    Red face home sewn vest

    I used to made lots of the cotton panel vest for a variety seasons & hoildays.
    I have a few made & am now placing on consignment @ a used clothing shop.
    Are these type of sewing projects no longer "in style" ?

    I have over (10) pre-cut & ready to sew child & adult Noah's Ark vest & was unable to sell them in the past.
    Looking for your opinion & thoughts
    Happy Sewing
    Linda

    I have seen quilters at shows and guild meetings wearing some lovely pieced vests. I haven't seen the panels you're referring to. Perhaps if you post a picture of what they look like when made up that would help us to comment?

    At craft shows I have noticed that vests rarely sell. Sales in general of sewn articles at craft shows are down around here. Wood items are not doing much better. Jewelry still seems to be doing well and hand made desserts and jams. Good luck with your items.
