Our Post-Holiday wake up call
By Phil of the Future at 12:11 PM
As the Holiday season draws to an end once again, we retreat to our everyday routine that is laid before us like a train track and realize there is no light on the path until the snow melts and Memorial Day arrives (unless your a teacher and are lucky enough to have spring break). But lets keep our mind off of the grind and focus on our hobbies or resolutions. For me, the resolution is to find time to learn how to sew better. Its true, I sell sewing cabinets which would lead most people to believe I know a thing or two about sewing, but this is not the case. I'm not going to pretend to be an expert sewing enthusiast who knows how to take some piece of fabric and make some beautiful lace curtain just to get you to buy a Betty Sewing cabinet. I do, however, think that learning some of the ins and outs will help me do exactly that - sell cabinets. So here is my goal: I am getting married in the Summer of '11 and my fiance and I aren't bursting out the pockets with money. So anything we can do to save a few bucks is great. So one of things I want to do to begin sewing is make chair covers to place over an ordinary chair so we don't have to spend extra $$$ to get nice chairs. Sounds easy enough, right? Well this is where I need your help, comment on this blog with any ideas of where to start or any websites you know of that can guide me. Or if you have a little story of your own to enlighten me please do. I'm anxious to hear what you have to say.
