Welcome to our blog. My name is Kisa Libby and I am a 32 year old single mother of two boys. Among the many hats I wear, I am an obsessive knitter, Navy Veteran, loving daughter, sister and hopefully a true friend. I am also the part owner of an Etsy shop called the Mommy Mercantile where I hope to sell knitting patterns I've designed, original knitted gifts and knitted wearables. My partner and dear friend is Amber Williams, who is also a single mother and obsessive crafter. Her area of expertise includes both sewing and crocheting and together we hope to show case our creations and perhaps even make a little profit.
This blog will be an opportunity for us to memorialize our courageous business venture and share the experience with others. I have learned much from other blogs and am excited to have the opportunity to give back and share what I have learned with others. In addition to sharing our experience as first time web business owners Amber and I will also use the blog forum to share our reviews about yarns we like or dislike, designers that inspire us and fabrics that could push us into debt faster than shoes or purses combined. We will also talk about our positive or negative experiences with vendors and online supply stores. In addition we hope to use this blog as a way to share bits and pieces of our lives with others who share our interests and passions.
Please feel free to share with us any ideas or requests. Feed back about our creations will also be appreciated. In the future I hope to include tutorials and free patterns as well. We have high hopes for our little business and as our logo states...”it takes a village.”
