    Re: Cataract Surgery went well

    Bubba I have to admit that I felt safer having them done separately. I didn't want to not be able to see out of at least one eye during the healing process. Also I kept thinking well if something...

    Re: Cataract Surgery went well

    Karen, really, don't be afraid. You don't feel anything. You're numb, what little vision you have during it you really can't see what's happening. Just a few lights and black dot blobs. They just...

    Cataract Surgery went well

    It all went well and I wasn't nervous.

    I have to say I'm amazed!! Even though my vision is still a little blurry because of the eye drops I'm so excited. The dr didn't think he would be able to...

    Re: Question about craft fairs

    FWIW, I just do the two very local fairs. It's a learning process and frankly you cannot always tell what people are interested in from one year to the next. The first fair I paid for one booth...

    Re: Question about craft fairs

    I wouldn't pay a website for a list of craft fairs. Well unless maybe if they were craft fairs that wholesalers go to but that's not something I'd want to get into anyway. Check your local State...

    I've made lots of them. They're very pretty and easy to do. Heads up though......don't forget to use a thimble!!! Save your finger tips :-)

    Re: How to get rid of back pain

    I forgot to mention that about every few years I go to the chiropractor for a few visits just to get my back realigned. He gave me a handy tip for neck pain which I periodically get from all the...

    Re: Craft Fair went well today

    jj, I would think within the first couple of days I should see fine. Although if I don't I could just keep my left eye closed and only use my good right eye LOL

    Re: Craft Fair went well today

    Anitamae, I don't seem to sell a lot of placemats for some reason (price usually $8 ea/4 for $24). Don't know why that is. But I like your idea of Birthday placemats, I can see where they'd sell. ...

    Re: Craft Fair went well today

    So it really doesn't bother you during surgery watching them poke you in the eye??? I keep thinking there will be some reflex reaction when they are doing that. My sister says no but I'm finding...

    Re: Craft Fair went well today

    Thank you all for the notes about the surgery. My sister said it was easy too so I'm not as nervous as I thought I would be but then I seem to be keeping myself at low metabolism. I didn't think...

    Re: Craft Fair went well today

    The microwave bowls almost totally sold out. (I price them at 8.50 or 2 for 15). If you have a favorite football team that everyone likes or local team then those always sell out. Make sure you do...

    Craft Fair went well today

    Today went pretty well. Although I didn't sell any quilts I sold a lot of the smaller items. Enough that I made the same about this year as last year. Some of the items I hadn't sold in the previous...

    Re: How to get rid of back pain

    I used Leah Day's back support for when I was quilting (stand up) and it worked very well.

    I discovered a salve I make myself when I was up in Canada. It works for most types of lower back pain...

    Re: Mid Arm thoughts

    I can't see why not although if you are doing a wide piece the stool would have to have rollers on it. I used a stool with my Queen frame when quilting narrower pieces. I prefer standing though.

  19. Re: Just a few days away from the Craft Fair

    I generally mark the baby quilts between $55-65. I keep them as simple as possible so I can make a little profit off of it. I use to do fancier borders but I stopped that to cut the labor costs. I...
  20. Re: Just a few days away from the Craft Fair

    I think it helps that people find the prices more reasonable so they're more inclined to sell. And you're right most have no idea what effort and expense goes into a "real" quilt. For the quilter...
  21. Just a few days away from the Craft Fair

    I discovered I was kind of low on Baby Quilts, down to only one. Don't know why I didn't catch that since they are pretty good sellers. So I added two quickies with fabric panels. I got these two...

    I too have a BlockRockIt with a Grace Queen Frame. I love it. It is the same as the Qnique as Caroline T says above. If you decide to get it just check beforehand who has the better sale price or...
