transactions, but sadly I'm only a small fry and card afford to rent card machines etc. Banks make it really hard to accept card payments, and although there are lots of cool apps out there, they either cost a lot of money, or you need a smart phone. Neither of which I have... Oh well! 

The great thing about having set up Etsy with some of my EYF products, is that even if you've run out of cash you can still buy everything you want by card! It might take a little longer to process but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it. It means I'll have to charge a little extra to cover the card/paypal fees that I'll get as a result, a whole 10%! Gah, I wish it didn't have to be so much, but I guess it's the same (or probably cheaper) than paying postage. So it's all good!

I think based on my rambling you can tell how excited I am. I'm off to sew up some more brooches and bags and bows and all kinds of cool stuff :)

Can't wait to see some of you there, and hopefully meet lots of other crazy yarn lovers too :)
