Ferret Posted August 7, 2006 Report Share Posted August 7, 2006 It has been said before, but bears saying again, what a wonderful thread. I nearly didn't read it because I am not planning on giving up, and I am so glad I have. I am just starting to try and build a business. I take my work to any show and tell I can and people like it. I hand out cards. I have a LQS recommending me to customers, but they don't call. I have just had an article published in a quilting magazine here, and a grand total of about 10 hits on my website from it. It is good to know I am not the only person finding it more difficult to start up than it is presented. As I said I have no intention of giving up and I am planning on giving a book of samples to the LQS, and then working my way around the next closest shops. None of them have and in house service, so I feel I have nothing to lose by talking to them. I am sure that if I can get the word out to people the business will come my way, but it is going to take a lot longer than I had expected.
