Where to Find The Stash in 2016

Happy New Year Stashers! I hope this article finds you well and enjoying the start of a new year. 

I recently added a Events & Updates tab to the top menu. I will post all my upcoming shows, kits and updates here as well as on Instragram (muststashsheep). I hope this new app will help me share with you when and where you can score a new skein of Must Stash! 

I am excited to be vending in person at three events in 2016. The first event is the Knitting in the Hills retreat next month. I do apologize that the event is already sold out but it is worth looking into for next year as this is a top notch retreat. All attendee attend multiple classes with national teachers (this year is Julie Weisenberg, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee and Clara Parkes!!) with a onsite market place and lots of fun packed in for good measure.

The second event is the DFW Fiber Fest held in Irving, Texas. This year the festival is April 1 - 3 and is held in the Irving Convention center on Las Colinas. This is a great event in it's 11th year and has grown every year. I first attended Fiber Fest in 2012 and have enjoyed going back every year with my fest fiber friends. It's our weekend away to frolic and play!

And the last fiber event for me in 2016 will be Stitches Texas in September also held in Irving, Texas at the convention center. This will be the event's second year and I am really looking forward to seeing the market floor. 

I am participating in a few special collaboration kits this upcoming year and each of those will be in the shop links below. First, I am collaborating and with Tuft Woolens and The Freckled Whimsy to bring you a kit in early March. More information and photos will be shared closer to the release date but I think you all are going to really like what we are developing! The next collaboration is with Erin Lane in June. She is offering a club for the first time this year with some really neat fiber artist! I'm excited to see all the kits and I'm really looking forward to sharing mine with you later this year. 

I hope your new year is happy and crafty and healthy!

First Post - Under Construction

I am happy to announce that my new Shopify online store is under construction. After dealing with WooCommerce and the myriad of problems associated with that e-commerce solution for over a year I have made the plunge to a new shopping cart; Shopify.  

When I began the search for a new solution I first met with my IT professional. We tried a couple of things but WC found new ways to complicate the online buying experience so it was time to just wash my hands and look elsewhere. I decided to start from what has always worked well for me; Shipstation. They have many Partners and so I educated myself on many of them before deciding on Shopify. 

I signed up for the Trial account on Tuesday and paid for an account on Wednesday because I am so pleased with how this web store functions! It is very intuitive and the support is responsive (I called and had my questions answered in under 5 minutes). 

I hope to add products to the shop over this next week but I ask that you bear with me as I get the shop up to snuff.
