This quilted bag is absolutely wonderful. It was a huge surprise gift because the person who received it didn't remember telling me how much she liked Kokopelli. Excellent vendor care and communication.

It was exactly what was wanted, in excellent unused condition. It was delivered one day sooner than estimated, in good time for Christmas. I'm very pleased.

About

THE BAG LADY FROM THE BAY TAKES A LEAP

When I first took up quilting I had a few bits of fabric, a cheap second hand sewing machine, some thread and one quilt pattern!
My grandmother was a Quilter, cutting, piecing and finishing all of her pretties by hand, she never did own a sewing machine. I always loved sleeping under her quilts but in all honesty never took interest in the actual mechanics of how it all had come together.
Many years later my best and childhood friend introduced me to her interest in quilting and through her efforts I too became well and truly hooked. Through a large learning curve and lots of wobbly finished effects in those first years I began to learn and enjoy the quilting craft and have never looked back! My work got better and with it became totally engrossed with quilting and collecting fabrics. I soon ran out of family and friends to give my finished projects to, then I began charitable giving and donating and also sold pieces at school bazaars, and yard sales. The proceeds keep me working at my hobby and giving to charitable causes. The very best of this hobby of mine is the people you meet and befriend along the way. I am sure you realize the Quilters of this world are some of the most generous people, they give back and pay it forward every day and through one charity or another, or with any world disaster, this is where you will find a Quilter. These people are wonderful to be among.
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson.

A friend mentioned ETSY, describing this site as the perfect outlet for Hand Crafters and Artisans with a wide range of genres to display and sell their handmade creations.

WHEN finally I made a huge move from one Province to another within Canada, I ended up in Seeley's Bay! A beautiful place along the Rideau Canal Waterway with lots of visiting tourists as well as many village events to take part in. Someone asked what name I would work under, I choose the Bay, and because I was on a Tote Bag making whirl during that year, I choose THE BAG LADY FROM THE BAY as my daily Blog title and decided my ETSY SHOP should also carry the same name.
SO with a leap of faith I set about joining the many Artisans at ETSY!!

This is the BEST site on the internet for people to showcase their skills, crafts and abilities in whichever medium they work in. Because all of us who are addicted with our various abilities need an outlet to sell and keep ourselves with the hoped for small sales to keep us in supplies so that we may continue creating and working in what and where we most love to invest our creative talents.
For myself there is no greater thrill than selling a handmade item I made with care and much love.

Not new to Etsy but this is a whole new direction! If you are interested visit my other shops:
