I am grateful for the last 4 1/2 years of my life and the opportunity to have owned Yellow Bird Fabrics.
I am grateful to all of my customers. Many of you have become great friends. You have inspired me and supported me and for that I cannot thank you enough.
To all of my co-workers throughout the years, Leena, Amber, Sunni, Elizabeth, Sheridan and Melia, you have all become my best friends. I have relied on you and you have never let me down. You have made this little fabric store dream a reality and I am forever in your debt.
I am thankful for a supportive family, parents and a husband that have helped me through it all. I am grateful for my son and a new baby that is on its way.
With all of this gratitude, I will admit, there is a little sadness. I have to leave this shop that we have built and grown to love so much behind.
But don't worry, you will not be losing a fabric store. You will be gaining a great friend. Sunni Standing, is taking over the business. You probably already know her, she has been teaching classes and working at the shop for a couple of years now. She is an incredibly talented seamstress and one of the kindest people I know. I feel very comfortable leaving the shop in her hands. I know she will continually grow the business in ways that I never could.
Thank you for your support. Thank you for loving Yellow Bird almost as much as I do. I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.
