I have decided it’s time to shake things up here at Patch Abilities. Knowing that when you shake it up, some things naturally find new positions. Hence, I have 2 new positions to report on today.
1 )The first being that my blog has been shaken up and it landed here at this new location. My goal is that this is easier for me to access and (gasp!) keep it updated better. Yeah, dare to dream. Mwah, ah ah!
2) The other big shake up is (and the most exciting) .. . . . . do you hear the drumroll? I’ve added a complete online store to my website: http://www.patchabilities.com. Hence, the image above.
What’s the reason I’ve decided to offer online shopping direct? Not for a lack of fantastic quilt shops that carry my product, that’s for sure. Quilter’s have been contacting me for years asking if they can buy from me because either a shop near them does not carry my products, the products they want, or they live way out in the boonies and don’t have the luxury of traveling frequently to a great quilt shop.
After a ton of thought, preparation and consideration for quilt shops that carry my product, I’ve concluded that Patch Abilities.com will not take away business from quilt shops. Here’s why: I’ve designed over 150 different patterns, carry more than 50 different hangers and countless button packs. What quilt shop do you know of that will stock “everything”? I only know of one and I’ll save that topic for a later blog post. So, it’s no wonder there are some gaps out there where you cannot find your Patch Abilities fix locally or online. Hence, my intention is to fill the gap by offering you online shopping convenience direct from the wonderful world of Patch Abilities. Ahh, sounds pleasant doesn’t it.
I want to take a moment to encourage you to shop local if and whenever possible. Without those quilt shops, none of us would have a hobby as extensive and rewarding as quilting. All I can offer you is product, but the quilt shops offer an experience, expertise, priceless advice, fabric kits and classes amongst other things. Please support your local quilt shop and ask for Patch Abilities products if you do not see them displayed.
That said, I am happy to have your business when you need my services and products at http://www.patchabilities.com
