Two years ago, my family and I took over the leadership of this community as the new owners and publishers of the amazing Quilter’s Planner products. In this role we have gotten to be a daily part of the lives of quilters around the globe, and we are so thankful for the love and support you’ve shown.
From day one, you welcomed us with open arms and encouragement that brought us to tears more than we should probably admit! Every email, every Facebook group post, and every Instagram, YouTube or Pinterest comment was appreciated. Every sale was celebrated, and accompanied by a little prayer that you would find joy in the product our team was sending to you.
Because you are so special to our family, we wanted to be the first to let the Quilter’s Planner community know that after much discussion and more than a few tears, the Davis family has decided to shift our time and attention to other endeavors and place the Quilter’s Planner brand in the hands of someone who will bring it into 2024 and beyond.
With peace and confidence for the future of this company, I am happy to pass the reins to my good friend and our very own Quilter’s Planner graphic designer, Lindsie Bergevin. Lindsie has been working behind the scenes all along the way—from 2015 when the Quilter’s Planner was first conceived, up to our most recent 2023 issue and the digital PDF pages we offer in our online shop. She knows the ins and outs of this company like no other and shares in our vision to help quilters set aside time in their lives to do all the things they love.
We look forward to seeing how this community continues to grow and flourish under Lindsie’s leadership. I (Lorinda) have been a daily Quilter’s Planner user since 2016 and will continue to be a part of the community, using this awesome tool to bring clarity and direction to my quilting and everyday life.
Thank you again for the love and encouragement you’ve given us over the last two years. We are forever grateful.
Lorinda Davis and family
If you’ve ever looked at the last page of your planner, you might recognize me from the list of QP team members. If you haven’t made it back that far yet, let me introduce myself!
My name is Lindsie Bergevin. I live with my family of four in Boise, Idaho, where I work as a graphic designer for creative professionals. I spend my precious free time quilting, gardening, baking, and making all sorts of creative things with my family.
In my design work, I help clients find solutions for their businesses so they can continue doing the things they love. This type of mission is what I love about the Quilter’s Planner!
When I first started working with Quilter’s Planner founder Stephanie Palmer in 2015, and later with Lorinda when she took over in 2021, the ongoing mission of this business has always been to find ways to help our creative community make the time and space to do the things they love. I want you to know that I, too, share this vision, and am so grateful for the chance to continue creating these products.
I have very much enjoyed developing this planner over the years with these two amazing women. From first creating the Project Planning Pages to creating cover designs, and all of the parts and pieces in between, this project is one I look forward to designing every summer.
I have also admired Stephanie and Lorinda’s foresight and wisdom, especially as they have navigated this business through an erratic economy, a worldwide pandemic, supply chain shortages, and ongoing printing industry changes.
Despite the changes we have seen in the last few years, I am committed to faithfully creating the planner you know and love. I have several exciting ideas for the planner and accessories that I think you will really love! My hope is that I can continue to offer more ways you can customize the planner to fit your creative needs.
But I need your help! Before I make any final decisions, I want to hear from you!
Will you take this 5-minute survey to offer your feedback? Your opinion is extremely valuable to me and will help drive the decisions I make moving forward.
I cannot wait to get to know this amazing community even more, and I look forward to a fantastic and productive future!
As always, feel free to reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
