Yesterday l packed up the shop ready for my trip down to Surrey Hills. I was invited by the lovely Tracey from AQA to set up a shop at their gathering today and do a talk.
The shop was the easy part but the talk had me nearly wetting myself (sorry about the language, but l know you guys won't mind, you know me well!) The talk was about a topic close to my heart.... My story since opening Mrs Martin's Quilt Shop. I asked a few details and found they were expecting about 100 people. I was well prepared , it was an easy topic but l was still beside myself with nerves.
What a lovely group they are, welcoming and attentive, they even laughed. Only a few minutes into my 40 minute talk l relaxed and rather enjoyed it. Couldn't believe they actually paid me to do the talk. Offered them a refund if it wasn't up to scratch.
So a big thank you to the members, l really appreciate the lovely welcome you gave me and the positive comments you made once the talk was over.
