And so, after 14 years – and more fun than you can imagine – I have decided to semi-retire and close the Serendipity Needleworks storefront. (I would be fibbing if I said that Rick’s health scare in January had nothing to do with my decision, or that Rebekah’s recent move didn’t influence me, either.)
It’s time to close the door on this chapter of my life and move on to the next one, which, by the way, is VERY exciting. You see, I’m writing again and I have two articles that will be published shortly. One in that fabulous new magazine called Making (May issue!) and the other in an equally fabulous publication called Classic Sewing (Fall 2017). I’m also working on a new vision for Serendipity Needleworks (which I’ve dubbed Serendipity 2.0) that includes a whole host of ways that you can continue to get your Serendipity “fix” — it’ll just be online. And, of course, there’s my book that I want to revise and re-release, so I’ll have plenty to keep me busy.
My Serendipity Needleworks Family…
There are no words that can adequately convey how sincerely grateful I am for all of your support over the past 14 years. This has been the greatest job ever and I have wonderful memories that I will always treasure. But, I’ve also put some personal things on hold in order to bring you the highest quality products and services that you deserve. I’ve often joked that I still have boxes that I haven’t unpacked from our move into our “new” house — and that was 13 years ago! YIKES! Now, perhaps, I can get that done. ; )
Of course, I am sad that I will no longer see you every day, but I am very excited about my plans for the future! I hope you’ll continue to follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. And that you’ll continue to read my weekly newsletter and this blog. I think you’re going to L-O-V-E what I have planned for us!
It’s going to be AWESOME and I can’t wait to share it with you!”
