 Corinna, owner of online store


"Love the ruffling tip! I've shopped with you several times-now
 I know how you always get my orders to me so fast☺"






I would like to thank Madame Samm for the opportunity to guest post today.  She asked me to talk a little bit about how I got started with my Crazyquiltgirl online fabric shop and to talk about a day in my life.  I’m not so sure it’s all that exciting but it certainly keeps me very busy!

I've been a stay at home mom since my son, Ryan, was born.  I wanted to work again, but I needed my job to be flexible.   I decided to try an online business, but what?  It had to be something I knew a lot about.  Let’s see…Well, I had a bit of a fabric stash and I love fabric.  Maybe I could do an online fabric shop?  Yes, that’s it!  I decided to open up an online fabric shop.   I started small and slow, selling my own stash at first and eventually selling Pre-cuts and fabric by Moda.  The business has grown steadily every year and has now become a full time job.  Fulltime job and still able to be a SAHM, yes this was a nice balance!

Now why don’t I walk you through a typical day, ready?

First I get up with Ryan, have breakfast with him and send him off to school.

Then it is time to get to work.  I usually log on to the computer, all the while sporting my PJs.  (A bonus when you work at home!)  I usually spend my time creating listings on the computer, taking photos and scanning fabrics, doing paperwork, ordering supplies, etc.  I take this time to read email and answer customer questions, blog and tweet too.  After that’s all done I usually go shower and get dressed for the day.  Now the real work begins.  I fill orders which means cutting the fabrics ordered, packaging them up and getting them ready to ship.  I do one run to the post office in the morning and one in the afternoon so the orders get out promptly.  Sometimes I have lunch with a friend and run errands when I’m out and about. 

Most recently my friend Pauline comes over in the afternoons to help me with the cutting, listing, ordering and packaging and she has even taken over the afternoon post office run for me since it is on her way home.  It has been great having the extra help in the afternoons and makes the day fly by.

Ryan comes home from school in the afternoon and we usually spend a little time talking, well he talks and I listen, about how our days went and what we did.  It’s nice to be able to be at home when he gets home from school.  I usually have something cooking or begin making dinner so we can eat before the evening activities begin.

After Pauline leaves, Ryan and I have dinner and then there is any number of family activities to be done.   Hockey takes up a fair number of our evenings.  When we do get to stay home, Ryan does his homework and I continue to fill orders that have come in and finish up any listing or ordering that needs to be done.  I’m still trying to find time to get back to quilting for myself.  I am hoping that Pauline and Pam will help me get back into that so I can make some quilts this year.  Then it is off to bed and the whole cycle begins again in the morning,


Now to share something with YOU. I get asked a lot about jelly rolls and charm packs.


So I called upon my dear quilting friends and we agreed this would be a good share. 


How many of you use a jelly roll for a seam binding? I know someone who does this all the time.  Measure your quilt, miter your strips and sew, fold in half and press. Depending on your quilt and design, you can choose moda bella solids or prints. They work perfectly and you are always certain the strips are perfectly cut.


after sewing your strips, fold in half and press. 
then sew 1/4 seam fold over and hand stitch your binding.

OR 

How about a ruffle...same idea- fold- press
You don't need a ruffle maker, no tools involved except your finger..
Fold as if you were making pleats. Do only 2 at once, sew over it,
pleat 2 more, sew, pleat 2 more, I think you get the picture.


Pretty easy, don't you agree?




For your charm packs, I like the idea that they are perfect for appliques- you can be sure the whole collection will blend.. So take  S P R I N G letters ( link above) and try this with any charm pack, or choose your own applique the next time you are thinking of adding something to your quilt. ( or with your winnings today)

If you like to win this jelly roll and charm pack from Moda called Sherbert Pips, 
leave a comment here and join me on my blog and be a new follower  ( over on my blog)and drop me a line mentioning you saw me here-a
nd I will announce the winner tomorrow morning.( on both blogs)



 Here is my shop

Happy Quilting.
Corinna

    ReplyDelete
  55. My wife is also a SAHM who works full time from home while home schooling one of our children... I don't know how you ladies do it, but I do know that kids having a Mom at home is well worth whatever material things we give up to make that happen.

    As for quilting time... Schedule it. I quilt every Thursday night. It's just my night to quilt. As soon as dinner is cleared from the table, and the dishes are put away, I take over the area. If I didn't make the time, I'd never get it. Just decide on a night and DO IT. You'll be glad you did.

    Oh, and I am already a follower...

  56. Corinna,

  153. Hi

    I was wondering if you would like to do a link exchange with me.

    I am offering a free design as well for a machine cross stitch dragon. You can use my png file logo which is attached.

    The link for my free design is:

    http://www.sweetpeamachineembroiderydesigns.com/#!freebies/c1p56

    Please send me your logo as well as a short description of your site if you like.

    If you include a paragraph about my site you can use the following:

    'Sweet pea machine embroidery designs' specialises in 'in the hoop' designs. We sell designs for fsl earrings, bags and purses, machine cross stitch, stuffed toys and dolls, christmas, baby goods, bibs, redwork and quilting.

    Thanks
    Allison Nash
