Then on Friday, they made an announcement at the Quilt Market in Portland, Oregon. We were going to go, but then I was having a little bit of trouble breathing last week so my mom decided it would not be a good idea to travel. I think TJ was a little nervous about it too because it is so close to his wedding.
So instead my dad took our picture in the front of the store just minutes after the announcement...
Later that night after we did some sewing, something very interesting happened. My mom went in the kitchen to turn off the light and she noticed a piece of fabric was on top of Kristen's frame...
That's the fabric that I made her pillowcase in. There was a boy in the store earlier with his mom. He must have done that. It made my mom and me stop though to say thank you to Kristen. She made our store happen. I know she is watching over us and is making good things happen. We love you Kristen!!!
and now for the biggest news...
I am just about ready to open my very own business. I am going to be selling my quilts on Etsy. I make all of my quilt using charm packs. Plus I have Down syndrome. So we named it Down Right Charming. I LOVE this name. How about you? This is my business card.
and here is the back. I am going to also go out in the community and do some craft shows. I used to love doing that with CEVEC when we made jewelry.
Would you like to see some of my quilts?
Each one has a matching pillowcase too. It will be an option for the buyer.
They are not all for girls. We have some for boys too.
OK. I have to get back to sewing. I will let you know as soon as we we go live on Etsy. My shop name will be Downrightcharming.
