Hi! My name is Sheila. I made my first quilt in 1983. I have sewn and quilted off and on for years but I am certainly not advanced. Most likely early intermediate. I LOVE fabric and collect tons of it. I spend a fair amount of time in my studio looking at the fabric and patterns...planning... but then I get busy with other stuff.
One of my favorite quilt designers is Kim Diehl. I also enjoy Sue Spargo and Pat Sloan. I guess I am eccletic.
Last year I tried my hand at selling quilting supplies at quilt shows around the country. I went to 6 shows between March and August. I loved my inventory (very colorful, whimsy and fun, as well as some country fabrics) and even more I loved all of the fantastic quilters I met. Business was getting better but then I developed a medical condition. I can't travel like that any more. Now I am working from home, making beautiful things and I plan to go to 2-3 craft shows a year and sell on-line on ETSY.
BUT, I have all of this inventory from my business. I can't decide whether to open a super discounted on-line store until the inventory is gone or try to sell it in bulk to another vendor, shop owner, collective... Any ideas?
