Harvest Fob Finished!
I had a little issue with that shop I was going to for stitch-ins. When I bought the linen and pearl cottons for Reed's Stocking I thought the total seemed kind of high, but I didn't think anything of it at the time. When I got home I realized she charged me $3.25 each for the DMC Pearl Cottons. I looked on the internet and almost everywhere I looked they were $1.25-$1.30. So I emailed her and asked if that was right and she emailed back saying yes, that's the right price. No explanation as to why. And then I realized the linen was about $10 more than other places also. I understand trying to make up for overhead, but that seems like a lot. So I'm not sure if I want to go back there. It just a principal thing with me I guess. I used to own a small cross stitch shop in Atlanta, and I would've never done something like that. And I had to pay rent, etc. I wouldn't take it out on my customers. I just wonder how long she can keep that up without people becoming aware of how much more they're spending.
I found another shop online in Brandon called Roman Tales. They have stitch-ins on Friday nights, so I may check it out. From the picture it looks like a pretty nice shop. It's a little further drive though. Anyway, enough about that! After I do a little work for my brother I'm going to try to get this fob together! Write later!
