Many of you saw I launched my Indiegogo campaign last Friday. I have gotten support from so many people in so many ways. Over the weekend I had a few people point out little things that would make the campaign page and video even better. I try to accept help and criticism in any way so embraced these suggestions. I am very happy with the new video and flow of the campaign.
Something else happened that I didn’t even think about, businesses picking the Phoenix Down option! Once I thought about it I realized what a genius move it was. Here is a comic book store and a video game company that will have their business name embroidered on a quilt forever. It will be displayed at all of the conventions I am at for an entire year, and the person that wins the quilt will have those companies staring them in the face every time they look at it, all for just $40.
I am very grateful for all of the love and shares I am getting for the campaign. As of this moment it has been shared 320 times on Facebook. That doesn’t count the number of times it has been emailed or tweeted. That is a lot in just 5 days! I already have a commission for a Queen Sized quilt that I can’t wait to get started on. Every little thing people do helps. Part of me last week worried that I wouldn’t have a successful campaign and I may have to stop going to conventions. After such a great weekend I know I will be showing quilts for years to come.
If you have any ideas about additional rewards, ways to promote the campaign, or just wants to chat, feel free to message me on Facebook or email! I am always around and always like to talk to people.
