    I was visiting a tiny quilt shop not far from home and the owner said she needs someone to work one day a week for...you guessed it FABRIC!!!! I can sew while I'm there, too. DH thinks it's a great idea but wonders why I need more fabric.

    I think you have died and gone to Heaven! I know I would be on cloud nine if someone told me that. lol

    My (not so) local Joann's is always hiring, I have thought about going to work part time its just to far to drive daily and still make enough money for fabirc!

    There's another lady here that works two days a week in a fabric store and her job is to be sewing when people come in so that they can see the machines in action and to demonstrate them. She makes things to be displayed at the shop or for herself but yeah, what a job!

    Will do. She also said I can teach any classes I'd like. Even tough I am very new at this I think there may be some things I can teach. (For a major % of the tuition.) I am a teacher after all.

    How nice, just so you don't end up owing them money at the end of the work day. Enjoy your new job.

    LOL! You know that's a given. I figure I'll still be ahead since I'll be buying fabrics anyway. I think I can start this week so I will keep you all posted.

    This job opportunity sounds like a WIN WIN job for you! With the price of fabric, it sounds like you're getting the better end of the deal! Lucky you!

    That is awesome. I fear that it will turn into a full time job and then you won't have time to quilt. Although, when I was employed, I had more time to do fun things than I do since I retired. I think it's all about time management - there is absolutely no time management in my retirement.

    One word of caution. How much fabric can u use.....notice I didn't say want. My sister and her quilt group did work for fabric from a fabric company and they very quickly said stop stop stop....."we have more than we can ever use". While it sounds really good there can be a downsize. Find out what fabric you can get for the work. Is it on sale fabric or latest arrival. The most expensive or......and how much per hour of work. If you get the equivalent of minimum wage and the minimum is say.....$6.oo per hr and you work 6 hrs. that is $36.00 of fabric and you work 3 days a week.......do the math before you agree.
    Also get an agreement for time of teaching. How will the class fee be divided. Again, at a per hour rate. This is similar to bartering...Also, what are your state's tax laws about this type of work. Be careful and get all the details before you start.

    Another point.....you have to treat this as if you were paid so there will be no misunderstanding in the future.

    Thanks for all your advise. We are hoping to move to Australia within the year, I hear that fabric is very expensive there so I am thinking ahead.
