What our clients say
As a woman in my 60's, I did not grow up with computers and never would have gotten one if it hadn't been for "The Quilter's Computer Companion," co-authored by Gloria Hansen. Never in my wildest dreams would I have ever thought she would be one day designing a web site for me. I don't think there are many fiber artist today that don't use the computer in some aspect of their work and Gloria Hansen showed us the way!Sandra Scott, quilt artist
I have been with Gloderworks for more than 5 years now and I can’t say enough good words about their exquisite service. Gloria listens and works to pull everything together in your vision of what you would like to say -in super fast mode. If a glitch appears along the way, she and Derry are just an email away and most frequently answer within the hour (it’s true, Gloria doesn't sleep!) The artistic talents of Gloderworks tags with their technical talents and will produce just what you’re looking for to speak your message to the world.Nancy Hepp, Gossamer Designs LLC
“Let’s face it, your business needs a website. The internet brings in more business less painfully than any other media. I thought I could maintain my own website. And, actually, I could — if I wanted to spend a huge amount of time on it, and was willing to have a look that was not-completely-professional, and could accept that my home-grown website might not show up correctly on all the different browsers in the universe. I did that for a while, until I ﬁgured out that I was spending too much time on the website design and maintenance, when I could be making money quilting! So, I looked for a professional designer. After looking at a number of designer companies out there, I was convinced that Gloderworks gave the most professional website, and Gloria knew what quilters would ﬁnd appealing. Gloria took my “amateur” website, looked at my existing graphics, text, and logos, and transformed it all into a very professional, appealing website for my longarm quilting business. As soon as the new website went live, I started getting comments from customers about the professional nature of the website, and the connected assumption that I had been in business many years! The design of the website keeps you reading, and ultimately makes better sales. A poorly-designed website will turn customers off, so they immediately “click” to another option. Gloderworks did a fantastic job on the design. Then, the content management system makes it extremely easy for me to edit the website from anywhere in the world through a web interface, always ensuring that my content is current with minimal effort. I can’t recommend Gloderworks highly enough — you should use them for your web designer too!”Jeanne Dorweiler
GloDerWorks does an excellent job of creating and hosting top notch websites! Gloria and Derry understand the importance of talking people through the process, no matter where they are technologically… and making it understandable!
From a creative standpoint, they are capable of laying out an entire site and developing it completely, or are willing to take direction on how you want it developed. They are good communicators and exceptionally responsive!
Fees are very fair and reasonable. We have been involved with them in developing two websites and will continue to hire them whenever we update or create new sites in the future. I would highly recommend (and have!) GloDerWorks to our clients and will continue to do so!
Working with Gloderworks to achieve our company’s website goals has always been a pleasurable experience. Gloderworks takes pride in personalizing their service and getting to know their clients. Gloria and Derry are extremely accommodating, enthusiastic to help, professional and quick to respond.
As our website is the first impression that many of our customers receive, it is important for our business to have a strong web presence. It has been comforting to have Gloderworks as a dedicated partner in the success of our website.
In addition, the Gloderworks team has always served as a valuable resource, offering creative, inventive and fresh perspectives.
I'm so glad I did the newsletter. I sold tons of stuff after sending it. It was very worth while.Karen Kay Buckley, quilt author, designer, teacher
Gloderworks has been my blog and web host for a bit over three years now. I went to them in desperation when my old host hijacked my domain name and would not let me move to another company. Gloria, Derry and Andrew not only resolved my issues but have been the best at taking care of my blogging and web needs. I'm just now growing to a web presence beyond my blog and they have done all the design work for my templates, a new shopping cart (coming soon), and all the weird tweaks I dream up. They are professional, reasonably priced, patient, timely (better then me) and creative! I'd recommend them to my best friend or my Mother! :o)Deb Harowitz, Sea Air Arts
While searching for a web designer, the GloDerWorks name continually surfaced on the web sites that most appealed to me from a design perspective. I had a long wish list with a few ‘must haves’ including the ability to personally manage my site updates and online calendar/class scheduling; the GloDerWorks team provided exactly what I needed. The entire process – from concept to delivery – was very smooth and professionally managed.
Gloria, Derry and the GloDerWorks Support Team are always quick to respond to my questions and the changing needs of my business. My website was an investment in my business, and GloDerWorks continues to provide the best value.
