... Please excuse me if you think I'm blowing my own trumpet. I probably am, but I was so thrilled to have an email from this lady today, enquiring about the embroidery threads. Heather had been given my name by one of my customers. Heather writes the Independent Needlework News "It's like CNN, but all needlework news, all the time!" and has written a wonderful post on the threads and kits that I'm selling, with links to my blog, my Shop, different 'pages' of the shop and my contact details. I was quite overwhelmed, and very grateful indeed. Who knows what business could come from her kindness. Heather, I thank you. And Susan, I thank you, too, for passing on the information. You are both so kind.
Update: I'd like to add the following, which Heather wrote to me earlier. I imagine it could be of interest to quite a few of you:
INN is my way of giving back to the needlework community. I want to be the place where stitchers, designers, shops, manufacturers, and distributors can get all their news in one place fairly quickly and then be able to sit down and stitch. With tips starting to come in, maybe I will also be able to stitch!
