I am still trying to sell my big quilters table! I posted on Craigslist 3 times now. I think it would be a good table for a school or sewing shop as well as a artsy/craftsy  type with allot of space!

Spread the word if you know of anyone who needs a table. I really want to re-do my sewing space and this table is in the way of me doing anything!!!! EESSHHHHH!!!!!!!

Cutting and Sewing!

Uncategorized

I try to schedule out my week with each day with a task.
Mondays are cutting days. I spend my day cutting out bags and getting them ready for sewing.
Tuesday and Wednesdays are for sewing. I try and sew up all the bags I had cut out on Monday. Sometimes I can make up to 10 a day depending on which bag style has been cut out. After 10 years of making my bags, I don’t need to follow a pattern and have an assembly line style of doing the work.
Thursdays are for computer design work. I spend the day working on my sewing pattern designs. I have 12 patterns and will be redoing the cover images for all of these and tweaking the instructions.
Friday! is my fun day! I play around with new ideas for bags or practice sewing clothing. I have bought a Singer Professional 5 serger/coverstitch machine. This thing is the bomb! A smooth running machine that can do it all. I am having fun with it. I will post my clothing items for sale on my second etsy page. http://www.etsy.com/shop/myfavoritefrock
