Hoppin Bobbin Newsletter


It is with heavy heart that I write this email today but I feel the need to let everyone know just how grateful I am for my Quilting Family.  For those of you who did not know, the day after Thanksgiving, my family suffered a great loss as my brother, Alan, passed away unexpectedly.  All of us are completely brokenhearted by this and have spent the last 10 days mourning and preparing to lay him to rest.  I have been at the shop for only a few hours over the last 10 days and have been with my family.  I always knew that my Quilting Family was a  wonderful group of ladies that would be there when I needed something.  However, I have been overwhelmed by the kindness of this group of women who went out of their way to comfort me and my family during this difficult time.  I needed to let everyone know how much all of you mean to me.  Thank you to Barb and Elisabeth who have held the fort down and kept things running at the shop since the day before Thanksgiving.  Without them, I would have had to close it for the week, as I just couldn't deal with everything that was going on and the shop too.  They have gone over and above the call of duty and I am so grateful for their friendship and their love of Hoppin Bobbin.   Thank you to all of you (it would take a page to mention everyone by name) for all of the phone calls, the emails, the texts, the food provided for my family and for the fellowship following the funeral, the cards, the flowers, and the donations to Parkinson's research. Thank you to those of you who  showed your support by attending the viewing and the services and for letting me cry like a blubbering idiot on your shoulder (that is definitely something I hate for anyone to see).    I simply cannot tell everyone how much all of you are appreciated and how deeply loved you have made me and my mother feel.  You are all priceless to me.  Please continue to pray for my family and I as our hearts try to heal and we try to get through this.  I love you all and am so blessed to have such a wonderful group of ladies in my life.  Thank you- Kelly
