The Story

When I had my children I looked everywhere for a baby quilt and couldn't find one anywhere so I decided to learn how to make baby quilts that were shop quality but still handmade.  Now 12 years later I have my own online shop and my baby quilts are shop quality gifts.  I wanted them to be made in Ireland because that was and still is important to me, hence the name Made In Ireland Quilts

Best advice given

Maybe not in business but 'just keep swimming' is my motto.  I keep making quilts even when my sales get stagnant but eventually they will sell

Business day

Don't procrastinate!

Mind yourself...

I don't take it personally if someone doesn't like one of my quilts or thinks it won't sell.  I have had this happen on a few occasions and you need to make lots of different types of quilts not just the ones you like but the ones you think could sell or the ones you think will reach a different customer.  Lots of different ones! So I mind myself by not caring what people think about certain quilts.

Best advice outside business
Proudest moment

When I sold my first baby quilt from my website.  I knew I always wanted to do this.

Funniest moment

Doing craft sales!  People touching my quilts! No thank you

Just keep working, even when business slows down, just keep making and keep working at it.
