Saturday Spotlight

April 25, 2009

A new feature of my blog is going to be highlighting some of my favorite etsy shops.  We all deserve a little attaboy now and then and the added exposure doesn’t hurt either!

So drumroll please…. my first interview is with Stephanie from WCMercantile (her link is to the right under “etsy friends”).


So Stephanie, how did you first learn about etsy?
As a part of our endless search for new and different fibers to spin we found someone selling roving and have loved etsy ever since.

How long have you been an estian?
Since March of 2008

How long have you been practicing your craft?
For many many moons. Too many years to count, and you know what they say, “time flies when you are having fun!”

Do you participate in art shows/guilds?
We go to shows as happy spectators and have lots of fun spinning with the local guilds. Someday we might like to be a vendor at shows too.

Do you blog?
Yes. I have a blog called (but it has been taken over with my baby, Ellie. I have heard this happens to folks with their first child.)

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream 🙂 ?

Any new or upcoming additions or projects in your shop?
We are getting Earth hues dyes in, and lots of undyed items to be dyed. Also we are contributors to the Phatfiber sampler box. We submitted our dyed mohair for April and are planning things for the May and June boxes. We have had a lot of fun with these fiber folks!

Thanks so much Stephanie!!  As a customer of WCMercantile, I can fully account for their excellent customer service and knowledge of the fiber arts! Shipping is amazingly fast and in etsy terms I “heart” them very much!

Check back next week… we’ll have a variety of shops showcased each Saturday!
