Here we are playing Tabu on a great Thanksgiving evening. We had friends over, lots of food and games - a great time.We are very thankful for our family and friends. We also talked about how the reformation influenced the founding of America. We can be thankful that our country was a place that people could come and freely worship the Lord, and we can pray that it may remain that way.

What kind of job is this?

Here's another unusual job. We are making synth covers. There's a performance and it will be videotaped at a local school. The young children play synthesizers, so we are making covers so you can't see underneath them. Makes it look more professional. These took a while to figure out. Our mom taught us to miter, but she was thinking from the quilter's end working out. These needed to work in. A little different. So we had to make some changes.

Basketball Jerseys

Here I am hard at work resizing some basketball jerseys. They came too large and we are making them smaller for the coach. It's amazing some of the jobs we get. A lady who was checking out our shop referred him to us.

Birthday Party

Yesterday, we helped a friend of our with a birthday party.Quite a few little girls watching Dotty open her presents.
Then we helped the girls each sew a pillow. This is Crystal. Who's doing the work here? We've been giving several of them sewing lessons, so they don't do too bad.

It was a very fun party.

There it is. It can be seen from the road, but we haven't checked how well cars going quickly can see them.Here is one of the dresses hanging in the window.

This is a custom dress for a customer. We do adult clothing also, although toddler clothing is our specialty.
