WIP-rugettesHi folks. Today is a bright and cheery spring day.  I am feeling much better and busy working on those rugettes.  All of them have been hemmed now and the sleeves are being made.

Today’s job is to sew the sleeves on the backs of the rugettes and put the hang tags on them.   Made up tags for them yesterday.  Time to print them off and attach them to the rugettes.  Need to check to make sure I have enough doweling or bellpull hangers to hang them.  Getting closer to taking them to the shop…

I had an interesting chat with a friend yesterday.  She is a silk ribbon embroidery artist who has to import the ribbons she likes.  She claims they are very expensive.  I am looking at options…  I dye silk anyway, so it might be worth experimenting…if I can find bulk prepared for dyeing silk ribbon.  I think I found it.  Will have to wait and see.  In order to get it at the price I want it I have to buy it wholesale.  This is the first time I actually used my business tax number to sign up for wholesale prices.  We’ll see if it works, and if it’s worth it.

I checked online and I suspect she is buying hand painted silk ribbon.  Interesting looking product that might be very time consuming to reproduce, but we shall see.  Might be worth looking into after my May sale…
