2017 By the Numbers

01 January, 2018

Cary Quilting Company had an amazing year!  We thought it would be fun to review our year by the numbers:

320

Our total collection of fabric at the end of 2017 contains 320 more bolts than our collection at the end of 2016.  That's 4,800 more yards, or 172,800 inches more fabric! All in all, we have over 35,000 yards of fabric in the shop!

 

1,144

We welcomed 1,144 new readers of our emailed newsletters in 2017!

 

1,715

With our move in May, we added 1,715 square feet to the shop space, with 1,800 more square feet to come with our expansion in 2018!

 

716

Our Inventory Manager Lori has been busy! At the end of 2017, we had 716 more items in our total shop inventory than at the end of 2016.  We now have over 4,600 different items in inventory!!

 

483,397

Carrie quilted 483,397 more square inches in 2017 than in 2016!  That's the equivalent of 24 king sized quilts. If that was just one quilt, it would be a 12 foot by 280 foot quilt! 

 

66,431

Number of online visitors to caryquilting.com in 2017 (9,581 more than in 2016!)

There's only one YOU - and you and our other great customers and friends are the most important part of all of those numbers above.  Thank you!  

Happy New Year!
