Even though there may be no legal reason for her to give up the name, you may want to contact her anyway - not to ask her to do so, but just to give her a head's up. She may choose to change her name voluntarily once she realizes that someone else making handmade items already owns the domain and has a blog devoted to handmade projects. She herself may wish to avoid the possibility of being confused with your business. And as CraftyChef said, it's better to know for her to know earlier than later, it will be easier if she chooses to change it.
Awww... thanks so much! I'm so pleased with this piece, I drew the moon man myself... I'm not much of an artist but I think he turned out okay. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy embroidery, it is sooooo relaxing.
Hi everybody! I just realized that I haven't posted anything in ages and I've done some really nice work that I'm pretty proud of.
My latest tote bag is basically a Jordy-style bag, with a white felt moon man face appliqued then embroidered on the front. The outside is sturdy denim and the inside is a sweet blue plaid. What do you think?
Wow oh wow, thanks so much for the info about teflon tape. I am definitely going to try it! I made one item where I had to topstitch on vinyl and it did NOT come out so great.
I put away the rest of the vinyl that I had bought until I could afford a teflon foot. But I think we have some teflon tape around here from last year's plumbing fiasco...er I mean the wonderful plumbing job my hubby did... (well it turned out wonderful in the end...)
