The Capital "T" in EtsyFAST

EtsyFAST stands for "Etsy Fiber Arts Street Team" ( EtsyFAST is a group of fiber artists (spinners, weavers, knitters, etc) who have online shops at, "Your place to buy & sell all things handmade," have joined together to promote our handiwork.

One way we help others find us is by tagging "EtsyFAST" when we list items for sale on Etsy (go to, do a tag search for "EtsyFAST" and prepare to be amazed!). Then, members of EtsyFAST create "Treasuries" of items that have the EtsyFAST tag. It's a large group, so it feels pretty special to be chosen for a treasury (only 12 items are allowed per treasury, and only a few hundred treasuries are allowed at a time).

Today, Simone of included my Green Apple n Black Unisex Handknit Scarf for Wicked Elphie Elphaba Fans in her EtsyFAST treasury at! Simone is an extremely talented and creative fiber artist who makes sumptious, one-of-a-kind (OOAK) items (including the incredibly crafted and photographed hat above), so I'm especially flattered that she would even consider my humble scarves for her treasury, which is only viewable through Saturday.

Simone, you're a class act! Thank you again for your kindness and for bringing your skill and energy to EtsyFAST.
