Custom Article Bags, etc.
Are you looking for a utility scent article bag for obedience? Something different and unique? When I began training my white shepherd for utility classes, of course I ordered articles and a bag to keep them in. The bag was pretty dull, and my teacher, Kathy, told me it would be a pain for stewards to get the articles out of with the one zipper closure. So I decided to make my own design based upon the size of that bag. Having been a sewist and quilter for most of my life, I had some fun with it and put an applique of Wynnter’s dam and an embroidery of Wynnter on it. I made a couple as gifts. My thanks to Kathy Sutliff, Betsy Scapicchio and Linda Brennan for their support in the beginning, Wyndsong article bags have become very popular. Please keep in mind however that this is not my work, but my hobby. Work is where I go to earn a living. This I do to de-stress. So I apologize in advance that I cannot promise how long each bag will take.
At this time (03/20/14), my prices are:
Small – approximately 8″ x 8″ x 7″ $90
One-pocket standard bag $125
Two-pocket standard size bag $140
Shipping is additional.
Note 03/20/14: I want to thank everyone who has ordered an article bag from me. I apologize profusely for the terribly long wait that you endure for one of these bags. I try to sew every day but I do work full time, have family obligations and like to train and trial my own dogs. I am currently still working on orders placed in mid 2011, so if you are considering ordering a bag, there will be a wait of probably now three years.
Special thanks to all of the people who have purchased a bag and decided to order another for your new puppies! It’s hard for me to believe that I began this project over two years ago! I feel as though I have been blessed with many new friendships through this.
