The adjective bittersweet doesn't just refer to taste.    
It can also describe a blend of emotions that are sweet but also  
tinged with sadness.
Thank you, Joyce!  
Joyce has retired! She started 29 years ago and first worked in the Nicholson drug store, which later became Essentials and Fabric Essentials. Joyce was very versatile and handled a variety of jobs over the years: daily operations, food preparation (when we had a cafe and fountain), inventory control, orders, sales and billing. Many of you know Joyce as the main person in charge of your monthly BOM billing.   
We are sad to see Joyce go, but we know she won't be a stranger!  
Joyce, we hope you have a grand adventure as you and Ken travel and as you have more time to sew for various charity projects.  
Thanks again for all your assistance over the last three decades.  
Time sure has flown by and we are glad you were part of it all!  
Welcome to Sarah & Melissa and  
Welcome Back Christen!
Sarah and Melissa are both new to Concordia and Fabric Essentials and are working in customer assistance, block-of-the-month billing, order processing and inventory. 
Christen worked for us before and just moved back to the area.  
She's handling image processing for our online store and working on special quilting projects.   
Thanks to everyone who makes Fabric Essentials a great place to be !
