The Glamping show 2016
After two years of trading, OUTDOOR SEWING SOLUTIONS is moving into new premises in November 2016.
Growth from the last two years has come from Caravan Awning and Tent Repairs and from my original trade of Sail making. Along with commercial work from from a verity of industries it has been very difficult to go out and promote our services with such small premises. Till now!
Now with 2’300 SQFT of premises in sight we made the decision to go out and market ourselves while looking at new markets.
One of the growth areas we have had has been with Yurts, Teepee's and Bell-tents or in one word Glamping. We already have Glamping clients with solutions and services of Servicing, Cleaning, Inspection, Alterations, Parts replacements, Repair kits and Repair tape and glues.
Working with our Web developer Independent Rural Media we came up with a marketing plan for the future and first on the list was to visit more show's to discover new opportunities and markets.

The Glamping show is in it's second year and this year introduced two brand new Glamping industry magazines, new products and mighty fine interiors and furnishings beyond what we are use to at home.
From open fire heated hot tubs to BBQ's that warm up with charcoal in 3 minutes OSS have found new partners and services we might be able to bring to Yorkshire. We already work closely with one Yurt company and with them we are now looking to develop our own bespoke yurt's bringing in our own design, cutting and contract sewing service's.
Much talk was also of the UK economy with the lower pound and many companies are looking at bringing manufacture back to the UK as it is now cost effective and they would have more control of design changes and quality.
We are talking to many other companies from the show and will looking at what services OSS can offer in the short term while we expand.
Long term the future looks bright within our current markets and adding the Glamping industry for OSS will bring even more growth.
Feel free to contact us with your next project. We will come out and discuss all options to find the right solution for you.
