You know what it’s like to have a vision of the perfect outcome on a project you’re starting? You can see it start to finish and it is so gratifying when you get to the finish line and your garment is exactly as you envisioned or better. Well, so it is with selling a business. You know in your heart what you want for the outcome and after many obstacles, suddenly you are there with a perfect outcome which is even better than your best vision. That’s what has happened for me and for Sawyer Brook.
Faten Ramadan is a long time local customer of ours. Over the years we have followed her sewing skills as she created stunning tailored jackets with perfect fit, tweaked patterns to her liking and finally developed a product for sale to a niche market. All of this we watched in awe and with pleasure. Late this summer Faten contacted me when she belatedly learned of my plans to retire. What a joy it has been to work with her towards a transition of ownership! Everything I wanted and then some for the customers of SBDF. She has expert sewing skills, a superb knowledge of fine fabric, is an astute business woman and lives locally to our existing warehouse. Besides all that, Faten has a delightful personality that will engage everyone in our customer base as you learn to work with her over the phone or through email.
Good things are always worth waiting for! Please welcome Faten as she takes the reins on October 1st. I will be working behind the scenes for a bit longer to accomplish a smooth transition. Faten promises a full array of fall/winter fabrics in the web store in early October and more in the mail to our members shortly thereafter. Hold your breath, beautiful fabric is coming soon!
