Back To The Drawing Board
Next I'll have to work on the lining pattern and then the straps. But it's really starting to take shape! I'm so excited, can't wait to make it in REAL fabric, it always looks so different with all the interfacing and contrasting colors.
Lastly, I recently signed up for an advertising package at Indie Biz Chicks' website. I need to get busy getting the advertising materials ready. I have a deadline of mid-October but I don't like waiting until the last minute. I'm so excited to see my little business starting to gain some momentum.
Speaking of my business growing, yesterday was quite a day for the R.Kay Design website. About 9:00 a.m. I thought I'd check my AWeber stats (that's the email service company that handles my mailing list) to make sure the weekly update went out as scheduled and noticed a BUNCH of new subscriptions. I mean, it was 10 times the number I'd been getting on most days. I thought there was some kind of error! So I checked the blog stats and saw that www.sewforum.com had a link that people were clicking. I checked it out and low and behold, the admin the had posted a link to my Molly Handbag Patten and all those new sign-ups were coming from that link. Amazing what a well placed link can do for a business! Thanks Sew Forum! And by the way, Sew Forum seems to be a great forum for discussing and showing off everything sewing, I recommend you check it out for yourself. It's hosted by www.AllBrands.com, an online sewing machine dealer.
Thanks to everyone who has helped me along and here's to a long relationship. I love creating! One day it will be my fulltime job! You'll see, it will happen!
Until later ~
