I am really bummed about my shop not opening and have been trying to think of creative ways to launch the business (again) in the United States. It’s been a slow process of rebuilding and quite time consuming – starting over is really hard I have come to realise!
I have hooked in with the community, met some really great people and have made plans to host Stitch&Bitch events soon to start making some of the hats and scarves we were making whilst in London. I have passed my cards around, hooked in with some really cool volunteer groups and plan on taking off like a bomb!
One of the creative selling channels I approached is www.etsy.com. Last year, I designed and made these fantastic Spring Easy Tie-Back Scarves for myself first and then made more for women suffering from hair loss. Being that I was the first customer, if you haven’t been following for a while, I am just 16 months out from Breast Cancer treatments.
I can tell you from personal experience they are comfy, light weight, roomy with enough space to allow your head to breathe! They wash well and are durable. And they are made in 100% Cotton these fabulous bright fabrics by Amy Butler, Heather Bailey, Jennifer Paganelli to name a few.
They cost $22.00 and ALL PROCEEDS GO DIRECTLY TO SUPPORT THE PINK POM-POM PROJECT‘s crafting for cancer therapy initiative to bring crafting back and making things for victims and volunteers within Cancer communities.
And also, they don’t necessarily have to be for hairless victims – they are very cool to wear for anyone!
