Today I visited the Craft, Hobby & Stitch trade show at the NEC in Brmingham.
As I said in a previous post, I had made a list of all the exhibitors I wanted to see, and amazingly enough I did actually get to see them all !! Of course, I was side-tracked by lots of other lovely stands and felt like a real lurker at some of them. One in particular had the most amazing space dyed threads and fabrics which I became slightly obsessed with and kept telling myself that I didn't really need to stock these lovely things and they weren't felt based, so I really shouldn't be buying them ..... but a little voice kept saying "buy me, buy me" But I was strong and even though I was extremely tempted, I just made do with taking away a brochure and a couple of free samples and told myself that I should take some time to think carefully about it before placing an order.
However, I did order some fantastic felting books ... a couple of which haven't been published yet, but 1 of them has been and copies should be on their way to me very soon. Keep an eye out on the website and on this blog for when they arrive. I don't think you'll be disappointed !!!
I've also decided to stock a number of other fantastic items that I think will add to my little range and I hope that once they arrive, you will agree.
My new website seems to be behaving itself now and I have to say I am absolutely amazed at the amount of hits I've been getting. Lots of them have been direct hits, but I've had a huge amount that have come via search engines, which never used to happen on the old site, so it looks like all my hard work on identifying keywords has paid off. I've received a fair few orders as well, so all in all, I'm very pleased.
And now I must sew some labels on to purses !
See you soon
