Irish Quilting Named 2010 Top Exporter

We won!
This month we were chosen from more than 100 robust businesses in Ireland and awarded the 2010 Exporter Award.
The Wicklow County Enterprise Board promotes the development of enterprise in County Wicklow by focusing on the creation of enterprise awareness, encouraging new businesses to startup and supporting new businesses to grow. Our contribution is vast as a small enterprise in Ireland's economic development and its role in building a vibrant and successful indigenous business sector.

Equally important, Irish Quilting's entrepreneurial role promotes an optimistic and positive message for the future and puts quilting on the business roadmap of Ireland!

We attended an awards luncheon where Fergal Quinn (on right) presented awards. Mr. Quinn is a funny and astute business man who currently hosts Retail Therapy. He advises who to do business correctly. Wise man.

The award is wonderful; geesh, it adds more pressure!

Speaking of, off to finish content for Issue 4!
