Hmmm....I never even realized

So I am finally in the process of getting quotes to get our exterior signage done-I know I've been putting it off for WAY too long, but I haven't wanted to deal with the permitting. Anyways I was speaking with the guy who is going to be quoting me prices and I mentioned that I wanted to add a tagline to my graphic which I wanted 'Fabric for the MODERN SEWER' which I also have on an ad going out this week. Well he asked me how to spell sewer(someone that sews) and I proceeded to say S-E-W-E-R and then he asked me how to spell sewer(as in drain sewer that rats live in)...this is where I was stumped...really do I have advertising for Modern sewers(rat dwellings) all over????

So I've been trying to come up with another tagline that fits what I want to say, but I just don't feel like anything else has the same ring to it. Any ideas that anyone else has are greatly appreciated as well.

Fabric for the MODERN CRAFTER

I am also in the midst of a couple of other exciting ventures for my little store. One is possibly bringing on a very talented and knowledgeable fabric/sewing blogger to assist with the blog and/or website, I am looking at expanding/dabbling in bringing some yarn into the store. I've had so many people asking me about it and have recruited some of my customers to give me some ideas of what yarns they would like to see in the store, and I also hope to have some more project examples in the store soon since I have found a couple of great crafters that I'm in the process of asking to whip me up some great items.

Lastly I am so very excited that we are about to start our first Virtual Quilting Bee with me sending out the fabrics this week to the group(I jut have to get everyone's addresses first, so if you haven't sent them please do ASAP). There are just a few spots left so if you're interested let me know NOW!!!
