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.
