Welcoming May with Mother's Day Monthly Themed Center.
This display welcomes visitors as they enter the shop.
It changes monthly to reflect a season/holiday/special event, etc.
The Fiber Center is front and center in the shop and occupies the space visitors see first as they make their way into the shop. The Fiber Center is the newest addition to the shop and features things from my Knitting and Crochet Collections/Stashes. Having this Fiber Center offers shoppers a discount on books and magazines as well as a variety of yarn. It gives me the opportunity to market items I enjoy making like stitch markers, jewelry, cards and knitting needle stem YoYo Flowers. Most importantly, the Fiber Center will feature the Crocheted Shawls and Ponchos I have made and the 'Color Combo Kits' I have put together. I'll post photos of the those later in May.
To the right of the Fiber Center is the Fabric Center...which is greatly condensed from when I first opened. I am finding that in this shopping environment, the majority of quilters/sewers are more likely to pick up 'Bundled' and 'Short Yardage' fabrics. Like 'Designer Packets', Fat Quarters, and Color Combo Quiltmaker bags. Next on the tour is the Rag Rug and Basket Center...or at least the majority of the rugs. Others are displayed in the Monthly Center.
Then of course there is the Quilt/Blanket/Bedding Center which occupies the third wall of the studio with one of the two windows that face the open area of The Chicken Farm Art Center. Here also, are baskets of threads and other sewing notions.
Across from the Quilt/Bedding Center is the 'Kitchen Center' which is on the back side of the Fiber Center. Aprons have been good sellers and the Microwave Bowl Warmers and Potholders are perhaps my best sellers. I keep a stack of ready to stitch together warmers and potholders beside my sewing machine and sew on them just about everyday. They are a great way to use up scraps and/or short yardage pieces.
Lastly on the tour is the check out counter.
I am always happy to see you here on CollectInTexas Gal,
and would be thrilled for you to come see my shop in person.
Happy May Day 2017!
