There is quite a difference in stocking a Quilt/Fabric Shop as opposed to a Fabric/Fiber Studio. First there is the space difference and secondly, folks are 'Quick Pick Shoppers' in Studio/Vendor shops. If they are Fabric or Yarn Crafters, they are more likely to pick up a Coordinated Bundle of Fabric or a Yarn Kit rather than a bolt of yardage or individual skeins of yarn. So, I am learning and adjusting my marketing strategies.
Then there is the 'Dog Days of Summer Sales'. Yep, when it's 90 to 100+ degrees it's hard to think about quilting, knitting, crocheting or much of anything that requires more than a tank top, shorts and flip flops.
