Since July I am not in the shop every day as I have been spending two days each week at home designing so it is a bit hit and miss to catch up with people.
I met a lovely lady from overseas today who has her own quilt shop and we had an indepth discussion about running a patchwork business and doing Mail Order over the internet. It was really nice to talk to someone else with the same goals and interests.
I love designing quilts and now I actually only do stuff that pleases me and hope that other people will like it too. I have tried to do designs that I think people will like and then find that I am never happy with the finished result. So I have learnt over the years that I have to be true to my own vision.
I have been "head down, bum up" (as the saying goes) for the last 4 weeks because we are having our Preview Night on Wednesday 7th December between 7.00 and 9.00pm where we reveal our new classes for next year and our new Block of the Month. It is also our way of thanking our loyal customers for their support through the year with a cuppa and some nibblies plus some door prizes and extra special disounts. So if you are local and free, come and say Hi and share in the fun.
