Mary Ellen called me yesterday and said, “I sent you an email – don’t you read your email?” I had been outside all afternoon in the beautiful weather so I had not seen it. She is closing Little Quilts in Marietta, GA – another dinosaur retires. I think I’ve said before that I miss our industry friends and the Little Quilts girls have been friends for many years. I made their schoolhouse quilt as close to the original as I could and it hangs in the bedroom today after many years because I still love it. Gladys hand quilted it so it’s a treasure.
I told Mary Ellen how wonderful retirement is and how much she’ll love it even though we both agreed we want to blog just to keep in touch with our friends. Our friends and colleagues were the very best part of our business for 33 years.
Little Quilts will close December 24, 2015. Hey, Mary Ellen, we’ll see you in Houston next October!
