    Tina, I really think we could do amazing things with an Apron Business. I really want to learn from you how to make Aprons. I want to set up the bedroom next to our room as a spot to make Aprons. I in time would purchase a sewing machine, fabric, needles, patterns, etc. What do you think about the idea of us doing this together. I do know we could do something on a Christian level with the Aprons if we really put our minds together. Love, ME
