Fundraising

I have been working on getting my knitting up and running for years and can finally envision how it will happen. However, after much discussion with Husband this weekend, I am, quite frankly, worried about doing it via Kickstarter as was my original plan.

What happens if I overshoot the goal and don’t make it? This means I don’t get any funding. What happens if the campaign blows up and I am swamped with orders? This means disappointing my backers by not getting orders out on time, etc and that is the last thing I want.

In the end, we also discussed pushing commission knitting, but of a few pieces in a few different colors. And maybe pre-making a bunch of items and posting them to my shop. This way, they could be shipped right away. With Kickstarter, the orders won’t be mailed until the whole grouping is complete

Either way, my list consists of specific patterns of the following: fingerless gloves, baby and adult hats, a small and large owl, baby legs (legwarmers), scarves, headband/ ear cover combo, and baby blankets.

What would you do? If you planned on supporting my efforts, I would especially want to know what you think so you get your order in a timely manner.

Thanks!
Becca

  1. I would love to see some adult things since I have no baby, like throw blankets and by commissioned pieces I would think I get to choose my yarn and pattern. Good Luck Becca, let me know when it’s up and running.

    • Hi Christina, This is going to be an online store for the foreseeable future. Once I get my funding up and running, I will be posting lots of completed items on etsy. If you have something specific in mind, I will happily take commissions. Also, do you happen to be related to a Jerry Scaduto in Miami? Thanks for visiting!
