    wow - what a retirement stash you will be earning. Then on top of that to have someone else provide all, for the shop projects and they eventually end up in your home - how cool.!!!! Maybe the shop owner will let you take pictures of the projects on display. Have a great first day, be a great salesperson and have fun.. Wear good shoes !!!

    I have had a job like that for three years, I piece quilt tops and make table runners, baby quilts and samples of all kind, I work two days a week and I love it, I wouldn't be able to make very many quilts if I didn't do it this way, I didn't even know how to quilt when I started there, she is a great teacher, she started in her garage, then about 19 years ago built a shop, she has been quilting for 29 or 30 years

    There is a little country quilt shop i go to and she does the same for a couple of ladies in there. They are retired and love it, it helps her out while she is building up her businees, and it helps them out. A definite win win sittuation. I am like the others..........I will be looking forward to seeing some of the things you make.

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:
    Am I dreaming or did you just say that??? I want a job like that. Good for you (and your daughters). :wink:

    I saw this post and just had to reply even if it was days later. If you think about it, 26 yards of fabric would make two queen size quilts. So you could use that fabric up each month if you quilt a lot. If I didn't have those other annoying responsibilities like cleaning the house, babysitting grandkids (although I love them to death!) cooking, laundry. Well, you all get the picture, That fabric would be gone each month and sefish me wouldn'd need to worry about sharing the fabric, but I would give my quilts away when I finished. Isn't that why we quilt?
