Boston’s Windsor Button to Close

One day about six months after I lost my husband, I found myself heading to Downtown Crossing to interview for a job after a couple of decades as a  mother and homemaker. Not being used to taking the T I allowed more than enough time before my appointment, so I started to wander around the vicinity.  The first store I came to on the street was Windsor Button!  I took it as a sign that this job was meant to be.

I was hired, and often after I would dash over for mental health breaks to pet the yarn.  Many a beautiful skein that might never have had occasion to tempt me successfully pleaded to come home with me. Eventually I came to teach the knitting and crochet classes there, which I have enjoyed tremendously, and also to write for their e-mail newsletter.

But nothing lasts forever.  Thanks Susan and Stan for giving me a creative home and voice for the past few years! Thanks for all the beautiful products you have made available, and all the beautiful projects you have made possible. All the best to you in the future.

I am hoping that many of those who have taken my classes are finding their way over to this blog.  Welcome!  I’d like to keep in touch! I don’t know what might be possible for me next, but I do know that I want to continue to teach somehow.

(And also to keep that job!)
