Barb’s Bulletin- Retirement!

Posted December 19, 2019

Dear Quilters,

    ......and now….. it’s my turn.  I’m going to retire!  After 48 years of working, 30 years teaching school and 18 1/2 years in my shop- I’ve made my decision - I’m finally going to retire! Mt. Pleasant Quilting will be closing its doors at the end of January. When I turned 75 this past August, it made me stop and ponder about my life and future.  I decided I wanted to stop making business decisions and let go of all the responsibilities that come with owning a shop.  Yes, I’ve had some “pretend retirement” times away from the shop in the past few years, but never without the knowledge that I still had a business I was responsible for.
    I’ve been very blessed to have had the staff that I have.  Without them, I could not have had my shop run as efficiently as it has.  I’ve been very blessed to have had you for customers.  You did find my shop “in the middle of a cornfield” as some customers have referred to it.  We are a destination shop, so thank you for making the effort to drive here for the sole purpose of shopping at Mt. Pleasant.  I certainly appreciate you and thank you for making my shop a success!

 

Now on to the nitty-gritty:

• The retail doors will close on Friday, January 31, 2020.

• The Quilt Away Retreats will still continue.

• THE FOLLOWING CLASSES ARE THE ONLY CLASSES THAT WILL CONTINUE:  (The ending month for those classes is listed below.  I will keep my commitment to those students to complete their projects.)

    Faux Thimbleberries Class taught by Jackie Roberts :
    thru April.


Judy Niemeyer Classes taught by Karen Bryant:
Karen is a Judy Niemeyer Certified Instructor.
      Amazon Star: thru February.
      Bali Wedding Star/Flowers For My Wedding: thru May.
      JN Potpourri: thru May
      JN Mixers: thru May
      If You’re Stuck, Get Unstuck: thru May.

Judy Niemeyer classes will continue thru the Spring at Mt Pleasant Quilting.  Karen is looking into options for teaching locations for the future.

Around We Go Class taught by me - Barb- until completion.

• Longarm Quilting Services:
• Gammill Classic Longarm Quilting Machine.   
            I am selling one of my two Gammill Classic Longarm
            quilting machines. It is the stitch regulated Classic
            model. I am selling the ten-foot table that has a
            hydraulic lift attachment which allows you to adjust the
            table to any height. The machine has had the properly
            scheduled maintenance for it’s lifetime. The girls will
            be using it until the doors close on January 31st. Please
            call the shop at 585-245-0767 if you’re interested in
            purchasing it.

• SALE for the month of December: Storewide: 35% off.
  ( It does not include what you have pre-ordered or what we have placed in the drawer for you.)
 

December Holiday Closures:
Sunday and Monday, the 22nd & 23rd (closed as normal.) We will also be closed Tuesday & Wednesday the 24th & 25.
    I’m happy about my retirement decision.  I’m healthy and well and looking forward to the next phase of my life.  Yes, it’s extremely bittersweet, but all of us have to make difficult decisions throughout our lives. I’ve told my grandboys that I’ve never worked a day in my life because I loved teaching for thirty years and have loved every moment of being a shop owner for eighteen and a half.  I thank you for the many laughs, jokes, tears that we’ve shared and the friendships that that have been formed. I certainly appreciate each and everyone of you and thank you for making my shop a success all these years. As I’ve always said in my newsletters: you are all fun, friendly, and fantastic women! (And men-you are too!) I sincerely thank you for attending classes and shopping at Mt. Pleasant Quilting.
         
    Until next time…... you’ll still hear from me over the next month or so…....

Sewingly,
          Barb
