2010 was a big year for The Thrifty Stitcher. The business only launched late 2009, so last year really was our first year of trading properly. It was a roller coaster ride....
The year started with a bang, so many people wanted to attend our sunday beginners classes that we doubled their frequency.
March saw us launching our first intermediate soft furnishing class- making roman blinds.
April showers accompanied our Fascinator class launch.
In May the business stopped being a partnership, which left just me running it....
We teamed up with a cookery school in june, offering creative crafting and cooking classes for children.
July saw a reduction in class frequency as i began a very heavy theatre job that meant I had to work all over the weekends.
August- Nov were a blur of juggling the business and my theatre job. Made a whole new set of friends though at my networking group and on twitter
December saw us crafting for fairs and running new christmas workshops.
So here i am in 2011- this year I hope to get time to do more personal sewing.
We are launching a few new classes this year- the first being an intermediate cushion class "Beyond Beginners" This class focusses on inserting and using zips, and mastering the box cushion.
Looking forward to a great Thrifty Stitching year....
