I always love this time of year with the days drawing out and lots of signs of new life if you just take a moment to enjoy the nature all around us. The appearance of spring flowers is one of my favourite simple pleasures!
At home I’m looking forward to opening windows and letting the fresh air in but this year most of my spring cleaning will be occurring here at the tea room and sewing cafe – starting with a new name!
It feels like perfect timing to start the next chapter in my journey of running my own business. The new name brings with it an exciting new website and the launch of my blog (this being my first ever proper blog post!).
So I expect some of you are wondering why the change of name?
I put a lot of careful thought into the name Cordial & Grace and love it dearly, so whilst that name is being retired the values that stand behind it remain the same. To create a cheerful environment that people enjoy visiting and a calm friendly atmosphere where customers can relax, whatever else is going on in their lives.
However that name was created before the business was up and running when I had lots of exciting plans but no idea of how things would work out. Now that we have been open a couple of years I am really pleased that we have established ourselves as a destination for both the cafe and a place to sew. I’ve chosen the new name of ‘Café Sewciety’ to reflect that and to give us a clearer identity – particularly on the high street. Hopefully this will attract new customers through the purple door to discover our delicious homemade food, quality teas and coffees as well as the opportunities we offer to sew or get crafty.
So the values, decor, homemade food and friendly service are all staying the same, it’s just a change of name, oh and as it’s spring you may see a fresh lick of paint and new aprons in the next few weeks too!
What have you got planned for this year’s spring clean?
In the next few days we’ll be migrating to this new website, updating logos and changing signage but in the meantime we are open for business as usual and our phone number stays the same. Please give me a call on 0117 970 6259 if you have any questions.
I’m excited about starting this new chapter and getting stuck in to the new opportunities it brings with it to help the business grow – from new shoots we will hopefully see Café Sewciety bloom!
Enjoy the Spring!
