Happy Birthday to Us!

The Enriched Stitch is one year old today!  Boy how time flies!  It has been the most exciting and fantastic journey. I have made new friends, both customers and the women who bust their humps every day working at the shop.

Let’s take a trip down memory lane.

When I first showed my husband and best friend the space I was going to rent, they thought I had lost my mind.

That’s the blue wall now

Talk about a dark and dingy dungeon!

The first time Julia Snyder came to teach

The Needle Deeva dropped by for a visit in September

and brought the Fab First with her

Robin King came to teach in November

Look at us now!

I have so many plans for the next year.  More visiting teachers, a retreat, exclusive designs, clubs and whatever else wakes me up in the middle of the night.  We are currently working on expanding the store to an entire other floor, nearly doubling the size!  I am building a state of the art classroom that will host an unparalleled class schedule.

I am so fortunate to have wonderful customers, friends and coworkers.  I love my happy place!

Thanks to Nancy, Aggie, Mary Susan, Debbie and Becki for all of your help day after day (and for putting up with me).  You bring extra energy to the shop and together we make magic.
