HTTPS Secure Server Migration

In this age of cyber hacking and concerns about security, I have decided to move all of this website to a secure server – Https not http. Although no personal financial information is collected at this site and I provide information only, you can’t be too careful. This has been done now. You will see that the top address bar now takes you to https://www.allfiberarts.com

However, there is still much work to be done at my end, to convert all of the pages to the https SSL protocol. This involves mostly changing all of the images and links within the site, so they don’t still pass information from the older http site. While this migration is taking place, you may still see some warning signals on your browser. Please don’t be alarmed by this, as it will take me several weeks to find and replace the offending links on several hundred pages.

I have had to remove the link to the old Delphi Forum, as this was an unsecure link.
Some of my older content will have to be removed as some pages may be too difficult to update.

Please note, that I do run advertising on this website, (such as: Google, Amazon, EBay, Interweave Press) as it offsets my costs of keeping this website alive. The ad networks will have cookies associated with the ads. These cookies allow the ad networks to determine which ads may be relevant to you, so that they can serve appropriate ads to your browser. I try not to allow annoying popup or full page ads – as I can’t stand them either.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

Etsy

I have recently become more active in promoting my hand crafted products and am using the online shops of Etsy and Folksy.

I have had Etsy and Folksy shops for some time now, but didn’t have a lot of products displayed on them, partly because I have also been working at a ‘real job’ so haven’t had a lot of time to devote to crafting. And also I didn’t realize that the number of items listed in your shop affects how many visitors you get.

I thought I would do a bit of research on how to succeed with Etsy/Folksy so did some reading. The advice that most sellers tell you is that you need to have a full shop. When you think about it, no one likes to go to a store where the shelves are empty. You turn around and walk back out rather than staying to browse.

The same principle applies to online shopping.  So how many items do you need to set up a successful Etsy shop? The magic number from what I have analyzed is about 100 items.  Activity starts to pick up at around 50 items.

For some time I had around 20-30 items listed in my shops, and had steady trickles of sales. Once I realized that more product is needed, I got busy and bumped up my work to about 50. I quickly noticed that I was getting more visitors, more enquiries and more sales. I am working my way up to the 100 item goal now.

The other important point is to not spread your products over too many categories until you have enough of each type of item to do so. When you set up your listings and organize them into Sections (Etsy)  or Collections (Folksy) try to have enough items to fill up the page. If you haven’t yet made enough products then combine items into related Sections until you create more products.

Take good quality photos and size them correctly. Take photos in natural light or near a window. Take more than one photo of your product from different angles so that visitors can get a good idea of what you are selling.

The recommended pixel size for images for Etsy is 800 – 1000 pixels wide. Try to make the first image in your listing square, so that it displays correctly in thumbnails and your product doesn’t get cropped. The recommended image size changes from time to time, so please check the current guidelines.

Crafts online

I have been selling my handwoven items for some time now online. I have a website where I display some of my products and this continues to be an effective method of selling for me.

I realize that as crafters/weavers/handspinners, many of us are looking for alternate ways to sell our work, in addition to selling at craft fairs. The internet is a good way to do this and recently there have become more avenues to promote your work. Here are a few things that I have discovered.

Website

Firstly, start with a good website that is hosted on a reliable server. Purchase your own domain name. The cost of domain registration has come down in price so that it can be quite affordable.
Build a good quality website. Have a clear, easy to navigate menu system so that users can find their way around your website. Use good quality photos of your work.
Set up a Paypal account so that it is easy for the user to order your items and to pay you. Note that Paypal has a standard return policy so allow for this. I make it a rule not to spend my Paypal earnings until I am sure that the customer is satisfied and isn’t going to return the item.

hand spun yarn

In order for your website to be found, make the website search engine friendly. Use appropriate keywords on each page that describe what the page is about. If you are featuring knitted socks, then use keywords that describe the socks: knit socks, hand knit socks, knitted socks, wool socks, etc.
Also use text to describe the socks, what they are made of, what makes them special.
Use “alt” tags on all images so that search engines can understand what your image is. This will make the images more search engine friendly and will allow them to show up on Google image listings.

Also to help your website get noticed and show up in Google it is a good idea to also promote your work on other websites.

