Welcome @sewdiverse , you just go to the item you want to post and copy the URL on the top and then paste it on the thread “what have you listed today” and you will see your item and picture appear. Hope I have explained this correctly, off to see your shop. :slight_smile: Everyone is lovely here and very friendly and helpful :slight_smile:

Oh wow I’ve just looked at your work it’s brilliant…I do applique pictures and cushions from children’s drawings it’s such a fun unique thing to do.

hi SewDiverse, i’m recently new here too, I tweet everything I list and also Pinterest and just join in generally here on the forums. Join in the alphabet game, it’s a bit of fun and a way of showing your lovely creations.
If someone for example posts an item beginning with the letter “A” then you would reply with … eg… “B for bird cushion” … and we all find that good fun and it gets your shop viewings. Then there is rainbow game another fun way of promoting your creations, just list an item from your shop with a colour from the rainbow, very very simple, fun and again a good way to get people viewing your shop.
Also there is a thread to favourite an item from the shop above, pop over to that thread and you favourite an item from the last person, so then your shop will be next to get a favourite (which means whoever is next has to view your shop to choose a favourite)
I do hope I have explained this okay?? and it has been a help for you. :slight_smile:

Thank you. I genuinely love making every piece. Working with kids drawings is about as challenging and rewarding as it gets.
