Hello, Mike aka Mr. Laura here.

First, Laura and I hope that you and yours are all safe and well. This has been a very difficult time for our country and the world. We are extremely blessed that our family has stayed well. Both our Daughter and Son were laid off/furloughed. My Son-in-Law is a grocery store manager and is an essential worker so he is still going to work every day so we worry about him and our daughter and granddaughter. Laura and I have been isolating here at home which would really not be that difficult except we have not seen our Granddaughter Tabitha, which if you know us, is very very difficult. But things are looking up. Here in North Carolina the Murray model is saying it will be safe to start reopening the state May 10. Our Daughter Carol will be starting a new Job June 1 and our Son Dan is expecting to be recalled June 1 as well.

We know this last part of staying at home may be the most difficult. To help you spend the time creatively we are offering 20% off all items on our website from now through May 31st. If there is one of Laura’s patterns you have wanted to try or if you need purse hardware, zippers or webbing to create a new version, just enter stayhome20 in the coupon area during checkout.
