The end of this month marks my one year anniversary of leaving the corporate world and venturing out into the uncharted territory of self-employment. It was a huge jump, but the closer I got to it, the more I couldn’t imagine going another direction.

But it was seriously scary! How would I…

Wise words from a very wise and talented woman!

SEEKING INPUT FROM RVA MAKERS:

Local maker, Christie Thompson (Richmond Thread Lab), and Peter Fraser, a local interior designer, are currently working on developing a brick and mortar space in Richmond to support the maker and designer community. They believe there is a wealth of creative skill in this City and many who wish to take their craft, skill, or hobby and turn it into a profitable business, yet feel there is a gap in the market right now for supporting this type of entrepreneur.
They are envisioning a place that connects people, knowledge and equipment to support these growing creative businesses and collaborative projects. They are in the beginning phases of understanding the specific needs of our community and are seeking your input. 

If you have 10 minutes, would you please consider taking thisshort, 10 question survey to help them better understand you and your work? If you are willing to participate, you will be included in a drawing for an Etsy Gift Card! In addition, they welcome your input and participation beyond the survey, just include your e-mail address in the last question of the survey.

Thank you so much for your time and feedback! Please feel free to e-mail Christie and Peter with any questions, ideas, comments or suggestions!

Stop by Quirk Gallery on Broad Street for all your Valentine’s gift needs! Including RTL’s newest pieces!
