Unfortunately in September of 2021, Etsy shop LolaLottShop was hacked. Maria the shop owner lost access to it and apparently due to ongoing issues with Etsy customer service and hackers, the shop was closed. Maria’s website lolalottashop.com was also shut down though it looks like she still owns the domain.
Maria’s shop and website curated patterns from nearly 100 designers most of whom were Russian. It was a great way for English-speaking countries to access Russian patterns in a secure format. Please see the Instagram post below from one of the designers Maria worked with. Reddit u/Karrabuka_Stitch took this screenshot of an Instagram post from Maria which is shut down as well.
I reached out to Maria via email to see if she wants to share what she is up to now and what might be next for her. We hope she is well.
