    I got a phone call from the owner of the quilt shop where I live & she wants me to work for her starting this Monday using her long arm!!!! Can I tell everyone how excited I am? Well, I'm VERY excited. Just what I've been wanting to do.

    Oh you lucky girl! Many years ago I worked part time at Montgomery Ward in the fabirc dept. I used to make all my clothes as I am very short. I always spent my whole check on fabric. So don't so what I did, unless you just can't help yourself!!

    Just remember.... It's for fun, it's not a job. Hate to see you get burned out working on others quilts.

    Btw: have I told you how jealous I am?!?!???

    Congratulations! Will you be able to stand the temptation? If not... will you at least get a discount on your purchases?

    When my youngest started to school until she graduated I worked at Minnestota Fabrics (now Hancock) We could keep a running tab until payday and then it would be deducted from our pay check. I had to really be careful not to over spend. Lots of wonderful benefits: made model garments for the store and then they became ours, great discounts. Even made her prom gowns as model garments. Great savings.
    Wish we still had one in our area. I used to drive an hour away to one in Ohio (Hancock) but that has since closed too.
