At our last meeting I learned that Phyllis Schiwal died in April. Phyllis joined the NeedleNerds about a year and a half ago. She was a nice addition to the group and we’ll miss seeing her. You can read her obituary here.
Michael’s now owns the online business of the now defunct Hancock Fabrics:
“We are excited to share with you that the legacy of Hancock Fabrics will continue, as the Bankruptcy Court has approved the sale of the on-line business of Hancock Fabrics, Inc. and its affiliated entities to Michaels Stores. Today, Michaels operates more than 1,200 stores across the United States and Canada. Michaels also maintains a strong on-line presence and warmly welcomes the customers of HancockFabrics.com to its growing family. With Hancock Fabrics, Michaels now looks to build upon Hancock’s great reputation for providing quality fabric and notions to customers across the country.”
Please post a comment to this blog post if you are interested in meeting sometime during the week day. I won’t be able to make a daytime meeting since I work fulltime, but I can get something coordinated.
