blessed greetings to nancy & harold...

moments like this one fill my heart with overloaded joy. meet harold and nancy...

they are traveling through ohio from missouri heading to niagara falls and planned their trip to stop at our shop to meet sarah. why? because nancy, who has been a long distance truck driver for 27 years, has been following our story. she quilts. and harold who she taught to drive an 18 wheeler after a career as a school administrator, had a sister with down syndrome. joanna passed away at the age of 55, but as he described had a wonderful life. it was like meeting family who we have just never had the pleasure of meeting before. such a treasure it is having this little quilt shop. we are so grateful. thank you for coming to see us nancy & harold. you are in inspiration to us. safe travels to you.
