Good morning everyone.....
It's another beautiful sunny day; a day to get out and about and fun a few errands; as well as spend a few days working on Studio projects.
There are some fun and exciting plans in the work...
In recent weeks there are several great ideas and projects that I've been trying to put into one productive business plan; I am very happy to see that they are all coming together...and I am excited to see the new projects develop.
Over the past couple of years, with the crazy schedule of the Studio in Newfoundland, it hasn't been possible to get as much time for other projects and commitments. It is important that i find a way to Marry the different aspects of my quilting life so that they all flow together.
One of the areas that I need to spend more time on is my design time. There are many Bill Locke Designs patterns that have been on the work table for quite some time - that are waiting to be finished and released. There is a new and exciting project that I've been invited to work on that needs some special attention over the next couple of months. I am happy to say that it is coming along wonderfully; I can't wait to share the details with you later in the year.
It is important that I also work to incorporate more classes/workshops into my Studio time - both locally and on-the-road. Many of you have been asking for that for quite some time now and I plan to follow though on some wonderful fun times in the near future.
Then there are my many, many loyal customers who enjoy the many goodies available through the Studio. I love the hunt for new products...and I get excited every time I am able to bring something new and exciting to your creative world. Visiting the International Quilt Markets and working with Suppliers on a daily basis in this search is something that I enjoy - and I will continue to do all that I can to bring as much excitement as possible to the Studio so that I can share it all with you.
In order to be able to do all of the above, I have decided that over the next few months, I will be working out of my new Home Studio; rather than open a 2nd location at this time. The one location will give me the time that I need to be able to work out a new business plan in orde to cater to each of the above important aspects of my stitching live; allowing me to be able to serve you even better.
My online customer base is enormous and it is important that I take the time to give you the best service possible. This new plan will allow me the time to do that and still give me the time that I need to work on these other fun features of my quilting world.
For local customers; you will still be able to visit me at the Studio; although it will be important to check ahead to reconfirm my schedule. Meanwhile, with regards to Studio stock, with everything eventually being availbale on line, it will be great because no matter where you are, you'll able to grab a cuppa, and visit the Studio and shop in the comfort of your home. This way, I'll be able to offer even more to my wonderful, online customers who have always supported me to tremendously; for which I am truly grateful.
I thank everyone for your encouragement and support; and I look forward to serving you even more in the coming days.