"GloDerWorks redesigned my website in 2005, providing a clean, artistic, exciting website! I like Gloria's rendering, using my quilt designs as the theme for the pages. Derry and his team provided me with an easy-to-use system of templates, and I can update the website myself, anytime, anywhere I have computer connectivity (including the ability to add new pages)! This is ideal for my rigorous teaching & travel schedule, enabling me to keep the online calendar and workshop details current. After the initial site was launched, Gloderworks helped me add a blog, newsletter and shopping cart functions to the site. I enjoy GloDerWorks' professionalism and attention to detail - they are responsive when I have questions and always provide good service in a timely manner." Jan Krentz, Poway, California - USAJan Krentz, quilt author, designer, teacher
Gloderworks is the best. I wanted a professional presentation of my work: attractive, easy to maintain by myself, excellent technical backup, all at a reasonable price. Gloderworks delivered on all counts and faster than I asked for. I could not be happier with my web page and the entire experience.Helen Remick
I hope you are enjoying my new improved website. Gloria Hansen and Derry Thompson did a really great job designing it for me and they deserve ALL the credit. My part was simply to answer emails quickly, mostly telling them I agreed with what they were doing, please go right ahead and use them!Robbi Joy Eklow, quilt artist, author, and teacher
Robbi Joy Elkow forwarded this note to us from Sharona, |"Your site is so great...I love the organization, the color, the expression of you! Gloria really has a way of doing that...capturing the YOU-ness of a person or a group. Gloria and Derry did our website last year and they have been such great support over time. Gloria's ALWAYS been famous in my book, and she and Derry have come through on more than one occasion ... We are so lucky to know them."Sharona Fischrup, owner New Pieces quilt store and gallery, Berkeley, California
When I decided to embark on the web, I chose Gloderworks because of the websites designed by them I had seen. They have created a magnificent one for me: well designed (handsome in fact), easy to navigate and set up for me to make changes as needed with ease. I’ve had many compliments on it to boot!Jane Hall, quilt artist, author, and teacher
Derry led the work in transforming the website of The British Dietetic Association and fulfilled our brief to bring us a site which had the style and functionality we were looking for. ... His depth of knowledge is apparent and instills confidence in me as a customer.Stephanie Judson, Publications Officer BDA
As always, thanks for your help. I think I've said it before, but you guys offer the best support and service of any vendor I have ever dealt with...and I've dealt with a lot. I was an Information Technology girl before I ran away and opened a quilt shop. Please feel free to use us as a reference if you ever need to offer references to a new client.Debora - Dragonfly Quilt Shop
The Gloderworks team offer a first class website design and hosting service at a competitive price. Professional, friendly and flexible, Derry and the team listen to what you want from your website and make sense of the technical jargon so many other website designers delight in baffling us with! Getting my website up and running was an incredibly simple process with Gloderworks and quick - within weeks of first meeting with Derry, my site was live on the web. I would recommend Gloderworks to anyone looking to invest in a professional looking website.Sophie, Perfect PA
GloDerWorks did a fantastic job of creating websites for my art quilt business and also for an artists’ group I belong to (Great Falls Studios - www.greatfallsstudios.com). They are easy to work with, very creative, and most of all, they listen to what you want and then do their best to make your ideas a reality. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a design team to create a high quality website!Cindy Grisdela
Gloria and Derry have changed our organization’s old uninteresting site to a vibrant one that is user friendly and welcoming. ... The best parts of Gloria and Derry’s work for us, are their accessibility and responsiveness … how easy it is to reach them and how quickly they see to our needs. … We would gladly recommend them to anyone looking for web successJohn and Edna Ball, Co-Chair, Team Parkinson, LA, California
It was a pleasure to work with Gloderworks in designing my website and hosting it. I enjoy the ease and convenience of being able to self-edit and update as well as track internet trafﬁc through the admin-section tools, some things I know other quilters with websites can’t do. Gloria, Derry and the crew are quick to answer questions and problem solve any concerns. Feedback is always positive on the appearance of my website so I am forever grateful to have chosen Gloria to do the designing. She makes me look really good!Erin Underwood
Gloderworks re-designed my website for me in 2007 and I recommend them highly! Gloria and Derry walked me through my options and I ended up with a website that reﬂects my company and my technical comfort level. I have a content management system that allows me to update things myself and excellent technical support with timely response - always. I love it!Celine Perkins, Perkins Dry Goods Patterns
I needed a website that would attract an international audience of neurosurgeons, neurologist and other health care professionals ... GloDerworks produced a superb website (2003 Quadrennial Meeting). It was informational, attractive, and exactly what I had in mind. They also created the websites for Rewired For Life and The Brain Tumor Foundation, which I am also delighted with. ...
