Letter From The Top

Dear Friends, 
How time flies!  We are all moved into our spacious new store in Saint Joseph Michigan!

As we started to move and then as I attended the closing of the building we resided in for almost 13 years, it caused me a great deal of reflection.  I do have to say that along with reflection, there was anxiety and fear, yet at the same time, I experienced the joy of the "bigger and new" looking forward. 

My mother, Loretta Benedict, former ER Nurse, started Accomplish Quilting in the basement of my parent's home in Pennsylvania in 1993.

Best regards,
Jeff Benedict
810 Napier, St. Joe, MI 49085

A Word to the Wise
Heidi Olsen sends in this hint to remove the needle plate when you need to clean under it. Use your needle alignment magnet to easily lift the plate when it is unscrewed.

Send in your hints and if we use one, we will send you a spool of Glide thread.
