The title needs to be read as if your favorite team just scored the winning goal in the World Cup. 2015 was a great year for meeting our goals! I'm not a big fan of making resolutions in the new year (and I have issues with lists - but that's a different topic) so I like to reflect on goals achieved instead.
As I write this I am reminded more and more of all the positive things the past year brought, and just how much we achieved. At the end of last year we had begun making zippered cases for Signature Needle Arts and we began the new year with that contract growing to include more items. I was really thrilled when they asked me to do a re-design of one of their needle rolls (and I got designer credit on their website)!!
Then we did our first Trunk Show at Nitro Knitters in Beaverton, Oregon, and it was a rousing success. I can't wait to do this regularly and add more locations (if you want one in your favorite LYS, have the owner contact me).
But wait! There's so much more! I created a new purse and received requests to make the pattern available in some independent fabric shops so I started producing patterns. This was a big step for me and led to the realization that I am a Designer.
As if these things weren't enough, I finally have a website and started this blog. I hope you enjoy this and will comment and check back often.
