Cutting Table Columnists

Welcome to 2013
  Moda Fabrics is a household name, but unless you are a shop owner you
probably do not know of United Notions. Between these two companies
alone there are almost
40,000 items.
Yes 40,000 that is not a typo.
How do we cover all these items in one blog? 
– Assemble a variety of people that handle the day to day happenings
– Invite  a few passionate moda-aholic bloggers
( there is no need for a self help group for moda-aholics. the only cure is to buy more moda)
– Add a professional writer
– Get the resident geek involved 
 – Invite guest bloggers
So with that being said, I wanted to introduce you to the columnists that will be sharing their expertise, wisdom, tidbits, techniques and new products throughout 2013. Let’s see how many of the 40,000 items we cover over the next year.
