Neat Idea for a Boutique

I found the neatest idea for a boutique. I happened upon it while searching the web for something else. There is a church craft boutique in a nearby neighborhood this Friday night. In addition to having things for sale, they also have tables that a person can reserve for working on crafts. People will be doing scrapbooking, card making, one person will do her Christmas cards, and I reserved a table for sewing. In addition, local businesses paid for a massage chair and operator. People can reserve a spot for a Free 15-minute chair massage!

I don’t know anyone else who will be there. I usually don’t join events with complete strangers, but this seemed too good to pass up. I told a knitter friend about it, and she is going to come and sit by my table and knit. I have been wishing I could find some extended hours to sew uninterrupted, so this is perfect! I am getting tired of having so many UFO’s. I want to get a bunch of them done. Hence my need for uninterrupted hours of sewing. (I know, this is something we all need.)

I am making a quilt to order (sort of). I’m going to get paid for it! I’m nearly done with it, and will post a picture as soon as it’s complete.

Have fun on Friday night, Carol! That sounds like a fun idea, and a good way for people to learn a little bit about crafts they aren't very familar with.
Maybe you can recruit some new members for your little Sunshine group that you have locally! ;-)

I tried silk painting at a craft show. It was not uninterrupted! But it was a ton of fun and I made a new friend who was really interested in the process, came for a lesson and went on to become a good friend. Have fun.

Sounds like a wonderful opportunity to share your craft with potential new quilters. We will look forward to a full report afterwards!

I'm wondering what makes you think this will be "uninterrupted! hehe. But it does sound like a lot of fun. And if you are like me, the folks stopping and admiring what I'm doing is welcome interruptions, as most of the folks who will stop by, will offer compliments and make you feel good! And as Joyce said, maybe you'll meet new friends!

I suppose I was dreaming to think it will be uninterrupted sewing time. Ha! I'll report in later...
