So…. a crazy thing has happened, and part of me still can’t believe it.
As you know, I recently opened Bearbottom Quilts in an effort to sell some of my beautiful creations.
Well, not long after I opened the shop, I got an email from someone who was interested in buying all the quilts I had in stock (yes, ALL!!!!), to sell at a winter market in the coming months.
At first, I was a little reluctant. 1) It seemed way too good to be true. 2) I just opened the shop and did I really want to sell everything out… it would make it hard to gain a following while I was replenishing the stock.
But, we corresponded back and forth for a bit, and the offer became more real. So now, the shop look likes this…
Sad and empty! But I’m pretty darn happy. As you read this, Mom and I are probably on our way to deliver the quilts (it’s in a town about an hour and a half from us). My quilt ladder is empty, and I have a pile of space back in the studio!
Of course, as soon as I get back from delivering them, I’ll be making more quilts! Got to get that store stocked again!
