I think that would be a nice feature if we had a way to click on anyone's post from Google+ and it would take us to their Artyah shop.
 



How would you go about linking your shop name when you put something on?

Barb, I know that some sellers were complaining last year that we didn't have enough supplies offered on ArtYah, so I would think it a good idea to list fabric here.  Of course, with our current lack of internet visibility, it might be awhile before anything sells, but a few fellow sellers might purchase.  I sew as well as crochet, but I'm always focused on crocheting nowadays since that's my bread and butter, and (like so many others) have lots of fabric myself I need to do something with. (:

I would recommend, after listing a good amount of new items, to submit your ArtYah shop to Google to encourage them to crawl it.  I make no promises, but it's free and can't hurt to increase overall visibility on-line. I do this every few months.

The link to submit is: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/submit-url?continue=/addurl

It's actually a great idea for all of us to do this every now and then.

Crochet used to be my bread and butter also but I developed osteo arthritis in my hands and can't do it anymore.
How do I go about submitting my shop to google?

It specifically states for a new url: Google adds new sites to our index, and updates existing ones, every time we crawl the web. If you have a new URL, tell us about it here..."

Not sure if they bother to look at/consider submissions of the same old urls. Thanks for sharing though.

This is how I do it. My pictures don't always show up as large pics when I post them to Google+ but it is the same process either way.
Pick a listing you want to put on Google+ Go up to the top where the listing https is and left click while dragging the entire listing description listing ( it will be blued) Then right click copy and then go to google plus and right click to paste and it should show your picture and your listing so people can find it in your Artyah shop. Let me know if it works for you. 😉

I bought a new machine about 1 yr ago. I stayed with Brother, though I had considered and researched Singer. From my understanding they are not like they used to be. The quality is not the same. I was very tempted and also considered a couple of the high-end machines, Janome, Husqvarna Viking. I think I looked at Bernina too. In the end, I decided that though I love sewing, I do so many other techniques and don't sew everyday. It would be a waste to invest in one of those. I have a 15+ yo Brother, so I kept it and bought another one and upgraded to an electronic model, Brother 130-Stitch Sewing and Quilting Machine, SQ9185. I like it because I want to do more machine quilting, and it can monogram small letters, so I can make words.

Walmart was selling them for $162 and have now gone up to $192. But I found mine on eBay, NIB, for $125 from a pawn shop owner in Louisiana. He showed pics of all sides of the sealed box. I asked him questions and he assured me also that it had never been used or even opened. So I got a great deal and this brand and model is all that I need.

You know at one time Barbara Mathews, Handmade Variety Shop, was selling a sewing machine(s) and Baby Lock machine. Don't know if she still is. She posted in this thread. It's Barb.

So the Baby Lock is a serger and a sewing machine? It's good for people who do not want 2 separate machines?
