We're in the midst of hiring a new crew member here at Lorna's Laces. It made me start thinking about the people who I've been lucky enough to work with over the last few years.
One finished up her master's degree in gerontology and moved on to work at a senior center.
One is a morning DJ at WXRO in Beaver Dam, WI.
One got certified in massage therapy while she was here and is now making people happier and healthier at a fancy spa on the Mag Mile.
One went to Mongolia to build yurts.
Four were refugees from a famous coffee shop.
One left here to work in a local coffee shop.
Three went on to pursue their art full time and are making a living doing it. Mostly illustrative stuff.
Three still work in fiber, just not here.
One volunteers at the Field Museum. Bird stuff.
One is in HVAC.
One did burlesque on the side.
Three had babies. Two boys and one girl. So far.
Five chased love across the country.
