I am taking this online class through my local community college and Ed2Go: http://www.ed2go.com/wilkescc/online_course/acb/syllabus/Start_Your_Own_Arts_and_Crafts_Business.html I am on the second lesson, and already the class has more than paid for itself($75!) I have learned several things I needed to know in order to make “Mama’s House” and “Karla Krafts” a reality. For example, I already know where I need to file my DBA (Doing Business As) and how much the filing fee is. I’ve followed links to more information than I can make use of right now. I have been given some invaluable advice, too. I am a happy crafter!
and the weather was spectacular! I took these photos from the hilltop upon which the N. Wilkesboro Post Office sits:
The Brushy Mtn. Apple Festival is held annually the first Saturday in October in downtown N. Wilkesboro, NC. Yesterday was the 33rd Festival. I’ve not missed a one even when relatives got married (I went before or after, with my hair sprayed as hard as a brown football helmet! ) Here’s a link: http://www.applefestival.net/
There’re craft vendors, entertainment (bluegrass lovers rejoice,) and lots and lots of food! While I do love a good fried apple pie, the best thing I ate yesterday was a funnel cake smothered in cream cheese frosting and topped with strawberries!
