The Nettie and Friends Show and Sale Is READY!

What a wonderful group of friends arrived at the Egg and I to 'hang' the show today! It is up! We are ready! I'm excited and looking forward to seeing everyone at the Opening Reception on Saturday, where we'll have EVERYTHING out for viewing and sale! I have a carload of boxes just waiting to be unloaded! See you then. Thanks to everyone who helped out today! You are the best. (And Marsha, that fireplace IS just what was needed!)

We are done with pricing!

The Pricing is Done!
Yep, everyone of these boxes are FULL! There are so many wonderful, beautiful, delightful, fun items. Thank you one and all!

If your items came in after the Oct. 25 deadline, I might not have gotten photos on the web. Sorry about that... my 'real' work has been pretty demanding (paperwork, conferences, actual teaching!) Well, that and a cat that is on the mend from having a toe amputated (poor guy) has taken all available time and energy.

Once again, my thanks to the pricing committee. Whew. I couldn't have done THIS without you! (Let alone tried to figure out pricing in our present economy.) We did have discussions about our goal of actually selling the items and what 'the market will bear' in the current fiscal fiasco.

Jean, Marsha, and I have been experimenting with the luminaries... we're trying to figure out exactly how much kitty litter we will need for 150 bags... well, if we're asking questions, exactly how much lighter fluid will we need in those clicker things to LIGHT 150 candles in the dark on a December afternoon? Those might be questions for another day. Right now, I've got to get to work!

Have a wonderful day, week, year, life!
Be happy! Nettie

Let the Pricing Begin!

Well, the pricing committee met and started tagging the items you so generously donated! We had a little difficulty not getting distracted by all of the beautiful objects, textures and fibers we were fondling. Ahhh. We are really under way here! Again, thank you to everyone who has contributed - either energy, time or items.

Oops, I meant to take a few photos, but got so totally focused on pricing that I spaced out my camera. Geesh. Maybe next time!

November Already????

So just when I think I am 'clearing the decks' I start a new project. That ever happen to anyone else? Geesh. I was digging through my fabric stash and found some things I was going to have ready for this year's show and sale. Due to a lack of impulse control they are now in a half-finished state! I'm going to kick it into high gear and get things done this week (including school conferences!) So, if I don't answer the phone, or many emails, it's because I'm putting the pedal to the metal and burning through thread on my Singer Featherweight!

Send out those postcards for the show! If you need more, let me know.
I'll be getting a pdf file out to people AFTER the election!

VOTE tomorrow.
:-) Nettie
