I closed my Etsy and Artfire shops this week, hopefully just for a month or two.
I'm having some health issues and have had to close shop several times since November.
I'd sewn like a demon in October and November to participate in a couple of craft shows and have a nice full shop for the holidays.That didn't work out I missed the show and had the shop closed most of December.
When I was feeling better in February I decided to try out Artfire and put some things in there. Just a week after that I got sick again and finally found out the problem. I'm going to have some surgery next week and will need a month or two to recover so I won't be around much. I miss it already . I have so much beautiful new fabric and bunch of new designs, but they will have to wait. I'll keep you posted, hopefully by summer both the economy and I will be in better shape.
