We Want You to Help us Decide What Products we Offer in 2019?

Hey Tribe!

Here we are in the last quarter of 2018.  The new year may be two and half months away (yikes that’s closer than ya think), but here at Team Patch we are looking ahead.

We are committed to bringing you “KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF” customer service and “I WOULD JUMP OFF A CLIFF TO GET THAT” products, so we’d LOVE your input to help us create our product and service offerings for 2019.

By the way, I write the way I talk, so don’t wonder if I’m on morning leave from the looney bin. . . . . cuz I’m looney, goofy, creative, curious, and crazy-fun. This also explains why I love, love, love being a crazy-fun mom.

Okay, back to the whole point of this post, which is to ask you for your help.

How can we serve YOU in 2019.

We’re contemplating what, if any, block-of-the-month programs we can offer in 2019.  I have designed BOM’s over the years – I lovingly call them “Monthly Minis” because they are a “mini” dose of stitchin’ fun, every “month” for creating small wall hangings or table runners.  Lots of shops have had these MM’s available, however we recognize some of you, may not have a kick-butt local quilt shop and you’ve never seen some of our MM’s series.  I know, it’s sad to think some people don’t live near an awesome, inspiring quilt shop . . . . but it happens.  So, since I don’t have the time to franchise my Mom’s quilt shop (Merry’s Stitchins – which is kick-butt, inspiring, helpful and downright contagious) in every under-served community, we offer to bring it to you the only way we know how – – – ship it to your mailbox each month.

What that means is every month for the entire year, we ship you a goodie box/envelope containing: 1 seasonal pattern (for the upcoming month) and include the cute buttons &/or hanger.  This starts in Dec or Jan and ends in Nov.  You get it a month ahead of when you hang it up – so you have plenty of time to get it finished.

BOM’s not your thing?  We’ve considered that too, keep reading.

And this is where YOU come in.  Rather than guess all day, as to what we “think” you’d like to see us offer, how about we simply ASK you.  Ya know, hear it straight from the “horse’s mouth”.

We’ve included 1 question in this post and it has several possible answers.  You can help us decide what great products we offer next year.  That’s a pretty big deal and that’s because we seriously care a whole lot about what brings you joy, and if we can bring joy to your world, then . . . . . mission accomplished.

So, I talk mostly about what BOM’s we could offer next year, but not everyone likes to commit to a whole year of projects, so we want to know from you non-BOM’ers too.  “What type of projects do you want us to offer?” Table runners, baby-room decor projects, laundry-room wall hangings, farm house themed quilted wall hangings, quilted decor of a certain size, quilted wall hangings of a certain theme.  I want you to dream about what you want to create.  You have permission to dive down the rabbit hole here and I hope you will bring me along.  Perhaps you’ve seen something in an image on the web somewhere that shows a framed wall hanging but it’s all wood or metal and you’d love to create it using fabric. . . . . I want to tap into your creative dreams. Please, if you’re willing, share your creative dreams with me.  Comment below, include a webpage link, mail me a torn page from a magazine, whatever it is, . . . . .  I want to create what you want to create. It’s that simple.

Here is how you can help.  Click below to answer the burning question.  I’ve attached an image next to each MM answer, so you can see what you’re “voting” for.   Even if BOM’s aren’t your shiz, we want to know what iz your shiz.

Tell us! What would you like to see us offer in 2019?

Thanks a million!  Your opinion matters.
