Y'all Come! Creative Arts Business Summit
Meet Morna McEver Golletz and
build your Creative Arts Business
What do you get when you take a newspaper food journalist with a life long passion for quilting and mix in the quilt industry's professional magazine?
Why, Morna McEver Golletz, of course, Editor of Professional Quilter Magazine and the Founder and President of the International Association of Professional Quilters, IAPQ.
And what do you get when you take this seasoned professional, our friend Morna, and add twenty years of in-the-trenches business experience to produce a business and life coach worthy of your time and attention?
You get the Creative Arts Business Summit in Dulles Airport, VA, an extravaganza of creative arts business and life mentoring.
Where will YOU be next March 29 to 31, 2012?
Sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee staring at your reflection in the toaster?
Or on the move with like-minded women, loving and learning to create and manage creative arts businesses for fun, and YES! FOR PROFIT!
A message from Morna McEver Golletz
Hello Creative Women!
When was the last time you spent time working on your business rather than in your business?
I'm the founder and CEO of the International Association of Professional Quilters where I have been helping women - and some cool men - create successful businesses from their passions in the creative arts for more than two decades. For several years I've been asked about an annual membership event, a place where members and other creative entrepreneurs can gather, learn how to boost their businesses' profits and connect with like-minded creative people. That time has come!
The 2012 Creative Arts Business Summit is designed to help you — the creative entrepreneur — build business skills. And, we all know that building business skills is just part of what leads to success. We'll talk about creating systems for success. We'll cover how to use technology and social media. Many of our members have told me — and I know first hand — that mindset is a huge part of the picture, so we've included that in our agenda. We're are bringing in outside speakers. And, because this is a member event, we'll have several member-led panels, so we can all learn from each other. And we'll have plenty of time for networking.
I'm looking forward to your joining me and other creative entrepreneurs as we work to move your business forward.
This is Morna! Down to earth
and ready to promote you and your business.

"The minute I heard about the International Association of Professional Quilters I knew I would join"
Membership bestows credibility. Being a member is a signal both to myself and the industry that I treat quilting as business and not a hobby. As a teacher, author and the sole-distributor of TAP (Transfer Artist Paper), I find the information packed Professional Quilter, tele-classes, support and services IAPQ provides invaluable in maintaining and growing my business. (And the membership pin is really gorgeous)."

"...the price of IAQP membership is a bargain"
"When I got the invitation to join IAQP, I didn't think twice. I took Morna's Boost Your Quilt Business Profits with Internet Marketing in July, and it was fantastic. Morna helped me understand the importance of putting my blog posts and customer newsletters on a regular schedule - and it works! Our site traffic has doubled and the number of unique visitors is up by 35% - with the bulk of the visits on our blog. In my opinion, the price of IAQP membership is a bargain - it's less than the cost of the Internet Marketing class. I'm very excited about getting the magazine, the guest interviews, and the coffee sessions at a single price. Now I don't have to 'decide' each time she has a session I'd like to attend."
