I was very disappointed in the quality of this product. There was a small amount of information that was repeated several times. I have read magazine articles with more detail. The video was much shorter than I had anticipated and didn't really seem to flow well. I wish I hadn't spent the money on it especially since I am in Canada and the exchange rate adds significantly to the cost. Review by Christine (Posted on 4/30/2018)
Good with a few black marks
A very interesting, logically built class with lots of good insight. Biggest minus is the very bad sound, it seems the recording of the class was done with a mobile phone from the other side of the room. Takes a lot of concentration and high volume of speakers to understand everything. Review by Julia (Posted on 3/25/2016)
Great video but missed one BIG point
We have watched this video several times & have enjoyed Abby's input and the conciseness of her understanding of the topic....she is one of our favorites in the plethora of books and DVDs that we have bought. I would like to point out however that the topic of taxes was never addressed or mentioned, either on the video or on the PDF sheet and this is something that I think really needs to be addressed, especially if one is wanting to do this as a business. Other than this point, I would greatly recommend this to anyone that wants to at least have an understanding of what goes into a skein of yarn from a financial aspect.

A Great Check List for Yarn Sellers
Though I have been selling my hand spun yarns for a while now, I wanted to hear what Abby Franquemont had to say about the process of selling hand spun. She takes us step by step through all the considerations in pricing and selling our product.

I would HIGHLY recommend this to newcomers to selling hand spun who by enlarge tend to underprice their products. This video explains the considerations of what went into your product and how to calculate that into your pricing.

To be honest I would not pass up a video or book by this woman. I find her to be one of the most knowledgable and interesting people in the fiber arts business today. She always has insights that i can apply to what I do as she did in this video. Worth watching!!!
