I went back the website cause I thought that I had read somewhere on there they couldn't be sold for profit if you made them but now I can't find that so maybe I dreamed it

I don't think I would sell them cause like for example my friend while I was working on it I prayed for her and her illness if I made them to sell I wouldn't know the person or what to really pray for.. well ya could pray for the person who gets it to have blessed life but I don't know to me its not the same :thinking:

I wouldnt call it a prayer shawl if it was being sold at a faire....a "comfort" shawl, MAYBE...but, I would think that they would just be SHAWLS in that case. Although, if someone wants to give something comforting like that to someone who needs prayers or comforting, and the person is not a crafty individual theirself, then I suppose SOMEONE needs to make the shawl. I havent met many crafters who are all EVIL and just in it for the money....

Isnt it IMPRESSIVE that I have such well-thought out and formed opinions? Maybe its not.....I dunno. :rofling:

Prayers are like love, best when given freely.

I mean, really, pay me for this shawl I prayed over?? Maybe if it was blessed by the Pope or something... :rollseyes:
