Crowd Funding for Quilter's Comfort Markets Launched

On March 14th, 2013, after many starts and stops due to computer and data related issues, Quilter's Comfort launched its first crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo. The Morning Comfort Market and the Thursday Evening Farmers Markets are a collaboration of Patricia's Wellness Arts Cafe & Quilter's Comfort Teas and Local Food Bloomington.

The most commonly asked question about this project is "Why"? The answer is really very simple. As a start up business, Patricia's Wellness Arts Cafe & Quilter's Comfort Teas wants to attract more customers. More customers mean potentially more sales. More sales means that the shop will keep there doors open.

In a time of so much flux, we think it important to have many small, locally owned businesses open, and flourishing; because the owners of these businesses live in this community, and spend the bulk of their resources in this community. If larger stores are not making their bottom lines, they tend to leave the community, whereas smaller businesses look for means to stay local keeping their homes and businesses in tact.
