Heading down a new path . . .

One day earlier this year, I received a telephone call from my dear friend, Rosemary.  We chatted a bit as usual before the real reason for her call came forth:  Rosemary had made the decision to sell her business, and wondered whether I would be interested in taking over for her.  Wow – how honored and privileged I felt!  After reflecting on the possibility, praying for answers, several calls back and forth, and the encouragement of my family and friends, the decision was made.  Yes, Rosemary, I would certainly be interested in starting a new journey with Stitchin’ Sisters.  However, I asked, will you continue to design and create with me, at least for a while?  Indeed she would, and since that time, we have created a few patterns together and have enjoyed the special time we share in doing so, wishing we had been designing together for years rather than months.

As I venture forward with Stitchin’ Sisters, Rosemary and Alvin graciously guiding me through the day-to-day operations of the business, I often think of how blessed I am to have Rosemary as my stitchin’ sis and dear friend.  I know it was a very difficult decision for Rosemary to remove herself from this ‘baby’ of hers but I assured her that I would do my best to continue to create in the spirit that she began.   God has given all of us expressions of creativity that I believe are meant to be shared.   Just as Rosemary will continue to create in her own time, I, too, will share my expressions of creativity in this extraordinary art we call quilting.  My ultimate goal is to help bring the joy of quilting into other’s lives as it has brought joy to mine. Please know that I welcome your input – comments and stories both – and I look forward to meeting more stitchin’ sisters like you!