Facebook
Facebook now has an option to set up a Page for your business. You will first need to set up a personal Facebook account. Once you do this there will be an option to Create Page.
As an example, I have set up a Facebook Page for my Paivatar Yarn business. I use this to showcase my products and what I am making. I post photos of my work as I dye yarns, card, spin, felt and whatever I happen to be working on.
I also post links to the other website sales outlets that I use – Folksy and Etsy.
Once you have your Facebook Page set up there is an option to link it to your Twitter account, so that when you add a post to your FB Page, a Twitter is sent automatically to your Twitter followers.

Etsy

Etsy.com is an online marketplace where crafters can post their items for sale. Etsy charges a fee of $.20 per item and the item is listed for 4 months. If you have a successful sale Etsy charges an additional fee of 3.5% of the sale price.
If you join Etsy it is helpful to also become part of a team that can support you and help to promote your products. In return you are expected to also help other team members. Find out what the team rules are and follow them.
Paivatar Yarns on Etsy
I have some of my work listed on Etsy.

Folksy
Folksy.com is similar to Etsy but is the UK version. In order to take part you have to be a crafts person who is living in the UK.
Paivatar on Folksy
Since I now live in the UK I am concentrating more of my efforts on the UK version of Etsy – supporting local crafts.
Folksy fees are slightly higher – they charge £.20 to list an item and a 6% fee on a successful sale. However they have an annual payment option of £30 per year, for unlimited number of items. Depending on what type of crafts you produce, this could be a money saving option.
Folksy also has a member forum. I have found them to be very friendly and helpful in supporting each other. So be sure to get involved.

When you post your craft items on these or similar websites, be aware that there is a lot of competition as many crafters are actively involved. In order to be effective it is best to post a new item each day or every few days as new items are added on a continual basis.

The more exposure that you are able to get for your website, the more successful you will be. There are some other avenues to help you to achieve this.

Pinterest
Pinterest.com is an online bulletin board that allows you to ‘Pin’ anything that is of interest to you. It is much like a giant scrapbook or a pin board where you can add your pictures. When Pinterest first started you had to be invited to join. Recently they have opened it up so that anyone can now become a member and start pinning.
When you come across a photo or image online that you like, you can ‘Pin’ it to add to your own Pin Board. The image appears on your Board with a direct link back to the original website. Other Pinterest members can view your boards and if they also like the item they can ‘repin’ it to their own board. The photo link goes back to the original owner’s website.
Allfiberarts on Pinterest
I have a Pinterest account where I pin photos of things that I have liked and also use it to list some of my own work as well. I browse through other members listings and repin or Follow ones that I find interesting.

Twitter
I am sure that everyone has heard of Twitter. The idea is that you can send short Tweets to your friends – about your latest thoughts, ideas or cool things you have come across.
I must admit I haven’t quite mastered the art of tweeting and twittering so I let software tools do it for me. For example, when I post a new article to this All Fiber Arts website, the WordPress software that I use, automatically sends it to my Twitter account to forward it on to my Twitter subscribers.
My Facebook Page has the same feature turned on, so when I post to FB, it tweets it on for me.

Craftjuice
Craftjuice.com is an interesting website that I discovered recently. It is designed to promote handmade crafts. The Crafts are divided into several categories.
General crafts, Paper crafts, Beads, Pottery, Fabric, Knitting, Crochet, Metalwork.
You have to complete an application form with links to your website and products that you have for sale. It can take a few days to get accepted.
Once you have been accepted complete a short Profile page. To add a new craft item, Click on Submit a New Craft Item.
Provide a url link to your website, or to Etsy, Folksy or wherever you have this product listed for sale.
Add a photo and a short description of the item.
When you have submitted this, the item will appear in the Upcoming Crafts section of the website.
Craftjuice members are allowed to vote on the items. Once you have 5 votes, the item moves into the Popular Items section of the website.
The item then is also tweeted to Craftjuice Twitter subscribers. And Craftjuice sends out a monthly newsletter to its subscribers listing items with the top votes. Craftjuice currently has over 8000 followers so it’s a great promotional tool!

Please be sure to acknowledge others work and if you like it, Like it, Share it, Vote for it, Pin it. Pass the good karma on.

