Wow, what a busy little old shop we have been over the last few weeks and particularly today. Now for a small niche business this is fantastic news and in a small way I have to thank my blogspot – yep, good things to be said about blogger despite the fact that it has made posting a touch difficult on and off.
Many of my new customers – most of whom are escaping the problems following the earthquake in Christchurch, have said that they had learnt about the shop through blogger, yeah, how cool is that?
Today I got to host 18 quilters all at once – this little shop of mine was fair bursting at the seams, tee hee . Gail Garber is leading a group of quilters around New Zealand on their way to the Remarkables Symposium in Queenstown and quite some time ago I was approached to see if they could come and spend time in our shop. Well, of course I said yes, then promptly ‘Googled’ Gail to find out what I could about her. This is one of Gail’s masterpieces, WOW!!!
So, the big bus pulled into the driveway and out came all of the ladies. Once they had spent time wondering around the shop selecting treasures to purchase and once transactions were made I got to spend some chat time with some of them. Gail very kindly autographed my copy of her book and one of the ladies gave me a CD of guild projects past and present from the Santa Rosa Quilt Guild.
All in all it was a great visit, so now I’m sitting with my feet up getting ready to sit and watch this CD – life is good ; ))
have a wonderful weekend
