Coaching and Etsy Classes

Bayne Dangerfield, owner of Soda City Sewing

Hi! I’m Bayne Dangerfield, and I own Soda City Sewing. I started this business in 2013 with a $350 sewing machine and 1 Etsy listing. 8 years later, I work full time managing Soda City Sewing, along with several employees and independent contractors. My Etsy shop has grown to almost 18,000 sales and is in the top 1% of all etsy shops! I LOVE talking business, Etsy, handmade, and helping others succeed. I’d love to help you take your idea or business to the next level!

Etsy U Online Classes

I’m excited to be a 2020 Etsy U Instructor! We are a group of top sellers, selected through an application process with Etsy. We go through trainings from Etsy directly, and then offer classes to the public, either in person or online! My first class will be held online late summer 2020, on Etsy SEO, setting up your listings to get found in search. There will be a nominal fee, and the class will be held live and recorded. To find out how you can join this class, sign up to get notified here:
