I am so fortunate to have such a great group of gals working at the shop. Anna, one of our long time employees, lost everything in a wildfire in May. In the immediate aftermath, people were incredibly generous bringing donations, money, and lots of love her way.
Since the fire she has been able to replace her home with a larger model along with many basic necessities. Now that she has had time to sort everything out, I asked her to make a list of things she missed the most and we would throw a shower for her. Any reason for a party!
Join us on Friday, August 1 from 4pm to 8pm. Bring a gift for Anna, and you’ll be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a set of her tatted stitch markers.
Here is her wish list. If you are planning on bringing one of the specific items on the list, please let me know so I can mark it off and we can avoid duplication. If you already have some of these items and are looking to re-home them, that will be just fine. Anna will be grateful either way.

We were going to do a cookout theme, but realized that none of us know how to cook on a grill. Rather than involve disgruntled men to help with the task, I’ll go with more out a summer, outdoorsy menu and skip the grill. That’s probably in everyone’s best interest. We don’t need another fire!
Hope you will join us! We’ll have delicious food, fun people, and a good time. And unlike many bridal/baby showers there will be NO SILLY GAMES. I promise!
