Scole Primary School
10am - 3pm
The Patch cutting table is full of everything I am taking with me....I have tried to have a bit of a practise, to see how I can lay the table out..but I'm not entirely sure how much space I'll have until I am there....I am sure it will come together and anyway this is the trial run - the first time Patch has been out and about in the real rather than virtual world so we can tweak the next time if something doesn't work!!
How to display the ribbon bundles was a problem..I wanted to go pretty and vintage...but then they looked messy and people would have had to rummage too much..so I have gone for functional over fancy!
Small clear baskets...x14!! Which won't be piled on top of one another tomorrow!
The rosettes will probably be in a cream wire cake stand, and the Patch packs in the trug....
I will obviously take pictures ;)
But maybe some of you will be able to see in the flesh???
I have also been getting ready for the future.
Patch has not been advertised as such yet - by the start of June this will have altered..but in the meantime I have been visited by 2 reps this week...my ribbon rep showed me some new lines that Patch neeeeeeds!!
And I am very excited to start packaging up Christmas ribbons and trims!!
The second rep was another fabric one......Amy Butler, Kaffe, Heather Bailey........I am currently mulling my order over..the first order has to be substantial so I need to choose wisely.
I am not the worlds most patient person..in fact I could possibly be a contender for the least patient...I am struggling to stay walking before I begin to run as far as the business is concerned!!!
Patch has some new products that will be put on the website next week. I was hoping they would arrive today so I could take them to the fair but its not looking likely (the courier that usually delivers is in this area in the morning as a rule and nothing came), so look out for those!!
And finally...the most important part of tomorrow - getting Patch's name 'out there'....I ordered some new promotional things to have at the fair aswell as business cards...
Ok back to the fabric folding...the only thing left to do for tomorrow.
