The graciousness of the people of The Ridge has been a tremendous journey for all of us. As you know, we have had a lot of ups and downs. We all look forward to a future where we all rebuild our lives.
A Stitch Above was founded on June 1, 2013, at 6345 Skyway, Paradise, CA and we made so many friends moving to this beautiful town! Our mission is “Making You Look Good… One Stitch at a Time!” Let’s make new memories together.
The Campfire of November 8, 2018
Watch the documentary here Rebuilding Paradise (Warning to all Fire Survivors – Trigger Alert). This film shows what happens to people after surviving a disaster. Ron Howard’s mother in law lived in Paradise for four years, and he had visited many times.
We woke up that morning tired and happy to the phone ringing. Two nights prior we hosted an election results party celebrating Steve’s election to Paradise Town Council. I went to work, Steve stayed home straigtening up. He was notified that the Camp Fire was “barrelling” towards Paradise. He called me at work and said to close the shop and come home, we’ll throw a few things together and evacuate together. He called me right back and said, “stay put, I’m coming to get you, the fire is here.” He arrived and we evacuated together, with just the clothes on our back, like so many others. We stopped at Town Hall to see how he could help. He came back out to the car and said he was going back up the hill, where he remained until 4:30 with one other council member directing traffic at Skyway and Elliott. I spent the day in the Raley’s shopping center in Chico with my two Miniature Schnauzers, Harley and Missy. Unfortunately, our story is not unique. This ridge continues to amaze and impress us!
We have since rebuilt our home back in Paradise, there truly is no place like home!
One day we hope to rebuild the business at 6345 Skyway, Paradise, CA 95969, but in the meantime, we were welcomed by Jimmy’s Trophy Shop in Oroville to continue our business. Each day that we help one of our businesses get off the ground with their marketing materials gives us hope. Each day that we see a new business open up gives us joy. Each day that our friends create new memories brings us peace. Each day that our friends come back to The Ridge makes us proud.
