We are here at Christmas Eve and almost closing the door on 2020. I'm sure most want to close that door tightly and with some effort! This year has brought many challenges to my business including a completely cancelled teaching / trunk show schedule and isolation at home with my husband who was also forced to work from home. I had to adjust my coffee break schedule! Lol
My daughter and son-in-law to be had to completely cancel their May wedding and events scheduled around it, :( ....
Sadly, we also lost my Mother-in- law this year as well. We are hoping for better days ahead, surely.
I began mask making mostly to fill the time at the beginning and to help people in our community. I ended up donating over 300+ masks and asking a fleet of neighbours to help with 200+ more. I also sold many masks based on requests for custom orders. I continued to blog for QUILTsocial.com during the pandemic. My customers who had quilts to be completed also continued to bring them to me with contactless curb side delivery and pick up. Thank you to my wonderful customers, you saved my sanity!
The COVID 19 Pandemic forced a lot of people to adjust, trust innovation and technology and slow down. It forced us to be antisocial! Not a human concept. Unfortunately, lives have been lost and people have been ill and this is a serious thing and therefore the precautions we took and are still taking are necessary ones.
Thank you all for the sacrifices you are making and the business quiltingintheloft.com has benefited from this year.
My hope is that you enjoy the holiday season, despite precautions and smaller gatherings.
Merry Christmas to you all and a much Happier, Healthy New Year.
Bring on 2021!

Merry Christmas Robin. There will be a quilt coming your way next week! I'm hoping I can see you in person this year for a lesson. Take care and stay safe!

I'm ready for the huge party to start when this craziness is all over. Merry Christmas Robin & Rick! Because of the weather, we're starting our festivities Christmas Eve and tomorrow and probably Boxing Day (sleepover a must as we're expecting 15-30 cm of snow starting tonight). Christmas for a party of two only. Will be cozy and lots of food/drink, because you know I'll still cook for 25 people. That just means lots of leftover makeovers next week. Looking forward to resuming our "S & B" days in the new year.

Yes to a party and yes to S & B days! We are starting tonight as well with appetizers and maybe a little "bubbly". I'm starting cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning as we speak. Merry Christmas to you and Brian, hugs to you both.
