Shame on me, I didn't write for quite a while ! I've been on vacation, just one week, but it was great ! The boys had a lot of fun in Plopsaland, it's an amusement park in Belgium.
When I came back the orders where piling up in my mailbox so no time to write ! Last week I received an package from Mia Bengtsson from Sweden, 25 copies of her new book Virka Amigurumi. It's so great !!! I already made a lot of Dutch crochet girls happy with a copy ! I also received lots of other great stuff, ribbons, buttons, books and Clover gadgets. I'm waiting for a new delivery with another kind of cotton. I would like to offer more kinds of wool and cotton in my shop. I'm busy to contact some wholesalers right now. More wool = more fun !
I also got an e-mail yesterday from Merel. She owns a shop that's similar to mine, La Silvia. She wrote me she's quitting. Here shop was the only one that sold amigurumi products, next to mine, so there is no more competion in the Netherlands at this point. We started or shops about the same time, I don't know exactly what she is gonna sell in her new shop, but Merel I want to wish you good luck on your new store !
Strange isn't it. I'm selling Amigurumi stuff for about 1,5 years now and I can see my clientele grow each day. I almost got 400 persons on my Hyves right now ! Quit a lot for such a little store. I never knew so many people would be interested in Amigurumi. Amigurumi is hot ! It's popping up at the strangest places. In the newspapers, in magazines, in TV shows. It's great ! Crochet is back again !
