HeartStrings FiberArts
Dealer Newsletter - February 12, 2011
Dedicated to advancing the art of knitting through innovative designs based on tradition in updated techniques.

Dear [fname],

This newsletter issue brings you ideas and resources that you can use for your own marketing and customer goodies.

You are welcome to use any of them in your mail-outs or in-person with customers (e.g. informal knit groups that meet at your shop). Some have accompanying photos, and you are welcome to use those as well. Let me know if you need help.

The goal is to provide some fun and/or educational little bonuses to your customers that you can take advantage of with little effort on your part. If you wish, feel free to incorporate them in your writing style to make them your own. Or to talk about/demonstrate them in your group sessions. I just ask that you acknowledge Jackie E-S of HeartStrings as the source, as that gives you an opportunity to remind your customers that you sell HeartStrings knitting patterns, too.
