MS episode 137:: Hobbs Bonded Fibers & Quilty Cloud

I have two chats today because I thought you would enjoy learning about both of the companies and how they can help you with your sewing business. I so enjoyed chatting with Stephanie Hackney from Hobbs Bonded Fibers. Stephanie is a marketing guru and we talk all about how that led her to work for Hobbs. She is learning so much about the sewing industry and turning that into profit for Hobbs. But don’t think profit is all she is thinking about because Stephanie is making it her mission to visit local quilt shops as she travels around to trade shows. She is sharing this journey on Instagram for all of us to follow along and meet some amazing shop owners. I learned so much in this chat about batting but also about business. I am thinking of ideas to have Stephanie back on the show for sure. I also chatted with David from Quilty Cloud. I had never heard of Quilty Cloud until a super funny email landed in my inbox from Kerry, David’s wife. Kerry is a quilter and David in the tech world. They worked together to build a service to allow quilters to give quotes to potential customers easily and professionally. This service will streamline your process as a quilter trying to estimate how much thread, batting, etc will be needed in a project and also the cost. This is an episode jam packed with valuable information to help you save time and money in your sewing business.