Craft Shows: aa042999

If you weave, eventually you will want to sell some of your work. A craft show is a good way to display your work and perhaps be recompensed for some of your endeavours. In deciding to take the next step of entering a craft show, one of the first things you will need to do, is choose which ones to enter. Perhaps your local guild has annual shows for members. Or your community may offer special craft shows during the Christmas or summer seasons.

Once you have selected a show to enter and have paid your admission fees, you will need to prepare all of your products and supplies. Allow yourself plenty of time to get ready, Not only will you have to weave and carefully finish your handwovens but you will have to take care of a lot of other details and paperwork. All of your handwoven articles will have to be properly labelled and priced. I have written previous articles about labelling your work, and pricing products.

When you receive confirmation of your booth, the organizers will let you know the booth size and if any tables or chairs will be provided. You will need this information to plan your display and shelving requirements. If tables are provided, it’s a good idea to have a few large tablecloths to cover the tables, as you don’t know what they will look like until you arrive.

A good looking display is important for selling your products. Purchase some shelving or have someone make some for you that is easily portable and can be adapted to fit a variety of floor layouts.
Ask the organizers if electrical power is available. You might want to have some special lighting to display your work. Make sure that you have plenty of brochures, price lists and business cards printed. Depending on the type of show that you are attending, many people don’t make actual purchases at your booth, but do take brochures and place orders at a later time. It would be disappointing to lose a potential customer because you have run out of promotional materials.

Check with your local government agencies to see if you need to register for provincial, federal or state tax licensing or if you require a business license to sell your work in a particular city. Keep accurate records. Take an inventory listing of all of your products as you are pricing them, so that you know exactly what stock you have on hand. Use a numbered coding system for each product, so that you can quickly write down the code on the invoice as it is sold. This will help you track what items sold. You can use this information for planning for future shows to determine which products were most popular.

Have plenty of invoice/sales books with you to record all the sales you are going to make. Take calculators, lots of pens, paper, scotch tape and other stationery supplies, as well as bags for packaging your customer sales. Your goods will need to be packaged in boxes that will be suitable for shipping and carrying to the booth. I use the large plastic tubs for many of my products as they are reusable and can be neatly stacked or packed away under tables. You might also have to purchase a car-top carrier, in order to fit all of your products.

Try to arrive at the show fairly early to set up your booth. Use this time before the actual show opens, to arrange an attractive display. Be prepared that you might have forgotten something and might have to take a quick trip to purchase additional supplies.

Hopefully, you will have brought along a friend that can help you at the show and allow you to take a few breaks as well. Bring along a water bottle with fresh water, to sip and refresh yourself during the quieter moments. Enjoy yourself and be proud of all your accomplishments and others will appreciate your work too. Good luck!

Product Labelling: aa052298

An important and not to be overlooked part of getting your handwovens ready for sale is the labeling of your products. Hang tags can be used for some articles, others require that the information be securely sewn onto the product.

If you are needing small quantities of labels, blank business cards can be purchased from a stationery store and designed on your computer and printed on your printer. If you need larger quantities or wish a more professional look, have them done by a printer. While you are having your business cards printed, have the hang tags done as well. Do check the proof carefully, before approving the final printing.

I live in Canada, but export some products to the U.S. I contacted the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and obtained the Rules and Regulations for labeling of textile products. If you are exporting to other countries, you will have to contact the appropriate agency to determine specific labeling requirements. The label must include the name of the manufacturer, where the product was made, the fiber content, in % by weight, and full washing and care instructions.

For clothing, the label must be attached in the neck of the garment. For other textile products, the label has to be attached to a conspicuous place. If you have specific questions regarding how to label your product, contact the Federal Trade Commission.

The Federal Trade Commission works for consumer protection and a competitive marketplace and has guidelines and information about textile, wool and fur matters.

Pricing Handwovens

Even though you may not be a weaver by profession at some point someone will ask if you are willing to sell your work. How much do you charge? How do you determine a reasonable price that will cover your costs and hopefully give you a bit of profit for your effort as well?

There are a number of points to consider:
supplies – the cost of your materials,
your time – both warping, weaving and finishing,
and the market price – what the customer is willing to pay.
Material cost:
There are a number of weave drafting software programs that will assist you in estimating your material costs. You enter the data: warp and weft cost per lb., sett, length and width of project, number of items, etc. and the total project cost is calculated for you.

