South Plainfield, NJ, US

My name is Jenn. I am a preschool teacher in a Catholic School. I have been married for four years to the man of my dreams. We live in the cutest house and I just love every inch of it. But my favorite part is my sewing room! It is in the basement and it is a prett lavendar color and I have new floors and Steve assembled a sewing table and put in a table that was in Fabric Land. After all the work to set up the sewing room (and way too much money on fabric!) He realized that I had no idea how to work the sewing machine! I did not see the big deal, I had a sewing room and did not know how to sew, I have a kitchen and do not know how to cook and no one thinks twice about that! So now I go to classes and I love it!
We also spend alot of time traveling. Our favorite thing to do is go on cruises. We have been to Alaska, 18 days through Europe and 3 trips to the Caribbean. We have also been to Disney, Universal, Las Vegas, Amish Country many times and spend almost everyweekend at the Jersey Shore. We just got back from a quick trip to Baltimore Inner Harbor. We are always going somewhere, but whereever I go, I love New Jersey the best!
2009 - 2 more trips to the caribbean! Why can't I find the material that they make those shirts out of around here? And am I the only person in love with moo moos - besides Mrs. Roper?

Re: Buying Fabric on Ebay

I just wanted to add that you should also ask about any weird smells before you bid. I have bought ALOT of fabric on ebay and there is nothing worse than when you get that package you have been waiting for and you open it up to a weird smell or that stale smoke smell. That has also happened with some books and how doyou get a smell out of a book? Uggh!
