It has been pretty busy in my part of the world. I have been sewing stockings which seemed like forever and we finally had the Christmas bazaar. All but two sold- which is cool because now I can give those to my girls’ teachers for presents- filled with goodies, of course. The chest of drawers also sold- so I am happy about that too. We made bank for an orphanage just outside of Warsaw- which makes all the work worthwhile.
I will have a new artist display her works in the store, Laura Wasilewska,who does exceptional work- very detailed and interesting paintings. I also started a new project with a magazine website. I will now be doing tutorials every month for such things as painting a chair and other techniques.
This is the first for Christmas- the stocking tutorial. It is all in Polish …but you get the idea.
So my projects are on hold till after the New Year.
Some things that I will be working on will be sewing a duvet cover from Polish linen–I will do a tutorial for that but I also plan to sell custom linen duvet covers from my store. I have found two ladies that do exceptional work- so hopefully this will be interesting for some people in my area.
I intend to sell linen by the metre in store. This is just an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed. Polish linen is so lovely and priced really well so I will have a few rolls to offer those who sew on their own. I also plan to have about three or four rolls of Annie Sloan’s fabric- which ones I am not sure of yet.
Today I met with a colleague who has her ceramics displayed in my store- she is working on custom furniture knobs and now gift tags–again for the New Year.
So, this is what is happening in my part of the world. I hope everyone enjoys this holiday season and is able to spend it with those who are important to you.
Happy Holidays everyone!
