A Real Grownup Ad

Although we - Dyed & Gone to Heaven - have been in business for a few years now we have never actually advertised. It has been wonderful to grow just by word of mouth but the time had come to take the next step.

After a lot of research I decided to place ads in an American Magazine to perhaps reach different groups of quilters. The magazine I selected was Quilters Home which is a fairly new magazine which I think appeals to quilters who would like my work too.

Today I received my copy of the latest issue - September/October which contains our ad. It will be interesting to see what response we get. Unfortunately when we booked this first one we had not planned our trip but I am planning an incentive to help people to decide to order while we are away.

Must be a real business now. Do you like the ad?

Dear Lisa,

You must feel really great and the add is super nice and uncluttered.
