Here's another friend of mine: Kris Gianetti from Cozy Cottage Fabrics (http://www.cozycottagefabrics.com/) in Brea, CA. We met up at 7 am on Thursday for a meeting of our Shop Owner's Group. We are 11 shop owners from all across the United States and we've been meeting together for about 3 years now. We've done some advertising together in McCall's Quilting Magazine, we share marketing tips....we even went on a cruise together. It's kind of funny how it began with business but now we are the closest of friends and chat daily with each other. Hats off to all of you!
Market ended on Sunday and we left Portland for Eugene, OR to spend the late afternoon and evening with my brother Denny and his lovely wife Carey. They are so very gracious and we had a great time. Carey fixed a fabulous Mexican meal and we even got to try Wii bowling....it's got to be fixed: I bowled a 168! Anyway it was fun and great to see them. Then it was off early Monday morning....I missed my hubby and I know Liz was missing her darling girl and hubby.
Now to implement all the great ideas we received, wait for the fabric and patterns to arrive and make some new samples. Wow! Come into the store and see what's new!
