The Friday Blog Round-Up 6/15/12

First on the list today we have a question from the Fashion Incubator blog  – does fiber content affect fabric weight?  This interests me because fabric weight does have a bearing on the success or failure of a lot of projects.  Embroidery stabilizer is also sold in different weights and fiber content can make a difference there as well.   There are some interesting answers to the question in the comments on the post.

Second on the docket we have a post from the Retail Minded blog with some tips for selecting a store location.  If you have a brick and mortar store,  the location you select for the store is very important.  This post details some things you should consider before making your location selection.

Third to take a swing today is this post from Tim Andrews blog detailing some great golf accessories and gift ideas.  With Father’s Day on Sunday and all the golf courses now open for the season golf related products are more popular than ever.   This post details some fun ideas for giveaways for tournaments,  gifts or just things to have in your inventory to use to upsell your customers.

Fourth on the list,  because we all know I’m an Urban Thread junkie and they just do such cool stuff,  is a post about 13 design trends that can make your embroidery more awesome.  My favorite ideas are The Dubstep,  the Runaway, the Ransom Note  and  The Evil Twin.   That you are my sunshine design in Goth version just makes me laugh.

Fifth up is a list of 5 new books that every marketer,  or really every one should read.  I’ve heard of The Quiet and I think Steal Like an Artist sounds very interesting,  but all the books on the list seem to be books that could make you think in new ways.   I always have a list of books that I want to buy,  and these books are definitely going to be added to my list.
