FSBO . . . oh dear!

Well, the time has come to pick up our stuff and move west . . . about an hour and half from here.  My dear husband, Matthew, is a teacher and has driven this route DAILY for the past 5 years.  So we recently took a little road trip to scope out the areas close to his schools.  Now that we have little Greta the school systems have become a big contender in this search.  But, I think we have narrowed it down and I hope to tell you more about it soon.

In the meantime, I've got to get our house in order to get it on the market.  Our game plan is to try selling it on our own first.  Suddenly, I am in high gear . . . it's like spring cleaning and purging and organizing . . . organizing . . . organizing.  A quick little ad on Craigslist this week while I get my fact sheets and contract together for the official FSBO.com listing.  I'm thinkin' an open house in March!  So much to do and need to work in the studio, too, for the upcoming Rural Society Spring Sale in May.  Oh dear!

[Big sigh] Our little home has so many memories, it will be sad to leave.

My real estate staging assistant . . . such a good lil' helper!

Sewing Class Schedule Winter 2013

Have I ever mentioned that I teach sewing classes in our hometown sewing shoppe, Sew to Speak, in Clintonville (a little section of north Columbus, OH)?  No?  Well, call me "silly" for not thinking of posting the class schedule here before.

Beginner's Apron:  February 7th 6-9PM (Class Full)
Beginner's Apron:  February 14th 6-9PM
Art Student Tote:  February 21 & 28 6-9PM
Parfait Dress:  March 7 & 14 6-9PM
Lady Grey Coat:  March 21 & 28 6-9PM
Contact me or the shoppe to register.  Space is limited, so don't delay.

If you prefer one-on-one sewing lessons, I am also available for private lessons in your home or my studio.  Another fun idea is to have a sewing soiree . . . gather your friends for an evening of sewing.  You pick the project and I will bring the supplies.
