Embroidery Talk Has Moved!

The Friday Blog Round-Up 1/13/12

First off today,  I have to point out Erich Campbell’s great post about how he created the awesome cover art for the January issue of Stitches Magazine.    This cover and the embroidery are both works of art and it’s interesting to learn about how it was done.   From what Erich says, it took a staggering amount of work but, in my opinion anyway,  the end result was well worth it.

Next up,  just because I’m kind of on a scarf kick at the moment, plus it’s cool,  we have this scarf tutorial from Urban Threads.   The scarf is very pretty and it looks like a good accessory for almost any outfit.

Third on the list is this post from Seth Godin.    Basically,  it tells us all to stop waiting for better times or better opportunities,  to seize the day and make the most of what we have right now.   You’ve got to love a blog post that has this quote in it “It’s never too late to choose optimism, to choose action, to choose excellence. The best thing is that it only takes a moment — just one second — to decide.”

Fourth at bat is this post from John Morgan about managing your brand.   This is really a common sense sort of post,  but it points out something that business owners often miss.  Your brand isn’t just your collateral material or your website,  it’s everything you and your employees do, whether you’re on company time or not.   It’s a good reminder that very little we do nowdays is invisible and we need to be aware of that.

Fifth on the list is a great post about the value of Pinterest for brands.  I have to confess I haven’t spent a lot of time, in fact almost none, on Pinterest, but after reading this post I’m going to investigate it further.   I can definitely see the value of this site for embroidery and sublimation companies and it certainly seems worth a closer look.

Finally,  to wrap things up,  we have another post from The Bloggess.  It’s an older post,  but it resonated with me,  and I figured it might with some of you.  This time she’s talking about allowing you self to pursue the not sensible option, and what can grow out of that when you do.  It’s a great post,  and it inspires me to think about what my “red dress” would be and why I’m not allowing myself to have it.
