Hello and welcome to the new and improved Mama & Fred website!
So it has been a busy few months to say the least! My little shop has had a rebrand as you may have noticed. My little yarn baby is no more, which is a little sad, but hopefully you will all like the new Mama & Fred logo and branding.
My products are still just as lovely as before (although hopefully always improving!) but now they are now marketed and packaged a little differently. I made the decision to make the change as I felt I had outgrown the My Little Yarn Baby name, Mama & Fred feels a bit more me and more in the direction I want to go, more as a real business and not just a hobby that I am tinkering with. I also wanted to start selling on Etsy again, and there was a lady previously who wasn’t very happy with me using my name on there as she felt it was too similar to hers (it wasn’t and we didn’t sell anything remotely similar, but I’m putting that behind me and moving on!!)
So, I have a nice shiny new Etsy store which is filling up nicely – do take a peek! Mamaandfred.etsy.com The most popular items at the moment are my range of spring bonnets – which are now available in cotton for the warmer summer months…. If it ever stops raining!
I have also got my new website set up (as I needed a new domain name after my name change). This is filling up a little more slowly as I am not the most techy person and things take a bit longer for me to sort out on it than they do in Etsy! I think it’s looking pretty nice now though, and I am adding in my products a little bit every day. I plan to run more promotions and deals through my website than Etsy, so please do sign up to my mailing list, this will keep you up to date with all my latest product releases and upcoming promotions. You also get 20% off your first order just for signing up! Win win!
I have lots and lots of plans going forward for the rest of 2017. I have a few more new lines that I want to introduce for summer (think baby rompers and more headwear) and then for Autumn Winter (new exciting baby booties) and even as far out as Spring 2018…… but I will be keeping those a secret for now.
I am incredibly excited about them all though, and only wish I had more hours in the day for creating my tiny garments!
So I shall be posting and keeping in touch with you all. I am hoping to restart my makers showcase posts soon and eventually my how to craft posts. However, we are (finally) very close to moving house so those may stay on the back burner until that is all sorted! As I said, it has all been very busy lately!!
Anyway, take care, don’t forget to subscribe to my mailing list and let me know if you have any feedback regarding my etsy store, the website or anything else you have an opinion on! I am always grateful for a bit of help!
