I have really been disappointed during this month because 3 of my favorite shops have closed. First I received an email telling me that my local quilt shop was closing. I think she is moving all of the material to her home. The next week I found out that my local Baby Lock store was closing. This one really got me, I don't think anyone had a clue they were shutting down. About three days later I received a letter in the mail telling me that another sewing shop was closing. I used to buy my material for baby dresses there. It was were I learned to smock and they had such a good variety of threads, buttons, and lace, oh my the lace was beautiful. Anyway, I could not help but wonder what is going to happen to other independent store owners as time goes by. I will surely miss all of the friends I made through the years at those stores and I wish them all a great future.
