Embroidery Talk Has Moved!

Friday Blog Round-Up 1/21/11

Friday Blog Round-Up 1/21/11

First up today,  Black Duck Inc weighs in with “3 2010 Trends We’ll See Again“.  I’ve always been rather fond of the tonal embroidery or tone on tone decoration myself.  I think it looks really cool.   I’d never heard of Laser Etched Polar Fleece,  but that sounds like a cool trend too.   Apparently my word of the day is cool.  Sorry about that.

Second on the docket today, is yet another post from Kathleen Fasanella.    This post is called  “I am stupid and so are you” and it’s about the fact that imprecise or incomplete marketing messages don’t get the job done.  As a marketer myself,  this post really rang true to me.    She makes a good point.

Third on the list is the announcement that NNEP has a venue and a date for Embroidert Mart South.    This show will be on July 29-30, 2011 in Houston.  EnMart exhibited at this show last year and it was great!  I’m looking forward to exhibiting again this year.

Fourth up today,  Marie and Graham are asking “how do you overcome designer’s block“.  Because I’m a writer, I’m also adding writer’s block to the question.  If you do creative work,  how do you keep the ideas flowing and avoid getting blocked.  Please take a moment to stop by Marie and Graham’s blog and share your ideas with them.

Fifth in the batting order , it’s Robin’s Edge, with a post about what she calls “secret squirrel type business profiles”.  I think that may be my new favorite phrase.  Anyway,  the point of her post is that you have to make it easy for your fans/followers/friends to connect with your company.    If they have to wait for you to friend them or allow them entry,  they may move on to someone else.  It’s a good point.
