Stephen-Pres/CEO: November 2011 Archives
Good Morning and Happy Wednesday! I hope this note finds you well and preparing for a terrific Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends.
As I reflect back on all that has transpired this year, I am overwhelmed with a deep feeling of gratitude for the many blessings I have received. I have been blessed with good health in my immediate and extended family. Our "Fabric.com family" here in Marietta has grown beyond my wildest dreams. Today, we are able to provide good and meaningful jobs to almost 200 people! Our larger extended family of customers has also expanded beyond anything I could have ever thought possible. Today, over 150,000 people from all over the world visit each and every week. How could we possibly say "Thank You" enough to all of you for your friendship and support! You are our reason for existing and I hope our commitment to serve you is evident in everything we do.
This Thanksgiving celebration will be particularly meaningful for our immediate family. Our oldest daughter, Alexandra, has gone off to college in Philadelphia, which feels a long, long way from Marietta. We will get to spend 4 days with her, and my wife's extended family, during our annual Thanksgiving visit to Joliet, IL. To say that we are excited to all be together is a huge understatement. It seems like only a year of two ago when I was sharing details with you about her early days as a swimmer in junior high school. The time passes so fast.
On behalf of everyone here at Fabric.com, please accept my warmest personal wishes to you and your entire family for a happy, meaningful, and safe Thanksgiving holiday!
All the best,
