Last night, instead of a presenter, the guild held a “second chance boutique”, which is basically a garage sale where guild members can reserve a table and sell stuff they don’t want anymore. I’m clearing out stuff, not buying more stuff, so I was doing my best not to shop. And, I was pretty successful. I spent all of $5 and got 3 yards of fabric and a pattern.
Willpower! Believe me. But, I had the best time walking around and visiting with guild members. We chatted and talked and because several members of this guild are also members of the guild where I spoke, I got lots of positive feedback about my talk. It was fun. My only regret is that there was a guy there…yes a GUY at guild meeting, other than me. At first, when I tried to speak, he wouldn’t meet my eye. And, that put me off. Later, he became more open and comfortable, but by that time, I was headed out and didn’t stop to talk. I should have.
Greatest temptation? A black featherweight from the 30’s or 40’s with all the attachments, manual, case and table.
I gave myself permission to look and read about it, until an actual potential buyer came along, and then I drifted away, like a good boy…who already owns so many machines.
Have a great Tuesday. Lane
