Ficklesticks were born in a cozy garden-view basement workshop in San Francisco, California, in 2007 just before the mortgage meltdown.
I mention this because I was actually working as a real estate agent. Things were not going well at all. So I wrote a book about Ficklesticks and it was published by C&T Publishing, a well-known quilt book publisher in Northern California.
It seems so hilarious now that I look back on that time. My royalties amounted to less than one San Francisco-sized mortgage payment, all told, but it did launch me in a way. I started teaching at quilt shops, and selling at quilt festivals.
So, as you see, five people in Little Rock count on our customers for a living. We also support in part our suppliers, our web designer, our retailers, the US Mail, and our representatives out selling Ficklesticks to the stores. Thank you very much for your support.
