how to "succeed" in small business (while really trying)

OK--it finally rained--a wonderful soaking rain--just what my garden needed. And now the sun is making a brief and welcome appearance before more rain this week-end. I must find time to move some iris into a new bed.

But first I wanted to share with you this blog post by Jeanne Yocum. She has started a series of posts on tips from other small businesses. I was honored that my Quilt Studio in Shelburne Falls was the first chosen. I hope you'll read it and let me know what you think. Indeed she is going to be doing a whole series--I have a feeling she will have some more great ideas in future works. Don't we need all the help we can get in today's economy?

And now--a quilt named october sun before I head outside. See I told you this post would be short and to the point.


  1. Gorgeous quilt - and an excellent one to connect to your Facebook comment. It certainly drew me in.

  2. Beautiful piece Ann. And yes, a great eyecatcher.

  3. Great interview; you are an exemplar! And I love this quilt and its warmth. For some reason I wasn't able to leave a comment on the previous post so let me just say that I do believe in a balance between tradition and the new. I think you have that in your work.

  4. yes, it is gorgeous,and it is a good article as well..
