Okay, I can't think that far ahead, but I can tell you about the next year. Just don't hold me to it...
As the economy starts to improve (crossing fingers here), we should be coming out with some new ribbon designs in the fall. Some of the same designers, some new ones...
Quilting weight fabrics are still going strong and we plan on continuing to pick out new and old designers as their collections are released. We've definitely had to scale back on our offerings in the last year, but hopefully by 2010, we won't have to be so picky.
I hope to get another canvas collection out of Jessica Jones next spring. Nothing definitive in the works, but that is the earliest Braemore is ready to look at anything new.
We'll continue to expand jcaroline home!, adding new fabrics and new products. We've already had several requests for slipcovers for different Ikea pieces, so let us know if you need a slipcover for your furniture that isn't currently offered.
We also have plans to launch another website in the next couple of months offering sewn gift items and baby items. My hope is that this site will provide another outlet for our ribbons, fabric, webbing and other items we are buying in bulk so that we can continue to expand those offerings on jcaroline creative! as well.
But of course, as I've learned in the past eight years, we had better be ready to change plans at any moment. Of course, whatever we do will revolve around fabric, ribbon and creative projects. Thanks for hanging with us for these eight years and I hope we get to celebrate another eight!
