In-Store Sales

I'm excited to share the news that I have made my knitting patterns available for Raverly In-Store purchases for Local Yarn Stores.  I have been excited to be contacted by so many LYS across the country wanting to sell my patterns in their stores.  I have had mix emotions about printing my patterns and selling them in paper form. The online way through Ravelry has been wonderful and I have not had any complaints.
Ravelry's In-Store method means a customer that comes into a store can buy yarn and my pattern. The LYS buys the pattern for the customer and can print it right in the store. The LYS and I share the sale so we both make a little money. So far it seems to be easy peasy and I've already had sales through the In-Store method. Not bad for my first day!
So for anyone that doesn't have a PayPal account and would like to buy my patterns you can now shop at any LYS that participates in Ravelry's In-Store sales and you can shop away!
In exciting news I'll be releasing a new pattern very soon! So stay tuned for that.
You can see my patterns on Ravelry here- Andee Fagan
