We were delighted to welcome Sinead from Appletree Crafts to our January meeting. She brought her shop and gave a talk about the highlights of running a shop. It was clear that she has a great support network of family and customers and in turn offers so much support in so many ways to them. As fabric-ophiles it was interesting to hear that the most successful fabrics in her shop are the ones that all three buyers like – even though “if my Mum had her way, we’d stock every batik”!
Thanks to our young demonstrator who made a paper wreath at the meeting – see her finished item in the show and tell gallery.
Show and Tell: (as proof that if Assumpta takes the pic I will post it!)
