While traveling I popped into a quilt store...
Just to look..... [yeah right :-)]
I AM proud of the fact that I have a running list of projects I want to work on - AND I want to complete.... so that I have a running list of types of fabric needed. It helps me when I walk into wonderland (quilt shop!) to have a focus. It helps me NOT buys what strikes my fancy - though I usually buy at least ONE item just because... and it works its way into a project after that...
Anyway...... as I was checking out, I chatted with the owner and she was a font of info that I could take back to the shop where I work. I am always on the lookout for ideas to help boost business.. because of life events, my shop is having some struggles.
So I listened.
And asked questions.
And took flyers
And brought them back to my quilt shop owner.
And, because I know that I totally overwhelm her with enthusiasm (because I am me :-).... I spent a good bit of time with her assistant. She is much better able to encourage and help and pick and choose what will and won't work.
But at least
I gave information and new ideas.
It's not up to me where they go from here :-)