I plan to use GloDerworks for future projects and truly consider them a find.
It is always a pleasure to recommend Gloderworks to friends and associates looking to launch or improve a website. They built my website in 2005 and from the outset have been a delight to work with. They designed a site that represents me and my work in a professional yet personal manner. My business has benefitted and grown immeasurably as a result.
The dynamic function of the site allows me to keep information timely and imagery current. As my needs have changed, Gloderworks has made suggestions about improving functionality and adding features that have enhanced the site.
Customer support and service has been prompt, responsive and usually has gone above and beyond what was requested. Specific questions or gaps in my skill level have been addressed in a supportive and informative manner.
It is my firm belief that my Gloderworks designed website is a major factor in my ability to run my business as a full time studio artist and free lance educator. Opportunities have come my way as a result of this website that I might not have found on my own. The site is clean, loads quickly, navigates easily and is (according to the email I get) a nice place to visit.
What more could an artist want?
I bless that website regularly. I have had so many e-mails/teaching jobs/interesting conversations as a result of it. Yesterday I had an e-mail from a grade-school art teacher who had had her class on my website to see it! And they loved it.Jane Hall - teacher, author, quilt maker
Just thought you’d like to know that we have another new donation that came in as a result of someone surfing the net—looking at all the Parkinson organization websites and choosing The Parkinson Alliance. This never ceases to amaze me. I promptly called this gentleman to thank him … He said our website was the easiest to understand … If we started to add up all the new donations we’ve gotten since you redid the website, I’m sure it would be well over $10,000 just in the past few months.
In addition, the Parkinson’s Unity Walk website is also attracting new people. That site didn’t even get noticed until you took it over. … You’ve made such a difference for us. …
I have had a whole bunch of people come into the studio over the last week and tell me that they found me through my website, and that it is beautiful! I always say thank you and take total credit. :)Marybeth Tawfik
GloDerWorks is on the top of my list of people who make me look good! My website looks professional and works on all browsers. I love the content management system, it makes adding photos and information effortless. All these updates appear in the right place, with the right font type, size and color. I have recommended them to many friends and will continue to do so.Cara Gulati
I am so pleased I chose Gloderworks to design and maintain my web page. From the beginning both Gloria and Derry were helpful and responsive through the design process to create a page that looks professional and is easy to navigate. It is easy for me to make updates and keep things current. They both continue to be there for me when the need arises. The end result is a web page that has steadily increased trafﬁc and sales.Carol Doak - quilt author, designer, teacher
I researched for quite some time and never found a good ﬁt when it came to a company to design my web site until someone recommended Gloderworks ….. Once I spoke with Derry and he knew exactly the look I was going for and how to incorporate my designs into the main scheme of things …I knew my search had ended and that I had ﬁnally gotten it right… Derry has always been patient with my constant barrage of questions… always at the ready to answer and explain when I couldn’t ﬁgure things out on my own… To this day should I need help with something or need an update … they dont let me down… I would recommend Golderworks to anyone who feels they aren’t computer savvy and dont feel they know what they are doing because they will always get the help they need immediately…. Along with their simple and easy web design and back end management Gloderworks customer service truly goes above and beyond…Jo - Neer and Dear Creations
Gloderworks was hired by Grand Bank to redesign our website. We found them to be very creative and responsive. During our initial design meetings, deadlines were set and all the deadlines were met prior to the original dates that were established. We found Gloderworks to be very helpful and creative. They helped us not just establish an outstanding website, but also a site that is very useful to our customers. They also made it so our site was easy to find on any search engine. Grand Bank and its affiliates were extremely happy with the services provided to us by Gloderworks. When the need comes to redesign our site again, Grand Bank would without question choose Gloderworks.Debra A. Morreale, Vice President, Grand Bank
We interviewed many developers before selecting Gloderworks. I am extremely delighted with our decision. Gloderworks redesigned our old web site and made it into something we are very proud of. They also made it work in the search engines, so much so that we could dispense with traditional advertising. It has been and continues to be an absolute pleasure to work with them, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.Andy Burrell - Managing Director Chiltern Contruction
