Looking to trade… Can you sew?

Posted by on March 26, 2011 with 12 Comments

Thank you so so much for all of the wonderful offers to help me!

I appreciate it so much and am happy to report that one of our wonderful readers is creating fabulous curtains for me!

Okay this may be my most random post EVER! But I’m gonna give it a try! For my birthday I’m finishing my office! I’m really, really excited about it! One thing I really want and feel will be the icing on the cake is curtains! I know exactly what I want (see picture below) and I’ve searched high and low… through Google page results 1 to 10 and I can’t find them anywhere. Finally it came to me that I was going to have to make them. My only problem… despite owning a sewing machine, I don’t actually know how to use it. So this is my proposition. If you own a sewing machine and are really good with it and would like to score $250 worth of products from the shop, then I’d love to trade with you! You make me chevron curtains (just like the ones above) and send them to me by April 15th and I’ll give you $250 to spend on non custom products in the shop.

If you’re interested and want to talk details, I’d love to hear from you! Send me an email!

Are you ready for more? I'm determined to prove to as many photographers as will let me that you can have passion, profits and time for a great life.

I create six-figure photographers, and I'd love to teach you, step-by-step, how it's done. This is happening for photographers from all over the world who are just like you. Let me prove just how wildly successful YOU can be!

    Don’t know if someone has beat me to the punch, but I would love to trade services with you! I am an interior designer (and aspiring photographer) and am in the process of completing a renovation for my daughter’s daycare where I JUST got through doing multiple sets of window panels for the lobby. I have images that I can send to show the level of craftsmanship. Each of the panels was inner lined as to prevent the room from getting so warm during the day as the warm southern Georgia sun is less forgiving during the summer months.
    How many panels do you need constructed? Would you provide the fabric? Would you also care to have the panels lined?
    Please touch base if we may be able to assist one another!

  2. I wish I could say that I sew but, sadly, I cannot. Although I do have a sewing machine. :)

    Hi,
    This blogger actually painted her chevron pattern on a white panel
    http://daveandjoi.blogspot.com/2010/01/office-makeover-part-2-whats-that.html

    That’s why you can’t find the fabric anywhere! If you are looking for smaller zigzag fabric, check interior mall. type in ” zig zag” make sure to include the space in between the words.

    I have the “zig zag bella cozy” 6 yards that I can sell for $40 total (I accidentally ordered this color- my computer monitor color was off!)

    Good luck!
