Things seem to be picking up on Etsy. I have sold 2 large items this month. One is a custom made Tree Skirt, Embroidered in Holiday Carousel Elephants. The other is the Holiday Carousel block set of 9. I sell embroidered quilt blocks, & quilt tops.

Hi all. New to AQS and this group. I opened an etsy shop in April 2014 called Southern Patchwork. So far I've had a lot of views of my shop and my items but no sales. I'm hoping it'll improve as I add more items, I started with just a handful. Can't wait to check out your shops. I'll add them to my favs.

I have been selling on Etsy since 2009 and have sold 94 items - not all quilted.  It seems to go in streaks.  Haven't sold anything since Jan but this is slow time of year on Etsy, Ebay and such.  The direct payment option has helped as some people don't like Paypal.   My shop is Ettarose55.  Going to check out everyone's shops.  Have a great day.

It is very slow here!  The first quarter of the year was really good for me.  It's been slowed down for the last 3 months.  I hope it picks up for the holiday season.

I have not been doing anything on either Etsy nor Ebay! Usually this time of the year I am going crazy, and backed up with order off Ebay. Have only been active on Etsy about 3 months so it is hard to tell what is going on there. But ebay is dead. Sales for every one is down. Anyone doing anything out there?

I have not sold any quilts on Etsy, but I sell many custom embroidered quilt labels.

Hello Sharon.  I've been to your shop before, but took another visit this morning.  I really like your quilts and patterns.  Everything is fun and current.  Some of your photos are a little dark, maybe it would help if you did some outdoor photography. Mine always seem to look a little better outside.  Also, I use the free picmonkey photo editor.  Have you tried it?  It's really great.  Do you have a blog, or a Facebook page where you promote your business.  That helps, too.

I'm giving everyone the link to my shop.

I would love feedback on your thoughts.  I have sold a few tops but would love to sell more!  Any feedback is appreciated!

Hi Victoria,

I too recently joined this group.  I love your shop.  You have some beautiful quilts.  I added you to my circle.  Best wishes.  Nancy
