What Kind of Studio?

(Note, this is a copy of the first entry to serve as quick reference for now. This page will be updated as time goes on.)

Chances are, if you are here right now, you know me. You know me and are wondering what the heck dinosaurs have to do with my fiber obsession. The truth? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

I just happen to be tripping over toy dinosaurs in my apartment constantly, because I have a four year-old son. He has been obsessed with dinos for half of his short little life. Plus, it’s fun. Little neon dinosaurs are fun, and they will be even more fun when I start dressing them up like sheep.

Now that we have established why you are here, it is time to tackle why I am. It’s simple: I am starting a business. I am going to sell yarn and roving and perhaps any number of other things. Patterns maybe. Certain services. There’s one catch though. Have you caught on to my tense yet? I’ll give you a hint: my tense communicates intention. It means that I will start a business, but I have not actually done so yes.

I mean, I have a name and an idea and most of a business model, but there are a few things I am sorely lacking: a degree, experience, an extrovert’s nature, a tax ID. You lucky folks are here to watch me learn, fail, panic, and eventually gain each and every one of the aforementioned and more. Then, on July 1st, 2011, I will officially be open for business.

It’s going to be an adventure.

  1. You do NOT need a degree or experience nor even to be an extrovert to own your own business. You just have to have the DREAM! Have you hooked up with the small business center at Washburn or gone to any of the meetings/classes they have for small businesses at the library? I think they can help lots with the “business” end – taxes and bookkeeping and such. GOOD LUCK! I’m sure you will do quite well. Your first ever “Black Friday” sale says you are well on your way!
