    I own a quilt/fabric shop here at the Lake in MO. My wife, along with a friend started it 18 months ago. My wife passed suddenly last january, so our partner and I have continued the store, in her memory.

    I wonder if business has been as slow for others as it has been here for us in the last several months. Fortunantly, the shop is in my home, so there is no overhead that I have to pay each month.

    Our web site is Quiltedoaks.com, if you're interested in seeing a little about us.

    I look forward to talking with you all in the future.

    Sorry for your loss. I know how it is.
    My LQS is doing well, but they have two gammils that they longarm with. They also do a lot of activities that pull customers in.

    So sorry to hear about your loss & what a great honor you are carrying on for her. As far as the economy is concerned, I think all quilters are looking for the best buys out there. There is a rumor of fabric going up because the price of cotton has risen. We're afraid that fabric is going to be priced beyond our reach. So specials, specials, specials are what we are looking for. Hope you keep your business a float. Best wishes
