Another Article For Seasons Of Wool! I Love Local Press!

Lots of happenings for Seasons Of Wool lately: Golden Globe press gifting, business cards in the swag bags at the Academy Awards, gifting to Cari Cucksey, making the top ten of Perry Entertainments best clothing brands, and a feature on beglamorous.com . Some days my head is spinning so much I don't know where to go next!

Along the way, I've been working on marketing and getting my name out there. I've met some wonderful people. Those contacts that you really need to put your name out in the community.  Joyell Nevins, a reporter at the Weekly Record Herald was my first interviewer, and has since written another lovely little article about Seasons Of Wool. I absolutely love local press! CLICK TO READ THE ARTICLE

PERRY ENTERTAINMENT: Top 10 Best Clothing Brands

So excited! I made Joshua Perry's (of Perry Entertainment) top 10 Best Clothing Brands! I'm right up there with Tommy Hilfiger, Maui Jim Eyewear and Rock and Republic Clothing! I guess I must be doing something right!

And here is what Josh received to review. He loved it and said he could tell it was beautiful and very well made.

Constructed from Cascade Eco Wool and Eco+, this bag is built to last. It is knit and then felted to create a sturdy, eco-friendly messenger bag, sure to become part of your everyday gear. You can see the attention to detail in every bit of it - from the heavyweight metal strap pieces, to the upholstery remnant lining. There are even outside pockets felted into the bag where you can easily store your laptop accessories, phone, or other smaller items. You will love this bag!

I'm Going to the Oscars!

I'm not going to the 84th Academy Awards (otherwise known as The Oscars), but my business cards are! 100 of my business cards will be included in the swag bags that will be given to celebrities at the GBK Luxury Gift Lounge. Never in my wildest, craziest dreams, did I imagine that my product would be going first to the Golden Globes, and then my contact info to the Academy Awards. It's amazing how joining one little organization can make all the difference!

                                                   

CLICK TO READ MORE ABOUT THE ARTISAN GROUP

That organization is The Artisan Group. The Group is an exclusive group of talented artisans that provides handcrafted products to celebrities and the press at Gift Lounges leading up to major hollywood events - The Academy Awards, Primetime Emmy's Golden Globes, MTV Awards, etc. This wonderfully supportive and knowledgeable group spans all sorts of fields - handcrafted jewelry, spa and bath products, children's tutus, apparel, toys, ceramics, purses, hand-poured candles, hand-bound journals, photographs, hand dyed scarves, fine art, handturned wooden pens, and more. It's an amazing source of information on sales, social media, marketing, and public relations.

I've gained a confidence in my craft and learned loads about marketing my work, myself and my business. What we get out of these events is really up to us and the buzz we create surrounding our involvement. I am super excited to see where this road leads!
