Out of lemons comes lemonade. That cliche fits the beginning of Two Funny Girls better than any other.
In the Spring of 2000, a funny girl named Kristy received word that her mom, who also happens to be quite funny, had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Five days after that diagnosis, Kristy’s grandma died unexpectedly – if dying at 88 is ever unexpected. Grandma lived a full life and left a tidy little sum and funny Mom decided to purchase an embroidery sewing machine with a bit of that inheritance to celebrate her completion of chemo.
The business ran seamlessly (see what we did there?) for over eighteen years. Sara’s breast cancer did return and she passed away in November of 2018. The business is now run by Kristy with the help of friends and family, including Sara’s husband Jim, who serves as an occasional errand boy for Two Funny Girls. Sara would be so proud of how this corner of the internet has flourished despite her absence and Kristy takes comfort knowing we have a special eye above making sure all threads are pulled and stitching is tight.
Kristy’s dog, a sweet boxer mix named Clyde, wants Two Funny Girls to fail miserably. His walks are often neglected as his dog-mom spends too many nights and weekends in front of the computer or sewing machine. As a compromise, Two Funny Girls donates a portion of the proceeds to charitable organizations. Clyde approves.
Kristy is a proud graduate of Texas A&M University. If you think there is a inordinate amount of maroon samples on the site – you are right. Thanks for stopping by and Gig ‘Em.
