Well done Blue Patch for being on the leading edge of the curve and thanks for promoting Laura’s Loom. I have to say of all the groups I’ve joined (and left) over the years, the only group that I feel really cares about my business is Blue Patch. You’re always finding ways to help promote your members in a way that I’ve never experienced with any other marketing group. It makes being a member more than worthwhile, so thanks for that too.

Blue Patch is designed to help everyone: our members, communities and the environment’
