So real quick because I’m working on a major quilting project I want done tonight….
Yahoo changed their web server that I had my website registered with. I was considering changing to another web design/server but hadn’t had time to make the change. In the meantime yahoo kept charging me monthly for my website that I couldn’t access or make changes to unless I upgraded to their new designer/server. So this fall my credit card they had on file expired and I chose not to update the info, so the website is supposed to be offline – but it is still there if you want to go there – just not update-able. It is hummingbirdhollow.us
In the meantime I started blogging for friends & family. I noticed several other quilters & fabric store owners were doing the same and so here I am setting up to blog for my business.
There are some downsides – you can’t download my price/order form or design catalog. But if you do want an order form or my design catalog – just post a comment here or drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
On the upside I don’t get charged a monthly fee by yahoo for something I can’t change. And I can easily share what I’m working on without having to mess with html codes and stuff like I did with updating a website.
A few other answers to questions asked – batting. I do carry it in limited quantities – primarily for my out-of-state or rural customers. I try to encourage my clients to support their local quilt shops – they support me in allowing me to meet with customers & arrange drop-offs & pick-ups.
Locations – I have arrangements with 3 quilt shops – Quilt & Sew in Fredericksburg, Virginia; That Little Quilt Shop in Madison, Virginia and Cottonwood in Charlottesville, Virginia. I’m open to meeting at other locations – libraries, grocery store parking lots, etc.
Due to changes at home I now go to the quilt shops on the 1st & 3rd TUESDAYS of each month – although this month I skipped going out today. There are 5 Tuesdays this month and with a grandbaby expected this month I’m being a bit off schedule. I will probably be out at the shops next Tuesday – January 10th. And then depending on the baby – either Jan 24 or Feb 7th. If you’re in Fredericksburg area and want to meet otherwise just drop me an email or call me (540)846-9982 – I’m in town with kids’ activities other days of the week and can work something out.
Well – back to finishing a quilt! Again feel free to post a comment here, drop me an email or give me a call!
