Apatchy is a finalist in the Australian Small Business Champion Awards 2013!

Yippeeio-ki-yay! I am proud to announce that Apatchy Quilting is a finalist in the 2013 Australian Small Business Champion Awards. This prestigious national program of awards was designed to recognise the achievements of small businesses in the retail, service and manufacturing industries. Small businesses across Australia are invited to submit an entry and the selection of finalists is based on business history, marketing, customer service, community involvement and the highlights of the past twelve months.

I see it as a great opportunity to draw attention to the wonderful pursuit of quilting as well as to Apatchy and also to show that a small quilt shop can be seen as being run professionally and as an elite business . Of course it is because of you all that we have had such wonderful successes and now the pressure’s on to provide even better service in the future!

The winners are to be named at a gala presentation evening in Sydney on 13th April. Keep your fingers and toes crossed for me and I’ll keep you posted.

  1. Wow, congratulations Kaye. In the time I have been attending Apatchy Quilting with you I can definately agree that you offer an elite experience, one rich in sharing of ideas and friendships and being tempted by all the beautiful fabrics you consistently have arriving. Good luck.

  2. So richly deserved. It is the extra steps you take and the observations you make to cater for the needs of your customers which brings such rewards. The laughs provided during the stitchery groups have a lot to do with it, too. Mental Health time for all! Or as a one fellow stitcher recently described Tuesday mornings: Like an Enid Blyton (you) and her Famous Five Books (except there are more than five of us).

  3. This is so well deserved! So many of us look forward to your stitchery groups each week,they are full of laughter , friendship, beautiful new fabrics and products,and sharing of ideas. Thank you so much for your generous spirit and professionalism!
