Happy Christmas blog post.
Here is to another Covid, I mean Christmas shutdown, the third one in our small business. Wow! What a time this has been for small and large businesses these last few years. We have managed to keep going due to our wonderful, loyal customers and new customers alike who have continued to support small businesses with purchases and classes both online and at ATQ HQ.
We also need to mention the help from the national and local government during the last 2 years. Regardless of your political views, the present Tory government has put cash where its mouth is and that has also helped keep us afloat. Yes, the vast majority is in loans that must be paid back, a weight around businesses necks but without that option, we would not be here to offer you the range of products including over 950 fabrics, tools, and notions you need, (notice I said NEED and not want) and classes in ATQ HQ.
So, that is it for now, on behalf of Amanda, Katherine, and I, may I wish you an absolutely wonderful Christmas time, and here’s to a better 2022.
I seem to remember saying that last Christmas….
