Farmers Markets

I had so much fun this summer with all my farmers markets. They are a lot of work but so fulfulling. I love how people love my stuff. With each sale I am still amazed that someone wants to buy what I have made. I actually started jumping up and down a couple of weeks ago when a customer wanted to purchase a couple of my bags.

I actually covered that bike seat and basket. It's adorable. It was made for my display at a local Apple Harvest event (hence the apples in the basket). I wanted to let people know I do custom sewing also. I don't mind doing custom sewing - it's not as fun as just going into my sewing room and creating whatever I want but I do it. What I don't like doing is alterations. Ugh. I don't even like to do my own! And it's stressful. If I mess up, I mess up a whole garmet. But it helps during the slow times to make some extra cash. So I do them.

I have some exciting news to share but it will have to wait until next post. Stay tuned.
