Auctions, Pow Wows, & Open House

Last week I went to an auction with my cousin, who was interested in some of the antique sewing  machines.   The lady who died was a big seamstress and had lots of fabric & a few sewing machines, including a huge quilting machine.  It was the first auction where I stayed almost the entire time, and of course the sewing machines were almost the last things to be sold, so we were there 3.5 hours and we literally froze!  
 Saturday, I went to a Pow Wow, in Berryville, VA.  It was really interesting and a lot of fun.  I got to see lots of Native American dancing & music.  The ceremony was very nice honoring our country as well as the " warriors" of our country (otherwise known as veterans) .  They had lots of vendors, and also a Gourd festival.  I loved the Christmas ornaments they made out of the gourds. I was also determined to find a poncho, and the very last one I tried on, actually fit me and didn't swallow me like a big balloon.   

My Annual Open House is only 2 weeks away and I am getting excited!! I hope many of you who are local to Martinsburg are able to come. I've been sewing my little heart out and fitting it in every chance I get.  I plan to have a door prize every day, and lots of great specials, and free Christmas gift bags while supplies last.  I am also making some gift bags to sell out of fabric.  Some are drawstring bags, great for jewelry, candy, small toys, pens and note pads you can put gift cards in them.  I'm also making some larger fleece lined  bags that you can fill with larger items.
I will have lots of pillows, sports pillows, kids pillows, aprons, (men's and women's, kids, toddler's and teens, some Christmas aprons as well) Also, infinity scarves, make up bags, pouches, cross-body pouches, handbags, messenger bags,  totes, place mats & table runners etc. See something you like and need it in a special fabric?  This is the time to order those items and I can have them ready in time for Christmas!  So come and just browse, eat some snacks, or do some shopping!!  Pictured below are a few of my newest items!   Here is the link to my Facebook event page for more information :
