Class Info

Hey there crafty Dabbler.

We appreciate you. You, with your knitting and beading skills. You, with your painting and photography skills. You, with your clay making and sewing skills. You make things we only dream of creating, and things we wish we could buy for ourselves. And since we love your work so much, we know others would love to buy it as well. And we suspect that might be okay with you, y’know, if other people wanted to pay you for your skills, too.

That’s why we recruited an Etsy shop owner who also generates revenue selling her crafts via wholesale and consignment. Rebecca’s work has been sold in retail shops for several years now, and yours can be too after this Dabble class!

The consignment and wholesale process may seem overwhelming to start, but it’s a great way to earn additional income and exposure. Learn how to scout out shops that might carry your products and the best methods for approaching them in a professional manner. This class will also help you understand the process of creating linesheets, catalogs, order forms, packaging and price tags for your merchandise (and much more). So you can get to showing off your crafty skills to the masses in no time.
