This week we have a new video on how to mix batiks with large scale tropical floral prints. We hope it will give you some ideas about what to do with those gorgeous big flowers that are still folded up in your stash!
I'd like to say, in honor of Labor Day, that we have the most amazing group of people working at eQuilter here in Boulder. Many of them have been here for a very long time, and everybody does their job with a smile and a quick step. They love to see the inventive combinations of fabrics that come up with your orders.
From the front office (customer service, bookkeeping, imaging) to the buying office, and throughout our warehouse (pullers, cutters, shipping and inventory specialists) we have a crack team and we know you appreciate their excellent and professional work as well!
If you have called in to ask about an order, or to request a special fabric or color, you may have spoken to Dana who has just returned from her medical leave after heart surgery. We are so happy to have her back in the saddle, but she is going to take it easy for awhile. Hallie ran the Customer Service department in Dana's absence, and she gets an extra round of applause for keeping everybody happy over the last couple months.
Last week I met with Bob from the Wild Animal Sanctuary which is about an hour east of here. We are big fans of the sanctuary, which houses lions tigers and bears (oh my!) that have been rescued from people's garages, back yards, and tiny cages. I am getting involved in some fundraising ideas for the organization, and I'll be present at their fundraiser Nov 21 at the e-Town auditorium here in Boulder. If you are in the area, mark your calendar, and watch for more details.
