A pre-Christmas catch up!


Well what a busy few weeks it has been! Firstly, I had my first ever Market at the Epping Twilight Markets! I had an insane week of late late late night sewing, but I had loads of stock which was great. The markets went really well! I made my first sale before opening time, and as far as I was concerned, I could go home then  :)  It was great to meet people, and get some feedback on my products. I also got quite a few orders from people who liked a particular hat, but wanted a different size, or liked a shirt design but in a different colour. My fav request was for a train t-shirt, and an elephant t-shirt for twin boys to wear on Christmas Day! I love making things, but I REALLY love making things that I know people want!

On the competition front, we had 3 winners! The winner of the blog post was Anita Forbes (selected a sunhat), the referral award went to Sarah Irvine, who referred like a bizillion people! (selected a nursing cover), and the last winner was the random facebook fan: Jules Bee (selecting a bucket hat). I just love giving things away, and was tempted to keep going... But thought why not wait and spread the cheer over the year! So for 2010 Taylored4Baby will be having a monthly giveaway! What are the details?? No idea yet! But I will come up with something!

And lastly, this morning I discovered that one of my hats has been featured on an etsy treasury - Summer Lovin! Australian Treats! I am SO excited. Mine is the red & white Saffron Craig sunhat!

Well all of my orders have been made, and the last one shipped out today. So I guess it's time to finish off the Christmas shopping! Happy holidays people!!

  1. How exciting to do your first market! I am feeling what you must have leading up to it as I am about to do my first market as well. Nothing as big as the Epping Markets, just the local one at Pacific Palms! Your display looks great!
