Twenty-six years ago in February I was taking a short-cut to my job at a local doctor's office when I discovered the cute little shops in the Old Town Center in Manassas. I saw Creative Country and because it had a spinning wheel on the sign, I thought it might be a knitting shop. The first chance I got, I went to check it out only to find out that it was a home decorating shop. The shop next door was empty though and an idea was born. I got busy seeing what I had to do to start a knit shop. Cross-stitch got added to the mix even before I opened the door. In two years I had outgrown my cute little shop on Main Street, so I moved to Cavalry Village.
Although I am in a different unit than where I started, I have spent the last twenty-four years in Cavalry Village. We added Needlepoint and Quilting and Elna Sewing machines to the mix as we grew. The years have gone by so quickly. I have several customers who have been with me through my whole journey. I just amazes me when I see them and realize that I first met them in my shop and I've known them for twenty-five years. We have seen our children grow up, go off to college, get married and give us grandchildren and now it is grandchildren going off to college and getting married. This shop has given me more than good customers; it has given me people to share experiences with. My life is so rich because of all of you. Thank you for your loyalty.
