Sewing Stuff

A few weeks ago I decided that I wanted to start a sewing class.  So I wrote out a big long thing and sent it to SOME GREAT PEOPLE who in turn sent the word out.  I got some emails of people interested and even had to split it into two classes so that people wouldn’t have to drive too far.  I think I have 7 people interested.  But today, today, I received the first application and payment.  YIPPEE!  I was imagining starting the class and all, but for some reason I didn’t really think about the money coming in.  I suppose it was kind of strange that I was surprised by it.

Yesterday I went to Walmart and bought about 90 yards of fabric for $1 per yard.  It was a great deal and I couldn’t resist! 

I am also starting a website which ANNE is designing/creating for me at this very moment.  Right Anne?  *cracks whip*…But really, she is very nice to help me and at a reasonable price too.  I’m hoping this website will help me make more money, and I’ll let you all know about it when it is up and running.  🙂

    Yes…I'll have Mr. Carr take a picture of me in "the skirt"…I WEAR IT ALL THE TIME!!!! By the way, I think you should market it as "The Coie Skirt". It is my all time favorite, most comfortable item in my wardrobe.

    Hi I am glad to hear that you got your first payment today!! Yippee!!! And how much fun to buy fabric that you like!! The first time that I ever bought fabric was for my wedding dress!:) (Of course, since I want to take your class, you know that I DID NOT MAKE IT!!!!!

    I look forward to the mystery of the up and coming new website! I hope that God blesses it richly!

    That is a mighty good entrepreneurial idea, Coie!

    I think someone should also do a basic car class for homeschoolers as well. This would be great for both boys and girls that are of driving age (or soon to be)… covering things like changing oil, changing a flat, jump starting a battery, etc.

    Hey, if you do it then maybe you can offer a discount for those who sign up for both classes. 🙂

    That's really great that you are able to do that. I am just learning to sew, and I don't think that I would make a very good sewing teacher.

    Good luck!
