It has been quiet over here at Practical Pages this past month because we have been busy sewing and I put our homeschooling on the back burner. We were given a last-minute spot at the fabulous Witsand Christmas Market to sell our handmade items this December. Not having much time to prepare, we plunged in full-time!
My product line is called Birdie Bags and I am trying to generate enough stock to last the full month of Dec into the New Year. I am sewing bags, mostly quilted drawstring bags and pencil and other zip bags. These bags fold open to become a basket-tray, making it an ideal travel bag.
My daughters created a pyjama range and my eldest sews the beautiful tops, while my middle daughter sews the shorts and pants. They have a wonderful friendship and an amazing collaborative business. They are setting up their Facebook page and Instagram pages and already have orders, but their Christmas market stock is a priority.
So, as this school year draws to a close and South Africans plan for their long-awaited summer December break, I trust you are finding your end of year flow and rhythm.
Much grace, Nadene
