Gussie's Gifts Inc.
 
Hey everyone just wanted to let everyone know I decided to give Gussie's Gifts "dream catchers" a try. I ordered today they said it will be in the mail tomorrow. 5-7 days I will keep everyone posted. I have done dream catchers many times before so it should not be hard. I will let everyone know when my kit arrives.

Questions I got answered:
1. Do I receive the full first set free of charge? Yes, after I get approved the first full is provided free of charge.

2. They pay by check.

3. Can do up to 3 units per week.

4.Do I buy my own supplies or purchase from them. They say it's only $12.50 for a full unit of supplies.

That sounds like a good deal to me.

1. I can complete a dream catcher in about a half hour but I'm sure once I get into doing them that will decrease. They are easy to do, it's just keeping the tight tension on the webbing that is hard.
2. For Gussie's Gifts I make the angels and for Hands on Hobbies I make the belts.
3. Yes! However I did buy a set of supplies on my own so that when one unit was sent in I would still have something to work on.
4. I just started with them but on my first unit I was paid within two weeks. But as with all craft companies it depends on how much work they have at the time they receive your unit....

Thanx A Friend for your reply.

I got my kit yesterday. I should be sending off my finished product Monday. Cross your fingers for me. They are very easy especially since I have done them before I will post when I mail it and when I hear back.

Need advice on Dream Catchers
 
I just received my stater kit on Friday. I made two of the dream catchers, but am having some problems. If anyone has any advice, I would appreciate it. Here are the major problems I'm having:
1. Cannot get the weave super tight like the sample.
2. The center 1/2" hole keeps coming out off center
Again, any help would be appreciated since this is all new to me.

Good luck to those that have sent their samples ans sets in

I just mailed off my inspection dream catcher 2-3 day priority. Ill keep everyone in the loop.

Hey, not sure how much help I can offer but If your center hole is off center, it sounds like your not centering your loops in the middle of the previous loop so it is going more to one side with each row.

for the web,pinch the loop after you tighten it, it will keep it from loosening as you move to the next loop.

hope this helps.

Thank you. I didn't think of that idea of the previous row not centering the knot properly. I think that may be the problem. Thank you again.:D
