Well, my sales are up!! I reached $2900 yesterday. I have a lot of orders to fill, then i'll be back to stitching what I want and hope to come out with some new items for the sale I have scheduled to teachers on October 30. Sara will be in town and will be speaking to a group of teachers in DC. They saw my bags and stuff at her Aug 7 fundraiser and invited me to come with her. So I am gearing up to work on my inventory for 30 days prior and will sell everything left over on my my Etsy web page.
I love Etsy. I have been ordered some supplies from people on there. If you haven't looked for supplies on Etsy, you can get some great deals. I ordered zippers from K and C Supplies . They're great zippers, much nicer than the ones you can buy in the fabric stores around here and they cost less. K&C will deliver them very quickly.
If anyone has any suggestions of what I could make that these teachers might like, let me know. They ask me if I could make something they could use in their classrooms. I'm clueless. I can't think of anything.
