in the news...

it is such a great feeling to be able to share my love of fabric, while at the same time furthering our mission and letting others know how important it is to think outside the box when it comes to hiring.

the sun newspaper ran a story today telling of a job fair i participated in. sitting next to me is audrey, a great customer and friend who has also worked tirelessly throughout her career to support the efforts of hiring young adults with developmental disabilities. we are interviewing brittany, a young woman who i have had the pleasure of knowing almost as long as i have known sarah, as their birthdays are just nine days apart. we interviewed several students that day and would have hired nearly all of them, especially the young man who asked us what the benefit would be to working in our store. audrey quickly replied, "you get to play with this wonderful fabric all day" to which he enthusiastically replied, "awesome!!!" and that's exactly how we feel every day. click here to read the entire article.
