I've been away for a little while but I'm back and ready to go.
Mothers Day was busy as usual and I was off to the flower shop to help look after the Mom's and play with flowers for awhile. Although it seems to be something I am doing less and less , I still enjoy going into the shop and doing design work.
It's a rainy day out there this morning and I can actually see the grass growing. lol. Poor Cliff has been cutting the grass like crazy already. No rest for the wicked.
Pat, Jayne, Geri and I have been very busy at the shop making shop samples for classes. It is always difficult to know what people want to do and it has been my experience that by making these samples up you get your feedback and then you have your class.
It is very important to listen to your customers. They keep us informed as to what they're looking for and usually after being asked for something a couple of times you know that you better get it in
the shop because as sure as the sun will rise, there will be more people looking for that item.
Our Rug Hooking group continues to grow and we are going to make great strides this week in making more room in our classroom area. There have been up to 15 hookers some days and it's getting a little cramped so we're remaking the room once again and I'm looking forward to it.
When spring arrives I can't seem to stop myself from moving and cleaning. Hopefully we'll be able to find everything once I'm done tidying.
This past week has seen the arrival of some beautiful fleece fabrics for babys and some nice brushed fleeces for pajama pants. Pat has been teaching some sewing classes and I'm expanding our fashion fabrics to accomodate these classes so drop in and check our what's new.
