The Quilter’s Business Networking Event Day
This will be our first annual Quilter’s Business Networking Event Day. The purpose of this event is for quilt-related business owners to collaborate and help each other’s businesses grow! This will be held a day prior to the annual fall retreat being held in September. When you register, you can opt in for the Networking Event Day and you will be required to provide business information and a short description of your business. We are going to pack in a lot of fun and a lot of business into this one day! Space is limited so don’t hesitate.
At this event, each business owner will be given a short time-slot to present their business. This will be a time to ask for help and/or suggestions, share your goals and aspirations, and offer up ideas on collaborations. There will be a workshop on business collaboration, a workshop on marketing your business, business presentations, and time to just get to know one another and form relationships. The goal is to grow together!
