On the Road with Stoles

I am busy packing to go to the UCC General Synod in Long Beach, California.  For the first time, I will have a booth in the Exhibit area .. booth #461.


It’s a really interesting process to be part of an exhibit area in a big convention center.  I have learned about packing and shipping, arranging for electricity and signs for the booth,and getting a California tax number (yes, you will be paying sales tax in California).  [For those of you who don’t know, there is no sales tax on clothing in Minnesota, and clergy vestments are considered clothing.]

I met my goal of making 100 stoles for the booth.  Which means (for those who are interested), 66 yards of interfacing, nearly 2 km of beige thread (for most of the sewing), 50 yards of rayon fringe, 75 yards of beautiful fabric, and more hours than I am willing to confess!

See you in Long Beach — and tell your friends!
