Happy Valentines Day!

Hello Friends,
Today marks our Eighth Anniversary....and of course Valentines Day! This is a small sampling of where we started at when we first opened on February 14, 2002. It was such a fun and amazing day, opening the doors for the first time and greeting a line of women! We are very excited about the store that we have become; adding an amazing staff, adding lots of fabric, moving into the "downtown",and joining the ranks of American Quilt Samplers Top Ten Quilts Shops.
Leslie and I are very blessed that all of you welcomed us and we are very grateful each and every day, to share the store with you. It has been an amazing 8 years and we are looking forward to many more. I know that all of the "girls" at the shop agree...we come to work each day loving what we do and we can't wait for our friends to walk through the door. Our slogan of "A Place Where Friendships Grow" has been proven time and time again. Just today we were talking with a customer at the shop and reminisced on when she was expecting her little one. We have watched many of your children and grandchildren grow into young people, your children graduate from high school and college. We have shared sorrows with you on the death of a family member, and joy on the announcement of a new child, new son in law or daughter in law.
Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your lives. Thank you for making our store your own! We look forward to many more years!

In Stitches,
Melissa and Leslie

Melissa,

I remember the day you came back from Market the first time and emailed all of Carrie's group that you had just been to Market and were opening a quilt store. Seems like yesterday but obviously not! Congratulations on the 8 yrs and the magazine and all!
