At this time of year, it’s impossible not to be reminded of all the things for which we are thankful. Mary and I are extremely thankful to be surrounded by so many loved ones. Just being able to spend time with other people and enjoy a good meal, a sunset or a quiet moment is something we cherish. Although I must say that the quiet moments are few and far between with all the kids and grandkids, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. We are also thankful for all the people at GroupeSTAHL. Without our hard working team, we wouldn’t be able to build upon many of the great opportunities that came our way this year. I would also like to extend a special thank you to Stitches Magazine for honoring me recently in the Stitches Powerlist 2013. The award really belongs to everyone at GroupeSTAHL and also to all our loyal customers--without you, we’re nothing! Thank you Nicole Rollender, Christopher Ruvo (@ChrisR_ASI) and everyone at Stitches and ASI Publications, (@ASI_Stitches) who put this list together. We are humbled and thankful for the recognition. Congratulations to everyone on the list, it’s an amazing group of honorees and the article is very well written. From our family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving everyone! May all your turkey dinners be delicious and all your football teams victorious.
