What An AMAZING Weekend!!!


This weekend was my Grand Opening of my new studio and it was AMAZING!  I did the best that I could with the promotion...my budget AND my customer niche is VERY small.  However, I did try to get it out to the guilds and I got it out to the local businesses!
 

I had some help (I was afraid it wasn't going to be enough), which turned out to be wonderful and plenty!!!  My Mom came to town, my distributor Val from Virginia Longarm Network came in, I met a "quilt angel" named Joanne and a good friend from my Guild named Cheri all helped me out tremendously!!!  All the customers that came in were greeted and shown around with friendly smiling faces  : D.   



It was really productive too!  I got in several more quilts, filled up several classes and got some interest in the Innova Quilting Systems!!!  I met a lot of super great quilters and can't wait to quilt for them! 

I couldn't have asked for a better weekend.  It was a lot of work, but it was worth it! 

Now, I am super excited to get back to quilting : D.  Whooo hoooo!!

Wow! Sounds like a job well done. I would have loved to have been there, too. I love the art of quilting even though I don't get much done any more. Enjoy your new location/studio.
