Creating a sewing movement one stitch at a time
Washington DC (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
CraftyStitches – Handmade quilted accessory maker has created a lot of buzz in 2012. The dot com (CraftyStitches.com) was launched September 1 featuring the Travel Jewelry Roll as its signature item. This Jewelry Roll has done continuously well on Designer Home Goods site One Kings Lane as a “Gift for her” and earned the title “Bridesmaids Gift of the Year” from wedding media group Adorii. WeddingWire - head of a large network of sites including WeddingWire.com, ProjectWedding.com, MarthaStewartWeddings.com, Brides.com and Weddingbee.com - announced CraftyStitches as a selected Winner of the prestigious WeddingWire Bride’s Choice Awards 2013 for Wedding Favors in Washington DC. CraftyStitches has also been placed in the Top Wedding vendors of 2013 by upscale lifestyle magazine Virginia Living.
The small business took a company retreat to celebrate these accolades and bring in the New Year at Atlanta’s international trade show AmericasMart. The team spent several days marveling over the seven million square foot wholesale center. “It was great to see all of the Gift & Design exhibitors. There was a lot of inspiration to be taken from both the permanent and temporary exhibits. We can’t wait to use all of the information gathered toward our own exhibits later this year” commented Owner Jennifer Michael. That being said, the small business has reported being ready to enter the world of international wholesale. Marketing Analyst Margery Waithaka added “I think we’ve gathered a lot of great momentum in 2012 and we’re ready to use that to fuel our success in 2013”. CraftyStitches is planning to exhibit at the Home & Gift Furnishings Market in July at AmericasMart. Other projected dates include the New York International Gift Market in August and the International Hotel Motel & Restaurant Show in November. The brand also plans to enter the Australian wedding market in late August.
