    I worked in a quilt shop once before (about 6 years ago, when we lived in VA). I LOST money on that deal---every time I got "paid" I owed her money for all the fabric I wanted!! :oops: I hope this works out better! :lol: It may not be the "ideal job"

    Show us your quilts!
    Cathy-I know that the owner brings her featherweight to work and sews when things are slow--I bet if I am making shop samples she would let me sew at work too. I promise to take pics of any samples I make and show them to you all.

    This quilt shop is in a tiny little town about 20 minutes from me. She told me they were looking for SEVERAL people to each work one day a week. SOOOO--if you are in the area I bet you could get a job too!!!

    I would love it if every one could come and shop here. It is a darling little shop.

    Lisa---I think my daughters and I are going to be doing a lot of fabric petting in the future!!! :wink:

Both of my daughters are excited because they know I cannot use 26 yards of fabric a month-so I will be sharing with them too.

    The owner also told me that she would like for me to make shop samples sometimes. She will give me the fabric and the pattern, I will make the top, she will supply the batting and backing, send it out to be quilted, and when she is finished using it in the shop as a sample--I get to have it!! Isn't that a sweet deal????

    I am really excited---one day a week for all that fabric. What more could a girl ask for? :lol: :lol:

    What a lucky lady you are. Give my right arm for that kind of job, well not literally lol or I couldn´t sew at all.

    I am soooo envious. The only downside I can think of is that you will have more fabric, and less time to do anything with it!

    I had to laugh at the notions and books. That was funny.
    You are really lucky to have made such a good deal of a job. I would love working like that too. And ... it is only one day a week. I am lovin' that part.

    I'm in Tennessee now, so no doubt the commute would be a killer... I used to live in Summerville, and before that in Ringgold. There is an awesome quilt shop just on the outskirts of Ring gold.. that's where I got my quilting bug re-activated...lol...

    I worked at JoAnns many years ago, and I kept asking if they wanted to just exchange fabric for my check...I noticed that after I quit that I had more money than when I was working 4 days a week... :roll: Enjoy your new job~ :mrgreen:

    Congrats Marcia! Couldn't happen to a better person!Lori
    Sure, you can be me one day a month--just not on a day that I am spending with my granddaughters!! How about the day I need to clean my house? Or do the laundry? :twisted: Oh, I bet you mean one of the days I am working at the quilt shop, huh? Sure---I'd be happy to give you one of my days. :D You can even stay with me since the commute is a little far.

    And thank you for the congrats, Lori-that was really sweet of you to say that.

    I thought about that too! But, I figure just one day a week won't cramp my style too much.
