Kickstarter Updates!  I added and subtracted and multiplied and divided when I wrote the business idea and plan for creating a traveling yarn shop ( still need a better name :) ) that would bring unique yarns from small farm producers like myself to shows and markets and your LYS and your guilds and even your neighborhood.  I made sure the finished design included space and needed equipment to teach dyeing and felting and knitting.

I visited the trailer manufacturer and showed then my plans and together we designed the perfect space with lighting, ventilation, and interior structure that would be bright and welcoming.  And I researched energy efficient heating options for heating water for dyeing and lighting when needed.  Then I looked into funding.

Many small businesses use crowdfunding to start up or add to enhance their business plans.   What a great way to help a dream become a reality and receive a little something in return for your kindness.   Creating a Kickstarter Campaign is a lot of work, not just in the design of the campaign, but in sharing and updating and finding help in getting the word out.    We are 11 days in and I am beyond happy with the support I have received.   Thank you, thank you, thank you.

ith only 19 days to go, my hope is that I can go all the way and make this dream a reality.  I am cautiously optimistic as my financial goal is pretty high, but I felt it was better to include all the costs to make the end result 100% finished and ready to go on the road, rather than building it as I go .... but that is also an option.  

Yes I'm little crazy but normal would be so boring ;)

With that said, I could use your help sharing the idea with your friends, and helping me really get the word out over the next two weeks.  One thing about me you might know is that I am very determined to make things happen ... thats the Aries in me. :)  If this campaign is not fully funded, I will redesign my plan and go another route, same plan in the end, just starting over asking for help with a bit less and yes ... I my dad is a boat builder and I know how to use power tools, in fact I planned to be finishing the interior myself ... thats the control freak in me.  :) 

Enjoy this beautiful morning !  Its a dyeing day for me!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  xoxoxo
