I just wanted to respond to the critique by saying thank you for totally going with the flow as far as my selling wool as my shop product…..

The Set Up Shop class was amazing, your blog posts have always been totally relevant (if not totally life changing), but yet I always felt like my products certainly were different. I kind of thought you might balk at the thought of selling wool, but you didn’t – you just did an amazing job with the critique as you do with everything else and I truly appreciate it.

I honestly would not be selling wool this way if there were not a market for it, but everyday I still think about how weird it is. Great critiques, I have already started implementing many of them.
