I have struggled with whether or not to make a declaration about the recent events in my life. However, it’s become apparent that my customers are some of the most wonderfully patient and understanding people. That said, I’d like to ask for continued understanding as my response times are a little slower these days and as many may have noticed orders haven’t shipped in their typical lightening-quick fashion of late. A week ago today my father passed away and it’s hit me harder than I could have imagined. My family, me and the world lost a rather incredible and one-of-a-kind man last Monday and now I am trying to figure out what my world looks like without him. For the last six months we knew his time was coming but I still wasn’t prepared. Many trips to Oregon and probably more in the future have had me slower on the work side.
My dad, were he still here, would tell me that the show must go on and it will but I wanted to share this news so I slow down and recognize that I won’t be bouncing back too fast. I remain excited about the new shop, your quilt block submissions (so excited to see them) and continuing to fulfill every order that comes in, however it will just be done with more measured thoughts I suppose in the next few weeks. Custom orders versus fabric orders will take the biggest hit, and I apologize for any extended delays.
There’s some good changes coming to the site and of course new fabric (Flea Market Fancy) always around the bend, including QuiltCon-specific bundles. I will update you soon as it will be mean new customer accounts, better ordering, a new look and more.
Thank you to all the customers with which I’ve already had to share this news and thank you in advance for your continued understanding.
