Featured Seller!

This weeks featured seller is Natalie from Folksy shop Lissi

What is your name/business name?
Hi my name is Natalie and I am the founder of Lissi, Naturally Dyed Products.

What is your craft?
I create silk fashion accessories and greetings cards by using natural dying techniques to colour cloth and then finish everything off by hand or machine stitch.

How long have you been crafting for?
I have only been making my products since June this year, but the concept and ideas generated from using the techniques to produce my final major project for my degree, and I really enjoyed dying and making items that were all original so found a way to carry on!

What is your most favourite thing about your craft?
I love that you can never dye anything exactly the same twice! Each time it’s a guessing game of how things will turn out.

And the least favourite?
The fact that I still only own one large jam pan and can only do one dye pot at a time!

Where do you sell your work?
I have the most products available in my Folksy shop, but I am also testing the waters with a few products on other sites such as Misi and Joolia.

Anything else you'd like to tell us?
I have recently added more pictures of dye samples, products, and information to my website http://lissionline.jimdo.com

Thanks to Natalie for answering my questions and I hope you'll all check out her lovely shop.
