Hi Valerie, I just took a moment to read your blog and I noticed a lovely post with my name in it!! Thank you again for such a lovely gift, I am so excited to sit with the ladies (and men if they would like to join us) and come up with ideas on how to best use the threads.

You are such an inspiration to me Valerie, I feel so blessed to have met you.

Lots of love,

Catherine Robar
