At the beginning of 2016 we hit the ground running with preparations for our first trade fair in Sydney and that busy pace kept going – but all in a good way!
We attended local & interstate design markets, had two pop up shops and showed at a second trade fair in Melbourne. By Christmas time we were ready to flop on the couch with feet up, and although we did a little of that, while looking towards the new year we decided petal & pins was elbowing for more space so two days before New Years Eve we decided to swap some rooms around!
This was a big task to undertake and included painting one room and some clever problem solving of what would go where – so we took a collective big breath and got stuck in.
My sewing room is now in the smaller room – newly painted ‘Imperial White’ and petal & pins has a lovely light filled studio overlooking the garden with a desk for me and one for Mr Petal & Pins, stock on shelves instead of in stacked boxes, a place to put orders together and most importantly a space to be creative.
2017 I’ve got plans for you too!
