    I say go for it!!!
    When I did this for a short time it was fun,you'll get to meet alot of other quilters and share ideas and see their projects (just like being on the Board).
    If I would have been paid in $ it would have been $8 an hour plus I got a % off of the fabric or anything else in the shop. :D :thumbup: :D

    Even though I recently retired from teaching I was asked to come back and substitute. I said of course. I wore my button that said
    "I work for fabric".

    I agree with you completely, in principle. But explaining that to the IRS might be a little more difficult...

    I am almost jealous, :) so very happy for you. My sister in law back home does the same thing in WA. state. Has a lady work for fabric and she can sit and sew. It has been a great working arrangement for the two of them.. I think it is 1-2 days a week. Have so much fun in the candy store, Blessings Cheryl :)

    I wonder if the IRS would even have to be involve from a legal sense. For one thing the fabric has already been account for, paid and stor owner pays taxes on it. A store owner is also allowed to use so much of the materials to put on display (as in quilts) and use as a write off. Seems I asked my sister in law that question. So to work for material, that is already taxed? (I would think would not be a problem for the store owner) Plus if someone is injured in a shop, shop should hae coverage in that area??? ( I really do not know) second guessing,
