Michelle here! In case you missed the big announcement yesterday, we shared our updated website news with everyone and the launch was a big success! We experienced no glitches - which is a HUGE feat in technology, so we are very happy. Our new baby skipped crawling and walking and went straight to playing hopscotch and chasing rainbows!
I thought I would post a blog today to share with you some of the improvements on the website. I will apologize up front for the poor quality of the photos in this post, but the only way to get photos of the website was to use my phone and take shots of the screen. If you've ever done that, you know it takes grainy photos with poor lighting and wavy lines. But, at least it will show you where to find many of the new things we've added to the site.
The very first thing you will notice when you log on is how we've designed it with a fresh, clean, happy, bright layout and color scheme so it would be a cheerful place for you to browse around. We made it much more user friendly and intuitive. We added many features and new pages to give you as much information at your fingertips as we possibly could.
We also made the site mobile friendly - easy to shop from your chair in your jammies from your smart phones and tablets now!! After all, that really is the best way to shop!
Now for a more detailed look at the site, and here comes those grainy pics!
Want to see who we are and what each of us do? Click the About Us link and you will see photos of each of us along with a short bio. One of the new things we are going to start doing is sharing with you some on each of our passions. You will notice that although we are all one family, each of us are very different and have very different hobbies. We thought, why not share that with all of you?! Many of you share some of our other loves in addition to quilting and it would be fun to build a community around everything we enjoy! You will start to see things from me on Scrapbooking (any Scrappers out there?!), maybe some organization tips or ways that I use my planner. Hailey will pop in to share her love of crochet, fitness, healthy eating and recipes, and some awesome mom hacks! Here is where I will circle back to Hailey's Category in the store. She will be selling many of her beautiful crochet creations, so if you are looking for something handmade with love to give as a gift or spoil yourself with, check out her category. Right now she has the most adorable baby booties (perfect for baby shower gifts!), but she will be adding more things all the time. Lily will even jump online some and give you her perspective as an almost 5 year old learning to quilt and sew.
We have an amazing, talented team that works with us. It takes a village to make things happen and we want you to meet the women who help and support us. We are so thankful to have these wonderful friends. They are a blessing to all of us.
The last area I'll share with you today is in the Fabric section. We have added the wording
"1/2 yards" next to the quantity box to make it easier to choose the correct quantity when ordering. 1 = 1/2 yard, 2 = 1 yard, etc. You will notice two other things in the picture, though one is hard to see. Right above the Quantity Box and price throughout the website, you will see how many of that certain product we have in stock. The other thing you will notice from this photo is Kaffe fabric! We have almost 100 bolts of different Kaffe, Brandon Mably, and Philip Jacobs in stock just waiting for you to take home! Be sure to come check it out!
That's a quick walk through of some of the changes, but to see it all, just log onto: TurningTwenty.com and look around. We hope you enjoy it and please leave us a comment and let us know what you think!
