    Me neither but some days I need a garbage dumpster.

    Seriously, I have not seen one for a quilt shop but that type of sign would be nice with a quilting logo and a sewing tool of some sort.

    Ohhh.. I just had a great idea!

    Have someone (your hubby or a local craftsman) use a jig saw or scroll saw to cut out a nice LARGE silhouette of an older sewing machine. Ck out clip art for design etc. Detail paint it up in charming colors and darling detail. Then hang a sign from that.

    I can visualize this VERY EASILY. Google "vintage sewing machine clip art......and you'll see some fun examples.

    A cute one would be a super large pair of scissors with the sign hanging under it, a sewing machine or quilt block with a sign hanging from it. Maybe someone could custom make one ??

    Ok you all, my husband actually has a woodshop set up in our detached garage ( for personal use) and my sewing room is above his. That sign is actually from his woodworking magazines. It is metal but meant for inside as a cute door emblem. I just have always loved it and wanted one with a sewing machine on it to depict my work space. Thanks for the suggestions. I was hoping to just pick one up but I might just have to get my sweety involved!

    Ask your sweetie if he would be interested in making a couple of them... I know I would love to have my 301 copied into a sign!!

    Sounds like a business venture waiting to happen! Signs are a great idea.

    You should make a quilt with your name and hang it off a yard stick :)
