I hope all is well with you and your family in this new phase of life we are all going through. Stay home and Stay Safe is the new moto.
My Husband and I and my Mother are all staying home unless it is something vital. We are well stocked up and doing well. I have been getting to some business items that I have put off for sometime now. I just finished creating new catalogs. I was able to split off some larger catalogs and make them 2 that I hope will be easier to use. I have also added some new ones and have retired some. Enjoy looking through the changes.
I am still working on quilting and so far it has been working out well to do drop off and pick ups at the front door for all my local customers. How this will work is you will place your quilt etc in a bag with the order form. (You can download the order form //i.b5z.net/i/u/1428381/f/Order_form_2020.pdf) We will still make an appointment time so I know your coming, when you get her just ring the bell and I will come out and get your quilt making sure we keep our 6 feet distance. If you are not sure how you want your quilt done then I can choose for you as I do for many of my customers or we can do that part over the phone.
I will email you a copy of your invoice so you know what the charges will be when it is finished. When the quilt is ready to return we will do the same thing. We will talk about payment methods over the phone.
For all my Customers who ship to me every thing is the same as you have been doing. return shipping times could start seeing some delays as noted from UPS etc... So far things have been running very well.
We can also aways wait until life gets back to some kind of normal and that is fine as well. Enjoy the process of making all those quilts. It is good to keep busy as well as to slow down and just enjoy the process. Take the time to do something you always wanted to try but did not really have the time to dig into the process. I have been playing with my 12 needle happy embroidery machine, just stitching designs out that I have had for years and never really had the time to do them. I am learning more about my machine and loving it. I may start trying to work on embroidery digitizing if this goes on much longer.
We don't really know how log this stay at home will be needed but one thing we do know is that it is working to a point and we are finding new benifits from just getting back to basics. Learning how to connect with people again. I have spent more time on the telephone with my long time girlfriends than we have in years. It has been great to have those long long talks again.
Our planet is also reeping the benifits. With the world in a massive shut down the planet is recovering some - showing us it can be done.
I know many people are busy making mask for our health care workers, My Mom and I have made some and hope to make more. We have kept some for ourselves to use when we go to the grocery store. This week we have seen others with mask on as well. Facebook has a ton of links to some easy ones to sew. You can't find Elestic anymore but you can make a bias strip to use in its place that works very well.
I have faith that this will get better but in the meantime please be safe and take care of you...... and yours.....
I will try to post here more often just to keep in touch.
Thanks for everything
