I would call my shop "Threads of Friendship",I would also try and have a weekly or monthly giveaway anything from pins to patterns make it a treasure hunt, also if the shop is big enough have a male creche area
Val – Who chose the name "Threads of Friendship" and her idea of a male creche was a wonderful idea.
I loved both the name and the idea but have given her the prize for the male creche. The reason is because that is exactly what I would do. Check him in which Tea/ coffee and cake. Reclining chairs, big screen TV and some magazines.
I have a idea for your giveaway. Here it goes. My shop would be called "Patchwork and Pies". I would have a few tables so that anyone who wishes to sit and have coffee and a fresh piece of pie could and also a front counter where you could purchase a whole pie for home. My materials would be close with samples of quilts and my quilting classes would be where everyone could see incase they were interested in taking a class. Angie
Pies to take home. What a great idea. Who wants to cook after they have been sewing all day at their favourite shop. Not me that's for sure.
And because of the "Pie and Tart" quilt what else would I call it.
If you could both send me your addresses so that I can send your patterns
Congratulations and I hope you enjoy them.
Here is a picture of the pattern you will be receiving. "Waterloo"
