    Congratulations on selling your stock out! Maybe the economy is finally turning around.

    Congratulations on having a great show! I've been doing craft shows for about 8 years now; started out selling hand painted items then switched to handmade personalized clay ornaments. Tired of those so this year I'm doing a combination of quilted and hand painted items. I'm glad to hear that you did well, maybe the economy *is* on the upswing finally!

    Sounds good to me. Taking your machine to work that is.

How is that for an idea for you?
    What a cute idea! Thanks for sharing.

    Glad to hear you did well...ask your boss, you never know.
    I used to be a casket embroider, did all my sewing there,ran an emb business behind the bosses bqck. When he ound out, he said i hope youre making good money. We gad batting there, velcro, fabric,a sewing machine that sewed 2,000 sts a mi.ute. took me a week to get used to that puppy. It was a blast.
