The two spent months researching, looking at buildings, and planning. Once they found the perfect building, they decided to pull the trigger and Busy Bea Quilters opened their doors on September 13, 2014. In the three short months that they have been open, they have already established an amazing client base of 1,300 fellow quilters, sewers, and crafters. They created a 22 person classroom, one of the largest in the state, and host classes, events, workshops, and open sewing. They are also the only Authorized Brother Sewing Machine Dealer on the Western Slope
In addition to the Starting a Business class and follow up sessions, Bea continues to meet with SBDC staff for Quickbooks training. Although Tracy runs a successful practice as an eye doctor, retail business was new to her. Bea, on the other hand, owned a successful catering and baking business in Denver 20 years ago. The entrepreneurial spirit is in her blood, but as she pointed out, laws change tremendously in that amount of time, and the SBDC was integral in making sure that nothing was forgotten.
"The SBDC “gave me the steps to take, and because of that, nothing has fallen through the cracks”"
Bea also added that anyone who has the desire to turn their passion into a business should “take all the classes offered through the SBDC and use them as a resource. If you are unsure or have more questions, keep asking!”
