Arlene Dickinson recently said: "I don’t think there’s ever been a better opportunity to be an entrepreneur than right now... Innovative people who have different and new ideas and people who go to the market with a new value proposition do extremely well" and I couldn't agree with her more!
This past weekend Balanced Needles Knitting & Quilting got a little boost with our MOMpreneur Award of Excellence nomination with a note in The Star Phoenix! We're also very excited that the Martensville Messenger will be featuring us in an upcoming editorial. The momentum is building, and it is definitely an exciting time to be an entrepreneur.
This morning, we broke the top 10! As of 10:00 CST we're in 8th place overall, which means our nomination is on the first page of the gallery!
I'm still in the process of finding suppliers for some of the more unique items that get turned into quilts, bags, and home decor. Yesterday I placed an order that I'm hoping arrives much sooner than the expected delivery date of December 26. Then again, I'm the one who decided that placing an overseas order during Christmas would be a smart idea. But, those looking for RAF, Armstrong, Munro and a few other tartans are in luck--I'll be doing up a few samples for you soon! I'll post pictures here and on the Balanced Needles Knitting & Quilting fanpage when they are ready.
Until next time,
