Look what we’ve been working on here at Vintage Mama’s Cottage! We’ve had so many requests for fingerless gloves / arm warmers that our focus has been on this fun and colorful project for a couple of weeks.
Of course we took some time off for Christmas, but now as we look to a New Year, it is exciting to make plans for building this business!
There are several new sweaters in the works for the Tatters to Treasures collection, along with matching gloves and headbands, and a few boot cuffs. We are also working on a collection of short, pixie sweater coats, and with another seamstress working on a few projects, we’ll be expanding the Tatters to Treasures collection to include patchwork, refashioned sweaters for kids.
Our new website is being built that will connect all of our various projects, and with some administrative assistance with marketing and promotions, it looks like 2015 is starting out with the promise of great progress!
Many thanks to our local Economic Development Corporation for the inspiration, encouragement, support, guidance, and resources – without the help of this great group of business people, this Vintage Mama wouldn’t have had a clue where to start with that part of building a business. I just make stuff, but in order to turn all of that fun and creativity into a real business, I guess I have to learn a few new skills.
We’ll get there, baby steps and one at a time . . . . I’m trying to be patient as I keep thinking I should be able to get all of this accomplished in one week. Or perhaps if I work really hard, all in one day. I know that’s silly, but I wish it could be true.
But living in the real world, I know that determination, hard work, commitment, and lots of support and encouragement from friends and family will eventually result in progress. Success doesn’t just happen, we have to WORK for it, and if hard work will make it happen, then I’m pretty sure it is going to happen here at Vintage Mama’s Cottage in 2015!
