    I am so excited :) :)

    I am part of a quilting guild here (Calgary Modern Quilt Guild) we meet every third Saturday of each month at a quilting store (Traditional Pastimes). I have become very good friends with the owner. The owner Bernadette has offered me a job at her store working Thursday evenings. I am so excited, I love working in fabric stores.

    My first job when I was 14 was working for Fabricland in Lethbridge, I stayed there for 2 years. :) I had so much fabric, but when I moved to Calgary I had to get rid of it all. :( So this is my chance to build up my stash again and see all the new fabrics coming into the store before anyone else does lol.

    I am so excited to be working there soon :)
    Hugs to all, and thanks for letting me share. :)

    I get the opportunity to work for money or fabric. I am still undecided. I am a nanny during the day so I do get a pay cheque. My hubby thinks maybe I should work for fabric because it is not cheap, and I can order it from her disributors by the bolt at cost, so I get it wayyyyyyy cheaper. lol!
