A little over 3 years ago, our little quilt shop grew up. We moved to a larger space and hired more employees. So much has happened in those three years along with this hurdle of the pandemic.
We have been blessed to have been able to stay open throughout the entire year last year, mainly due to being able to do curbside pick-up and going online. Our customers have supported us through it all.
This week, we have a new hurdle to jump...our neighbors - a beauty shop, had a pipe burst and not only flood their space, but our entire space flooded as well.
Thanks to some quick action by our employees and a few customers that showed up to help, we were able to move out all the fabric that day along with machines and some notions and books.
The remaining shelving remained and we have been drying out the space all weekend with the help of a flood recovery company.
Tomorrow the real work begins as we move out old shelves that were ruined and begin the process of repair.
I have had a couple of moments of everything from disbelief to shear panic to peace. Thankfulness has taken it's place in that this could have been so much worse. Insurance will meet the need and hopefully we will be back up in a few weeks.
This wasn't the way I envisioned starting my blog again, but it seems to be the perfect time as to watch this all grow back to life again as Spring is upon us.
I hope you'll join us and along the way discover our beautiful community that has rallied us all this past year and continue to do so now.
