Julz Craft Supplies & julzcraftsupplies & julzweaving – changes to my ebay accounts

Standard

scarfcopysI have been doing a bit of re-organisation during the last month or so, and changing round my ebay listings –

so thought I’d let you know what changes I have made, as they might be a bit confusing for my customers – and I don’t want to lose you!

When I started this blog several years ago, it was actually called Julz Spinning and Weaving Club, and was really just a place for my customers to find out a bit more about what I stocked.  The blog changed radically from January of this year, when I did the online blogging101 course and I learnt how to use the range of possibilities that blogging can give you!  The background used to be a tiled version of the pink woven scarf I made ages ago – smile – but a lot of people on the course thought it was a bit fussy as a background, so I changed to the current look!

You might not have noticed, that I have just subtly changed the header – it used to say Julz Crafts and was a bit clunky!

So from now on, its Julz Craft Supplies – a name I have always used for my etsy account – this is the banner I am using for my shop on etsy – if you click on the banner it will take you there.

I had a long standing business account on ebay (called 85solway), but hadn’t used it for a while, so I opened a new account last year, which I called  julzweaving – a bit more relevant for what I intended to sell!

Things have gone really well on julzweaving – but there was a problem – it was a private account – which meant that I had 20 free listings a month – great! – but at the same time – it was treated as a new account and I was only allowed to list  a set amount of items a month!

This has been getting more and more of a nuisance, and you might have noticed that I have had to constantly add or subtract the number of say, cones of warping yarns I have to sell, when I actually have 20, I’ve only been able to list 4!  They gave me the maximum amount of items allowed on a private account – BUT  I have been juggling with it for months now!

I was just about to change julzweaving into a business account, so I could list more items, when I found out that it was easy to change the name of my old account – 85solway – to julzcraftsupplies!  It literally took me 2 minutes – I’ve had that account since 2004 and I’d never realised I could change the name!

SO – I AM SLOWLY MOVING THE LISTINGS

FROM JULZWEAVING TO JULZCRAFTSUPPLIES!

(Clicking on the names of the accounts will take you to them)

As the listings expire on julzweaving, I will be moving them over to julzcraftsupplies – which allows me to list as many items as I want and the full amount of stock I have of each!  (Many of these are also available in the etsy shop)

I will not be closing the julzweaving account, and I’m sure I’ll be using my free listings there – maybe for auction listings so you can get a bargain – maybe for just personal items I want to sell – but just at the moment, both sites are stocking my craft supplies – and I’m sorry if I am confusing my buyers – but unless I mention it on the actual listings – there is no way on ebay itself, to let you know that they have moved!

COMING SOON – CHRISTMAS FABRICS FOR YOU TO

MAKE XMAS STOCKINGS, GIFTS ETC – AND …..

On julzcraftsupplies – I have re-stocked with both standard and mini hand carders for spinners and also got a new lot of carding cloth in for those of you who would like to make your own BLENDING BOARD.  Instructions are given on the listing – and this time I have not only 13″ lengths, but also 18″ lengths, which give you more scope for producing interesting rolags.

Vinay Pathak learnt art of weaving for ‘Gour Hari Dastaan’

Standard

vinay-pathak-759Is this about weaving – not really – but it struck me as a nice little filler whilst I’m busy reorganising myself, the blog, and Julz Craft Supplies – smile

For regular ebayers, please note that I am changing around my ebay accounts.  I have been selling most of the craft supplies on my JULZWEAVING ACCOUNT, which has been really busy – BUT – it is a private sellers account and I have a limit on the number of items I can sell, and have had to keep juggling the numbers every month.

My long standing Business account with ebay was called 85solway, and I didn’t realise I could change the name, so I have been selling, fabric, giftware and odds and ends there.  HOWEVER I did a bit of research and it took me only two minutes to change the name to JULZCRAFTSUPPLIES!  

So, I am gradually moving items over there, where I can list as much as I want – I just have to pay for the listings, instead of getting most of them free!  I have been wondering whether to make another major change and  open an ebay shop – but I think I’ll take it one step at a time!

Back to the subject of this blog – hope my Indian readers appreciate this – hope the film is good – smile…..

The film, which also features actors Konkona Sen Sharma, Ranvir Shorey and Tanisshtha Chatterjee, will release on August 14 — a day before the country’s Independence Day.

Actor Vinay Pathak was made to learn the art of weaving for his role in “Gour Hari Dastaan: The Freedom File”.

As part of his preparation for the film, director Ananth Mahadevan made the actor learn how to weave cloth. And Vinay learnt it from Oriya freedom fighter Gour Hari Das, on whose life story the film is based.

Das had learnt the art during the country’s freedom struggle. “I learnt the art of weaving during my movie filming for ‘Gour Hari Dastaan’. I had never thought that Ananth will make me weave as a part of role preparation,” Vinay said in a statement. “Special ‘charkhas’ from Sabarmati were called for this. I was more surprised on the teacher as it was none other than Das-ji. He learnt this art during the time of the independence struggle. He really showed patience and taught me this well,” added the actor. The film, which also features actors Konkona Sen Sharma, Ranvir Shorey and Tanisshtha Chatterjee, will release on August 14 — a day before the country’s Independence Day.
