Ever since I started wholesaling,  we've run it as a little family business. Joe takes the orders, I package them up, and someone meanders to the post office to get my patterns in the hands of yarn shop owners.  But, since our family has grown, I feel it's time to pass this duty off to someone else.

As of this week, you can now find all of my patterns available for wholesale via Deep South Fibers.  Deep South Fibers offers a very user-friendly system for yarn shop owners looking to place orders.

 I have heard nothing but good things from the LYS owners I have talked to who have experience ordering with DSF and I'm looking forward to working with them!

The best thing is that this means less time invoicing/packaging/shipping around here and more time with the baby and working on new patterns.  I am more than willing to give up a little administrative work in order to spend more time on the creative.

All New Tabs

If you happened to stop by the blog yesterday, you may have noticed a new addition.  Although they are a work in progress (and more will be added in efforts to clean up and re-do the blog a bit), I'm happy to say that I now have a couple of tabs above my blog posts.  One of these tabs has a comprehensive list of all the yarn shops that carry French Press Knits patterns.

Pop over to see if there are any yarn shops around you.  If not, you can always let your local yarn shop owner know that they can contact me at wholesale [at!] frenchpressknits.com for more information (and to be added to the growing list).

Also, I am looking for suggestions on places to go for a blog spruce-up.  Anyone out there have any experience with anyone they loved working with?  I'd love some recommendations, throw them up in the comments section.