I am really enjoying working on our new site - I am currently adding the next quarter's classes and putting products in the store. It has become my new fulltime job that will give me the flexibility to be home with my 10 year old son more during the summer. Our customers rave about the site and love being able to sign up for classes online. Derry and Andrew have been so fast to fix any things I find. We really appreciate the great service your company offers.Karen West - Thimble Pleasures Quilt Shop
Thanks to Gloria Hansen and Gloderworks, I now have a fabulous website, www.sarahannsmith.com. Everything you've heard about working with Gloria is true ... she's great, always making sure that I am happy with the work and that the site reflects my personality and work, always responsive and professional. If you're thinking of having someone do your website, I can recommend her and Gloderworks without reservation."Sarah Ann Smith, quilt artist, author, teacher
You and your team are outstanding. I can't praise you all enough for your consummate professionalism and creativity.Susan Schrott
A few years ago the members of Sheltowee Artisans, an artists’ organization based in south central Kentucky, wanted to improve their internet presence with a classy website. I suggested Gloria Hansen’s name to the group because, as a quilter myself, I had seen so many ﬁne examples of websites she had designed for quilters. I knew that because she is an artist herself, her eye for design combined with her computer skills would work well for the group. We were not disappointed. Each member has an opportunity to share photos and information about his or her work. The site is easy to update and it is the perfect way to attract new members and inform those interested in our artwork about upcoming events.
-- Jenny Perry, SheltoweeSheltowee Artistans Organization
Gloria Hansen at GloDerWorks did my web site and made it so that I can make all the updates myself. It really is easy to do and Gloria will answer even the most basic question with kindness and clarity. I cannot say enough good about her. I know that my business is just "small potatoes" but Gloderworks has given me as much attention as if I had been a Fortune 500 company. I really do appreciate it a lot. It is also time for me to update my site with a fresh look and she and Gloderworks will be who I am contacting.Paula Golden, qulit artist, Teacher of the Year
When approaching GloderWorks for help to establish our website we already had pretty good and detailed ideas on how the design and user interface should be, but needed professionals to implement them. Gloria and Derry quickly tuned in and our cooperation started with trading off between our ideas and ways and means to implement them. They were very forthcoming, ﬂexible and creative in ﬁnding such ways and means, while at the same time providing a fruitful professional sparring with us.
When we later wanted added functionality or features to ensure that our website was in line with our needs as they evolved, this pattern repeated itself and we can only say that it is a pleasure working with GloderWorks.
I created my own website years ago but the web has quickly outpaced my bare-bones skills. I also wanted a very professional looking site - a necessity in today’s marketplace. I knew what I wanted and I needed a company that could turn my vision into reality. Knowing their already great reputation, I hired the team at Gloderworks to create my new website. I was not disappointed.
What I was most happy with is that they patiently listened to my needs and vision and were quickly able to hone right in on what I wanted. Being able to communicate with your web team is most important. Gloderworks was easily accessible and always helpful. I love what we ended up with.
What a relief it was, after an extensive review of quilters' and artists' web pages on the internet, to find Gloderworks to help me build a website I could be proud of; a website that is dependable and one for which I can change content at will. Since I will never be a computer whiz in this lifetime, to have Gloderworks' constant support and encouragement was a joy; no question was too big or too small, and every concern and question is solved so promptly! I've recommended this wonderful company to numerous friends and acquaintances who are looking for help designing and maintaining a top notch website. Thank you, Gloderworks!Margaret Miller, teacher, author, quilt artist
I have had Gloderworks build 2 websites for me, and both times it was a painless process. Their content management system is easy to learn and trouble-free. I log in and make changes almost every day. Derry and Gloria are always very quick to respond to any changes that I need them to make. We have had many compliments from customers on our site design and structure. I highly recommend their services!Karen West, Thimblepleasures
I initially did my own web site creation and maintenance, but my site looked amateurish and I fell way behind in keeping it up to date. Then I found Gloderworks. Gloria’s design work is lovely, and the site’s built-in content management system is very easy to use. I now spend more time concentrating on client work, less time on website maintenance, and don’t waste money buying unnecessary software. Even better, new clients have found me through search engines-that never happened when I did my own web work!Sue Bowers, Quilters Finishing Touch
