The Novi Show

The American Sewing Expo, aka, the Novi Show, is almost here. I will be going of course. I've signed up for a pre-show workshop on Thursday- Luscious Layers, taught by Laura Murray. I should finally learn what to do with all the paintstiks, stencils, foils, etc. I've been collecting. Friday, I plan to cruise the booths, and maybe sit in on a show or two.

I'm off to make Vogue V8427, view C

Quality Alert - Mad Men

I love Mad Men! This is the show from AMC about the advertising business in 1960. It looks wonderful, and I love the stories.

Watch it.

We're from the Government and we're here to help

The Government had a good idea with the "Do Not Call" list; they just didn't think it through. It appears that telephone and cell numbers that were registered in the earliest days might be expiring. Move over Government; I'm here to help. Go to the National Do Not Call Registry website. From there, you can check the status of your listing, and re-list, if necessary.
