Oregon Open House and Training

Team Oregon at Saturday's Training Meeting
This past weekend (May 10 and 11) was a special weekend in Oregon as company co-owner and head designer, Dana Brooks was in town to help our top consultants in Newport, OR do an open house for the public (on Friday, May 10) and training for all the consultants in the area (on Saturday, May 11). Thanks to all of you Oregon consultants and customers for your support!

Friday night was the public open house at Mo's Annex on Yaquina Bay.  It was a beautiful night,  so those people attending with their kids and husbands were able to let them wonder around the docks and watch the fish filleters do their magic, while the sewers and quilters traded ideas with Dana and the hosting Oregon Daisy Consultants (Cindy, Jennifer, and Tess.  Thanks, ladies1)  and all the new brand new conslutants attending.
Cindy, Jennifer and Tess had put together a beautiful display of My Lazy Daisy finished quilts and projects, and many people just stopped by off the street to see what was going on.  Dinner was a buffet of Mo's Clam Chowder , Seafood Sliders, Salad and an assortment of homemade cookies.  Families came later and joined in.
Saturday was really a great day for training new Daisy Consultants.  They all  got a lot out of the great presentation. 
  • Cindy did a Power Point, bulleting important elements on how to do your first show, from Hosting it yourself to having a Hostess, then all things that come after.  
  • Dana then did a Party for them using only the 99.00 Starter Kit and the then Basic Bundle Kit.  It was very educational for all.  
  •  Jennifer gave an outstanding presentation on sharing the My Lazy Daisy opportunity with others.
  • There were great questions and answers exchanged.  
  • We had lots of gifts and a great boxed lunch to offer. 
Activities we did together:
  • We decorated our own Name Tags with a variety of Zebra Duct Tapes.
  • We made My Lazy Daisy Pedal Pusher Pin Cushions
Things we gave out to our training meeting attendees:
  • Decorated notebooks full of information and for taking notes
  • Daisy Pens
  • Bound Book with a June '13 to June '14 Booking Calendar and complete Ready Set Grow emails, for their easy perusal
  • Small nautical canvas gift bags with 1 yard of green Zebra fabric, $1,000,000 Mints and a nautical bracelet
  • Clear plastic quart containers of 5" squares of My Lazy Daisy fabric lines, lip gloss and mints.
  • Dana also gave out charm squares.
All in all, both days were a great success!

Here are some GREAT photos from Saturday showing all the fun:

  1. Thank you all for a wonderful, fun and informative time. You really fired me up and boosted my confidence (who me???). Dana's party demo was so energizing. She needs to bottle and sell that to us! Also thank you for all of the goodies to all of you.
