Sketch, source, sew...are we forgetting something? Oh yeah, SELL! Thanks to Etsy Wholesale, the toughest part of becoming the next big thing just got a little easier.

Starting today, designers everywhere will have the opportunity to digitally pitch their lines to a panel that includes dream retailers like — drumroll, please — Nordstrom, The Land of Nod, Walker Shop, Clementine, and Lou & Grey, as well as Refinery29's own editor, Erin Cunningham. The application period begins today, and submitting your work couldn't be easier.

Here's what you need to do: Snap an awesome pic of you and your studio, or your best product, and post it to Instagram with the tags #EtsyOpenCall and @EtsyWholesale. In your caption, let the panel know why you're so effing excited about the Open Call, and which store you'd love to see carry your line come holiday season. A heads up that designers invited to the Open Call event to pitch will need to be approved Etsy Wholesale sellers, so you can apply to Etsy Wholesale now to get the ball rolling.

From today through June 4, Etsy will select up to 50 amazing aspiring designers — which we'll announce right here on July 1 — to attend an in-person pitch event at their (somewhat insane) Brooklyn headquarters later that month. So, hold tight: In our opinion, you're totally almost famous.
