Hey, do you guys remember my call of distress back when I was assigning swap partners? There was a lady who had signed up but her email didn't work and I couldn't find her anywhere so I posted a Tweegram asking if anyone knew her. Unfortunately, no one recognized her but there were a few helpful suggestions (which didn't pan out, sadly.) I couldn't stop thinking about her and I was feeling pretty bad about not being able to locate her to assign her a partner. Well, very shortly after all the partners went out, she sent me a very sweet email inquiry about whether or not she made the cut. I WAS SO RELIEVED! We worked out the email, her partner info went out and the world kept turning. In fact, she was so grateful for my hard work that she offered up a prize for one of our QoA's. Isn't that a happy ending? I certainly think so.
Let's find out a little more about our new friend, shall we?
Hello Everyone, my name is Lisa Nelson. I am currently living in Richfield, Minnesota (right by the Mall of America, y'all!) with my husband of 12 years, our daughter and our two silly dogs. I started quilting in my 30's! My Mother-in-law taught me to sew. (Trust me, I needed the guidance and her patience!)
I work for Rubenstein & Ziff in Customer Service and Sales. We got our start wholesaling fabric in the upper Midwest to tailors and furriers in the late 1920’s. As fabric stores and cottage industry manufacturers entered the marketplace, Rubenstein & Ziff began to serve them as well.
