red carpet nervous...

i am speechless. knee shaking, heel knocking, butterflies in the stomach, giddy. i just received an email congratulating us for being a 2011 fabric shop network star award nominee. i feel like a movie star the morning the nominees are read aloud. it is truthfully shocking. apparently jellen's house of fabric has been nominated in the rising star category.


what is a rising star you ask? it reads: someone who is new to our industry whose future looks bright. i understand now, i really do, when they say just to be nominated with the big names means so much. good grief. look at this line up:


Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts

Stitch Sanctuary

Bittersweet Blessings

Cathy McKillip

Blue Ribbon Quilt Shop

Kate Spain

Sarah Vedeler

Riley Blake Fabrics

JEllen's house of fabric

i am humbled beyond words. thank you to all of our wonderful customers for supporting us. and thank you sarah and friends for defining our mission. this really is for you.
