Giving Thanks
We are thankful as always, for our families, but also I am thankful for the wonderful customers, staff, and friends here at Serendipity Quilt Shop. We are fortunate to not be dealing with weather or fire disasters as in other parts of the country/world. At Serendipity we try to reach out to our community and provide ongoing support to the Quilts of Valor program, and to the local domestic violence program at People's Place here in Sussex County. See below how to help. Thanks and have a wonderful holiday with your families. (We of course, are closed on Thanksgiving Day. ) - Kathy
