My First Newsletter

I spent some time today building my first newsletter issue from one of the templates at ConvertKit. It didn't turn out like what I had in mind, but got the job done. I'm sure I'll learn as I go.

For this first newsletter, I wanted to offer a discount to one of my favorite patterns: "Under the Harvest Noon." Hopefully it will entice folks to join my email list. 


Today, or at least until I have to hop on a virtual safety committee meeting for work, I will be working on a video tutorial on the ladder stitch.

Marketing and Making Dolls

As the countdown to retirement begins, I look forward to spending my time sharing the tricks of the trade, freebies, offering virtual and in-person dollmaking classes. 

I've invested in an online course to learn what I need to do to make these things happen. I'll be using an email service provider (ConvertKit) to build my email subscriber list, and I've just sent my first freebie to enable people to join my list. 

Please drop by my opt in and receive a free PDF on the how-tos and advantages of using freezer paper while sewing dolls.

This tutorial available here on my blog, but I thought it might be a good test to if this list-thing actually works.
