There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens...
And so, after 14 years - and more fun than you can imagine - I have decided to semi-retire and close our 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've started 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 will include 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've been wanting to revise and re-release, so I'll have plenty to keep me busy.
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 have also had to put some personal things on hold in order to bring you the highest quality products and services that you deserve. I have 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 saddened 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, as well as continue to read my newsletters 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!"
