Market Recap

I headed off to Minneapolis for the Quilt Market this past weekend-and I'm so glad I decided to go. We had a wedding to go to that Sat, but I realized I needed to get out there and find some new fabrics and designers. After a relaxing and not as bad of a drive as I had anticipated-I arrived at the Convention Center. It was a bit overwhelming at first, but I snagged some great finds-check out our facebook fan page for images Drawstring Studio. They should all be arriving in the next couple of weeks and then I'll get them up on our Etsy Store.

Oh yeah and great news, we had our last inspection last week and only have to do a few minor things before they come back to give the OK. I'm hoping to have a grand opening mid to late June-I know it's coming quickly!!!!!

Inspection Day

We have two of our four inspections today-keep your fingers crossed! I'll also be heading up to Minnesota this Sat for the yearly trade show-hoping to find some new fabrics lines and hopefully some organics that aren't too pricey.

Finally getting up and running

So after quite a bit of planning, waiting, and more planning oh and a bit of procrastination...I finally have some items up on Etsy. I have started with a small selection and will be adding patterns, supplies and fabrics on a weekly basis.

As far as the brick and mortar store goes, it is slowly coming along. I went to the city yesterday and applied for our occupancy permit but need to have 4 inspections done-so I am crossing my fingers that they go well. The painting is almost done and it's amazing how much better the space already looks. Once the painting is complete, Justin's going to start on the wood floors and then I'll start bringing in some of the fixtures and decorations.

I'll keep everyone updated. I'm very excited, yet very nervous about this endeavor.
