Okay. So this is completely random, but I've been toying with this idea lately. I'm getting married in June 2007 and I want to give my lovely ladies shawls as a gift. I however cannot knit/crochet.. I've tried. I suck. I hate it.
Anyways! So, I'd like to contract with a craftster if possible, you know keeping it all in the family.
I of course would provide all of the materials and pay. As for payment! I'm broke, but I'm also a potter. I was thinking that it might be a fair trade for 5 shawls... some monetary compensation, and then a variety of lovely bowls, platters, etc. From my biased perspective, I feel like that would be a fair trade.
I really love the highly detailed, delicate looking shawls.. but then again a small detail goes a long way.... I'd be completely willing to talk it out. I have limited knowledge in this field.
So... here's hoping someone thinks that it's a great idea...
