I posted here to looking for an assistant?? Well,I had lots of applicants from around the world (thank everyone who applied) but no one applied who lived nearby. Then in the middle of the night I had a 'light bulb' moment........sitting on my telephone table for the last three years was a phone number of a friend whom I first met when she joined our evening group in the early days when I first opened the store.
Bright and early the next morning I gave her a call and last week Gillian started working with me, Gillian will be making sure I am on track with my deadlines, ensuring that the wholesale parcels go out on time and that a million other things actually get done.
So, you ask who is the young lady on the right of the picture??? This is Emma, Emma is the whizz kid on the computer and has been busy working in the background updating all my patterns, books and brochures. Emma comes from a very creative family and I dont think it will be long before we have taught her to stitch.
