I am getting so much done with Ribbons & Stitches, most of the videos are up, and there are a few more than I had anticipated. I am glad I have more than I thought I would though because it has just given me a good amount of content to start with. I am not sure how I am going to continue to do video once I no longer have access to the Elon equipment, so having more videos than I bargained for is fine with me, I may even delay posting one or two just so I have things to post.
I have also been tweeting a lot from @RibbonsStitches, every time I am doing something I take a picture and tweet it. I am however struggling with finding an appropriate background picture. I know I want it to be a texture but as of yet I have not taken the right picture for it. I have tried out a lot of different options and I haven’t found the right one yet.
On a different note I have decided to send out an invitation (pictured) to about 50 people inviting them to join Ribbons & Stitches. I think this is going to help it to get out there a little but, and hopefully travel by word of mouth to start. Now that I have done all of this work it would be nice if people actually went to the site. I may tweak this invitation further, but I am really liking the old-style font along with the Helvetica Neue, it is how the fonts are on the website.
I am also toying with the idea of making an Etsy Store, because that will also help get the word out there, and again I think it is a good place to start. I do not have a ton of things to sell, but I think I will start with around five, and once I have time to make things I will. Hopefully I will be able to have a few extra things up there by the exhibition. I am really looking forward to IMX, I think that my project is coming out really well and it is going to be fun to see it all finished!
