Hi! I’m Tina Holley! Sixteen months ago I started a new venture, I bought my local quilt shop. Since then my life has been filled with challenges and rewards, and I decided the best way to tell you about new products, new people, and new projects is with this blog.
My shop is a fun place for people to come, and many of my customers and friends refer to it as their “happy place.” And that makes me happy. I strive for a warm, inviting environment where people can learn and their creativity can soar. I hope I can translate that into this blog.
I met a wonderful woman through my shop named Rhonda Buss. She writes for Sew News Magazine and has a blog called “Sew Bussted!” She decided to make a video blog called “Material Witness.” It was so surprising and exciting when she called me to be one of her video guests. Rhonda called and asked if I would let her interview me on video for her series. She had been in the shop several times and was very excited and encouraging about all the progress I had made. Of course, when she asked me, I could only say, “Yes!” We set a time, and she came in and sat at my counter and we talked like old friends. Below is the interview as posted on YouTube:
Next week on February 28th be on the lookout for Fat Quarter Tuesday! Hope to see you there!
