"The Journey Begins With a Single Stitch"
A journey that began 16 1/2 years ago is now coming to an end. I have to admit there is a lump in my throat as I announce that Home Sweet Homespuns is closing for good. Many people who have been beautiful threads in this crazy ride . . . . this hobby-->turned part-time cottage business-->turned full-time curtain business. First is my mentor and friend who one day introduced me to "homespun". . . and the rest is history! There are the "sewing friends and acquaintances" who helped out at different times through the years. Other artisan friends partnered with us to broaden our home décor line. Last, but not least, no amount of thanks is adequate for my "A Team" -- the extraordinary women and multi-talented seamstresses who ARE Home Sweet Homespuns! There is no way to know how many THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of curtain panels these ladies produced with me! I am so grateful for their loyal service and their friendship! Now, as each of us walk down a different path, it is time to shut down the machines, put away the tools, and say good-bye from Home Sweet Homespuns.

This season is over, and I look forward to seeing what God has in store next.
