    I don't know about you, but I don't normally use a saw and hammer when I quilt. Hahaha

    I know what you mean by the signs. There are many more for shops then for studios. I've seen several quilt signs at craft shows.

    my kids were 'on my nerves' the other day so I put a sign up on my quilt room door - AS A JOKE - that says BUG OFF :) They made comments on it while I was inside :)

    The old adage was putting your shingle out. That would be cute for a "cottage" industry.

    I've seen some wrought iron work holding out sign names.. and even quilt blocks hanging from the wrought iron.. but not anything quite as ornate as the sign photo you posted.

    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 :)
