I received the “sales boards” that Clothworks puts together to send out to their reps just in time for the SF Quilting Guild Show this weekend! I have a booth at the show and thoroughly enjoyed my day yesterday as I sold lots and lots of cards, wrapping paper, boxed notes and a few list pads. I got to show off my NEW quilting fabric collection that will be available this coming September. The women loved it! I heard many compliments ranging from “love the colors” to “this would catch my eye and make me want to do something with it”. My favorite comment was “You are like your paintings…they have a certain vitality to them…like you, they glow!”
It felt so natural to be standing amidst all my creations telling my story, showing my work and inspiring others. Clearly this group is my demographic to sell to, I thought, as they were choosing 3, 4 and 5 cards to purchase at one time. It was so reaffirming to hear the many compliments and be thanked for using my gifts!
As stated in an earlier post, this is the year I want to take “The Big Leap”. Yesterday I thought that was possible! I’ll try to plug in to the positive energy that I felt all day whenever I get myself all turned around in my thinking and begin doubting myself.
Can’t wait to see what today brings….
BTW, here’s photos from my booth…you can get an idea of what the quilting fabric sales boards look like….
