The Satisfying Sentiments of Christmas
No need to panic. Just thought I'd take a screen shot of a Christmas Countdown page I had found.
We hope you are enjoying your Christmas holiday, whatever that looks like to you. We have been having extremely cold weather, even for South Dakota. Last week we experienced two days that didn't get above 0. And the wind chills had us in the -20s and -30s. It's not my favorite. But to be honest, once it hits a certain temperature, cold is just cold. It reminds me to be thankful I have a warm house to come home to.
Here at the shop, we have been enjoying filling our customers' orders while they browse the store. They look over finished quilts, table runners and even some infinity scarves made from Cuddle material. The TV runs Terry's YouTube tutorials quietly while Christmas music plays on the radio. Our classes have been suspended until the new year. Christopher is working on a sewing machine that has been brought in to be fixed. Our ladies industriously work on the long-arm and embroidery machines. They efficiently finish gifts to be given over the holidays. Customers arrive and leave carrying their machines, finished projects, and a few items to be used for their next project.
As busy as these last few days are, there is a sense of satisfaction in getting things done. Crossing items on our To Do list off. Every finished task for us means another customer has what they need to help with their holidays. We are grateful to see these customers regularly. We are also grateful for our customers we don't see personally, but who we get meet through our online presence. The comments on YouTube, Facebook, and email are always read with a discerning eye. We want to make sure we are meeting the needs of the people who watch and follow us.
Our website has been a great way to reach out as well. We are one of very few stores that have a website that allows you to order online. We have shipped all over the country and internationally. Our shipping department gets a kick out of all the addresses in which we get to label and send supplies.
I hope you have gotten a little glimpse of what's going on in the store this week. We also hope you understand how important you are to us. Thank you for supporting this local store. We look forward to serving you throughout the holiday and the upcoming new year.
