This one is short and sweet – and for shop owners only!

Checker Distributors Newsletter: checkernewsletter.com
The Checker Newsletter is uploaded every Monday morning and includes three articles on a variety of subjects each week. You can sign up to have the newsletter e-mailed to you by visiting the site.
This website is only available to shop owners after you sign in using your Checker account number and I.D. This site hosts over 300 videos and class lesson plans. We went to the best! Top vendors and designers in the industry such as Eleanor Burns and Judy Niemeyer show you how to demonstrate and teach classes. Why not go directly to the source?
But we were missing something! We needed a way to put this all together for you. How do you market and display everything in your shop? What are the new trends in our industry? How do you host an event in your shop? How do we share a wealth of information about a specific product such as batting, threads, wools, etc.???
Welcome to Checker Live – a 15 minute (more or less) internet show hosted by Karen Montgomery and yours truly. Karen owns a quilt shop, sells sewing machines, designs fabric, rulers & patterns, and writes a column for Fab Shop. I write the Checker newsletter, am on the Creative Grids design team, write books for Landauer Publishing, write a column for Fab Shop and USED to own a quilt shop. Between the two of us, we know just about everyone in the industry and have been quilting for over 50 years! And, we never agree on anything!
So log into CheckerYou the first of each month to see the latest episode!!! Enjoy!!!
