  • Shirley’s Fabrics is sewing miracles

    Shirley Jones has been sewing for herself since she was a teenager. She has been sewing for other people for more than 30 years.

    Shirley’s Fabrics in Hodgenville has been open for eight years. Before that, Jones did sewing in the back of her husband’s barbershop, Jones Barber Shop. When her husband died, she decided to continue working at the shop and expand to fill the barber shop space.

    Jones said others encouraged her to open the shop: “ ‘We can’t buy a spool of thread in Hodgenville’ they said. So I kept the shop.”

  • Floral and gift shop thrives on Golden Rule

    Nancy Polley Alexander credits the Golden Rule as the major reason her Hodgenville isbusiness, Nancy’s Gifts and Flowers, growing in both customers and space.

    “I treat them like I want to be treated and, as a result, I have a lot of return customers,” said Alexander, who moved into her current downtown site on Lincoln Boulevard in March.

    “I’ve got more room in my workroom now than I had in my whole shop before, and it’s all because of the support local people have given me,” she said.

    By Nancy Kennedy

    The other day I got a letter from a Mark Gould of Southampton, New Jersey.

    He had just finished reading my book “Prayers God Always Answers” and he had some questions for me. He said, “I do like to question authors, more kindly now than in the past. Once a gargoyle, not always one.”