Because so much of your time is spent warping the loom and materials lost to loom waste, it is more economical to make more than one item at a time. For this example, I will do the calculations for 3 mohair blanket throws.

  • Mohair cost per lb: $ 40.00
  • Yards per lb: 2240 y.p.p.
  • Sett: 6 e.p.i
  • P.P.I: 6 p.p.i.
  • Project width: 45 in.
  • Total length including loom waste: 12 yd.
  • Loom waste: 27 in.
  • Number of finished items: 3

For pricing purposes, in the material cost per lb. I have used the average Retail cost of the yarn. Even though I may be fortunate and have found material on sale or am able to purchase a large quantity at wholesale prices, for pricing products, it is wise to use the highest price I might have to pay for materials. Why? If I get a repeat order and have run out of the material I got on sale, and have to reorder at a higher price, I may not be able to meet the order.

Warp Cost:

  • Width x e.p.i. = 45 x 6 = 270 ends
  • No ends x Total length = 270 x 12 yds = 3240 yd.
  • Total yds/y.p.p. = 3240/2240 = 1.45 lb.
  • Total lb. x Cost per lb. = 1.45 x $ 40 = $ 58.00

Weft Cost:

  • Project width x p.p.i = 45 x 6 = 270 in.
  • Total length x 36 = 12 x 36 = 432 in.
  • Total length – loom waste = 432 – 27 = 405
  • (270 x 405)/36 = 109350 in./36 = 3038 yds.
  • Total yds/ ypp = 3038/2240 = 1.36 lb.
  • Total lb. x Cost per lb. = 1.36 x $40 = $ 55.00
  • Warp cost + Weft Cost = $ 58 + $ 55 = $ 113.00
  • Material Cost per Item:
    Total Cost/ No. of Items = $ 113/3 = $ 38.00

For your accounting records, you will have to recalculate this to obtain the actual cost of this project using the price you paid for your materials. The difference between the 2 “costs” is your profit on materials.
Labour cost:
Now that you know your material cost, you have to determine what your labour is worth. Is weaving your passion and you would happily work for free? Or do you want to make an income? When you calculate this, please remember that there are weavers who do this for a living. If you are willing to work for free, then others have to compete with lower prices and you may be doing them a disservice. Also, if you are successful and have to hire others, what will you have to pay someone else to weave for you? For illustration purposes, I will use a labour cost of $ 10.00 per hour.

Warping time:
Estimate how long it takes you to warp a loom and add this to your calculation.
Weaving time:
What is your average time to weave a certaing length of fabric? Time yourself over several projects. If you have put on a blanket warp as in this example, record your start and finish times as you are working on the project. Using these records will help you to determine what your average weaving speed is and also identify if your speed is improving. For this calculation, I will use an estimate of 1 ft. per hour.

Finishing:
It is important to not forget that it takes time to finish your projects. How long does it take to wash, full, brush and finish the ends of your blankets?

  • Warp time: 5 hr. x $ 10 = $ 50.00
  • Weave time: 10 yd = 30 ft.
  • 30 hr. x $ 10 = $ 300.00

3 blankets x 2 hr./blanket = 6 hr.
6 hr. x $ 10 = $ 60.00
Total Cost:

  • Material: $ 115.00
  • Warp time: $ 50.00
  • Weaving time: $ 300.00
  • Finishing: $ 60.00
  • Total: $ 525.00
  • Total Price per Blanket: $ 525/3 = $ 175.00

So now you have determined that you should charge at least $ 175.00 for your blankets. The other important factor to consider is what price your market will bear. Will your customers be willing to pay $ 175 for your blankets? Are you able to charge more because your blankets are of exceptional quality? Do you have a ready supply of materials that you can obtain at a very low cost and are able to drop your selling price?

If you sell wholesale to retail stores or on consignment, the stores will also mark-up your products, so the final selling price will almost double. If you are able to sell a larger quantity, will the increased sales make up your profit margin so that you are able to drop your wholesale prices?

There are a lot of factors to consider when pricing. If you have questions or comments, join us in the forum for an ongoing discussion on pricing and marketing of our products.
