    After being on this board and meeting all the nice quilters, I've decided that someday I want to own my very own quilt shop. It's just a dream of course, (well I think it is) but its been fun to think about. What do you think? Could I make this dream a reality? And of course it will need a name. My DH wants to call it "Material Things" . What do you think? My name is Leesa. I'm a country gal. Any more suggestions? (since its a dream, be inventive)

    Ok, add a big screen room for the guys who might drive us to the classes :) I was going to say beer too, but that might be more difficult. In Massachusetts there is a brew bar that has an open space with a rug and rocking chairs. On Tuesday nights the guys come in to have a beer and watch TV and the ladies sit in the rockers, have a beer (or whatever) and knit! I think its sooooo cool!!!

    Dream On!!

    My favorite quote is, "If you can't dream it, you won't have it."

    Yours is a great one. I did that. I got the shop, too. :-)

    Dreams can turn into reality if we work at them....keep dreaming, start working, and you may have your shop!!

    How about 10,000 bolts of fabric in that shop? That's a BIG dream!! :-)

    I think you have a great dream. While you're dreaming about your quilt shop why not do something constructive--take classes on how to start a business or something like that. I did the same in order to know how to go about selling the purses that I make. It was fun learning all about selling and marketing and I did have a measure of success. The hardest thing I learned (because it took a long time to realize) is that since it was my dream, if I didn't get off my butt, it would never have come true.

    Include a corner for kids, with toddler-safe toys to keep them busy so that Mom can shop longer (in peace).
