Just to say...

This is a quick post just to point out this wonderful article from the Salem Gazette about Maureen Clark, my LQS owner and a woman I am proud to call my friend. She is incredibly warm, kind, and generous of spirit--to everyone, but especially her customers. We adore her! It was so disarming for all of us to learn that she has breast cancer. I am so happy at the way our little community of quilters has rallied around her.

I think Maureen says it best, as quoted in the article: “The community I’ve found here, all of whom come from different backgrounds but all brought together by their love of fabric arts, have been my therapy,” Clark said. “I’ve taken so much comfort from them.”

(The photo above is of Maureen, myself, and Melynn, who was also quoted in the article. It was taken at the end of a long and very very fun night of debauchery.)

Back later this week with a post of a different sort about an amazing workshop I took last weekend!

Oh no! I know Maureen as a customer from when I worked at the bakery. She is indeed a warm and friendly person and it is awful that she is going through this.
