Talented Family

While Cathy has the designer skill and Allan is master of the machines; it is their niece that excels at writing.
For Christmas she wrote them a poem along the lines of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. She included all the quilt basket employees and extended family.

Quilt Basket Friends
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the shop
Austin was running around with his mop.

Denise was filling orders with care,
And just for the sake of the post office, Cathy was ridding herself of cat hair.

Dorrian was sprinting outside for the mail,
And Fiona was designing ads for a sale.

And Allan in his rounded shoes and large Santa cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap.

When from the classroom there arose a loud scream,
Sue Goth had designed a true quilter's dream!

But then came a dilemma into everyone's mind,
It needed to be quilted before they could bind!

And then who to their joyous surprise should appear,
But Debby Brown, causing all the employees to cheer.

She came with a large handi-Quilter, so precise and quick,
That Allan put together with a satisfying click.

She set to her work with a smile on her face,
And those around her smiled too - they knew perfect stitches she would place.

The back door opened and closed with a bang,
Theresa, Rita, Linda, and Sue Roe had arrived - now they had the whole gang!

Unbeknownst to the others, Elaine was busy preparing herself for a Janome selling spree,
While Cathy brewed a cup of peach tea.

Susanna stood by with paper and pen,
Nodding as she jotted down, "Aunt Cathy's Novel: Chapter Ten."

Meanwhile up front, Anne was doing some last minute shopping,
When there came a call from Sarah about the art of carrot chopping.

All the women there quickly jumped to her aid,
Anyone looking in would have wondered, "How much do these people get paid?"

Cathy watched all of this and kept it in control,
As Dorrian stuck pins in the Uncle Allan troll.

It is clearly obvious that this is everyone's favorite store,
From the organized bolts of fabric to the pins on the floor.

That is how we know it will be a great benefit
For people to receive a Quilt Basket gift certificate.

While this happy scene is still in our sight,
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
