Dear Sewing Community,

Sewing classes are on hold for now.

As some of you might already know, on June 14, my husband, Ben, was diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer that has metastasized to the liver, stomach and lymph nodes. He had his first session of chemo the week of July 11 but he did not tolerate it well. He has decided not to continue with chemo. We hope to find another treatment option. We don't know what this means, or if we will even find another option.

Ben and I know we have been so very blessed with our love and the life we have shared together. It's been full of fun and ridiculous adventures, 2 amazing kids, beautiful friends, beloved furry friends and memories that we cherish dearly. It has been a wonderful life indeed. So we'll try to face whatever is ahead with grace and gratitude.

I'm going to take time away from work so I can spend more time with him. I'm hoping to re-open the studio for classes and shopping later this fall, but need to play it by ear. I'm posting updates for family and friends about Ben's journey on a site called CaringBridge:

I'm keeping loved ones updated on the following site:

Thanks for all the love and support.
