My little shop has been in operation for 4 years! And, of course, I can't believe it's been that long already!
I am so thankful to all of my wonderful customers who allow me to supply their fabric needs and wants, and I also appreciate everyone who stops in here at my little blog every day. You are all really too sweet for words!
This past four years has full of learning and figuring things out. Honestly, it's just recently that I am really feeling the groove of how this retail business works. The ins, the outs, the busy times, the slow times, what to buy, what to not buy, and just generally how to make a little business doing what I love.
The biggest thing I have learned recently is to focus on what's already working and build on that. I have a tendency to want to try to new ideas and branch out, when sometimes it's good to focus on what is already working. Having too many directions can lead to over-commitment and doing things halfway.
So, since it's my shop's birthday, we must have a little party, don't you think?
And the best thing about parties? The presents!
Today, tomorrow and Thursday I will doing a little giveaway here on my blog just to say "thanks"!
Today's giveaway is a pattern kit. It includes the pattern for the Ziggy Baby quilt, plus 5 fat quarters (winner's choice) to make the printed zig-zags on the quilt.
Also, through Thursday I will be having my shop's annual birthday sale! Use coupon code 4thbirthday20 at checkout to receive 20% off your full order!
Have a lovely day!
