I love my friends!

Oh .  My.  God.  You guys are so amazing - the offers for help with my pattern selling are just leaving me speechless with joy.

I just like making patterns - I've never been totally happy with the idea of running my own shop - tax, business, and other issues (quite aside from vulnerabilities with the design) have been stressing me out.  I'm a bad salesperson, and I just want to spend my time designing.  The opportunities you have offered me are overwhelming in their wonderfulness.

That meme about people online who have changed my life?  It can't express how much I have received from everyone who has offered help, advice, and solutions to the things that scare and bother me.

I am humbled and thankful from the bottom of my heart at having such wonderful friends.

Big wet sloppy virtual kisses to all of you.

I'm in it for the big sloppy virtual kisses, you know. =)

The secret to business is knowing yourself -- know what you're good at doing and what you're bad at doing. Then you find someone to do the stuff you're bad at doing. For example, I'm bad at drafting embroidery patterns.

I will be e-mailing you tonight or tomorrow - and lighting candles for you to have the best selling year ever. You have no idea how much this offer means to me.

You're the best, L. You really, really are.

Email away. I'm here for the duration.

If calling would be easier for you, please use the toll-free number on the website and if we don't pick up, leave your number and I'll call you right back.

I'm sensing a very big universal convergence here. My best wishes to you both.

I think this could be the begining of a *B-A-utiful* relationship!

Wait, you're selling patterns?

Jul. 24th, 2008 04:31 pm (UTC)
I *will* be - finally. :)

Because of the way that the LJ friends page works, I saw this entry first. Then I went and read the other one to see if it meant what I thought that it meant...

Are you thinking what I'm thinking, Pinkie?

Question... is this going to happen at Pennsic, or is that just too impossible?
Jul. 24th, 2008 05:11 pm (UTC)
No pressure, right?

I beleive so...we need to make formal arrangements, but we'll see if it can happen. I can do it easily at my end, and getting the framework in place for consignment, etc etc is not a big problem. I got in touch with PA Dpt. of Revenooers and modified my vendor's license - since I normally only sell what I manufacture, I just needed to make some paperwork changes. I got the faxed copy of the new license back a little while ago, so we *can* be good to go.

Pretty sure I am, Brain. :-D
Jul. 24th, 2008 10:31 pm (UTC)
Oh, GOOD, because I want to BUY!

nodnod. Me Too! (3? 4?)

Called the PA Dept. of Layber and Revenooers to get the neccessary paperwork filed to carry your patterns - jsut a different type of vendor's license. I've got a copy of a consignment agreement ready for your review, and when you drop off patterns, we can deal with inventory lists, etc.

Admin stuff = done.

I've had a couple of inquiries already.

Sounds good!

OH DRAT and I can't go to Pensic! I hope Kass and You can work things out fast. I'm about to send her my mid-year bonus and would LOVE to send some to you too!!!!!!
It's like the Reeses Cups of costuming Goddesses.

I'll buy your patterns without seeing them.

I'm a continent away from Pennsic, and I know you haven't yet resolved the issues with putting the examples up online, but - well - just drop me an email, tell me how much the check should be made out for, and where to send it. (And you can imagine in my straitened circumstances, this isn't something I say often.)

Jul. 28th, 2008 03:07 pm (UTC)
I can't find your e-mail - drop me a line at elsworthy(AT)netzero(DOT)com, and I can fulfill all your pattern needs. :)

Attacklaurel & Kassrants? Surely an association imagined, & implemented, by the gods.

Go, Girls! May the civilised world tremble before your textiliar, patterniast, costumiarian acumen.
