Ye Olde Forest Quilt shop has moved across the street more or less. Solicited to help, we had fun nonetheless while tolerating the heat, the work, the chaos, the meal breaks, did I mention the heat?, the concrete floors, the water--lots and lots of cold water. :Slowly things came together for the most incredible sale one could imagine. Batiks, grunges & other Moda bolts all on sale for ridiculously low prices plus an extra % off for end of the bolt. Patterns, Anita Goodesign CDs, needles, books, thread, so much more I can't begin to cover it all.
Fabric I picked up includes
AH! The sale has been extended all week
Dec 05-16: I love doing this every year. Above is what I have in my stocking. You can see all the 12 days at Ye Olde Forest on Facebook.
Upgraded Cutting/Ironing Station
Nov 05: Kelley (Ye Olde Forest Quilt Shop) gave me an ironing board (he made several for the shop) & the table that fits perfectly where my old one did. So much better. So much sturdier. Much better cutting surface. YES!
Nov 09: I imposed upon some neighbors to help get my table inside & the legs back on.
Nov 10: Time for pictures of course.
Nov 11: Decided to try to fit the old work table into the sewing room. Knew it would be close. Turns out I like it so much better. Moved the small desk into the living room beside the new work table.
A Bit Of History
Ye Olde Forest Quilt shop is a dangerous place indeed!! I just love it there! I got everything i need to finish of several projects. I picked up fabric for a J&L Grinch quilt and a couple of irresistible projects for myself. Enough said. Pictures are more fun!! What my work table, living room and closet look like this evening.
On October 13th with a $14 check, I registered my business name with the Ashe County Register of Deeds and registered online for my NC Sales & Use Tax. Just like that, I am officially in business! For NC customers, this means I will be collecting sales tax on thread & batting as I resale it to you. No tax on services though! With my business registration on the wall in the quilting room & my new business cards, I find myself in a place I never imagined nor hoped for!
Life is an adventure with a plan of its own to be sure!
