We celebrate Suzanne!

Significant milestones are worth celebrating and yesterday, with full hearts, we celebrated!

Having been at Chrysalis Fine Furnishings & Fabrics for 28 years, Suzanne Conner feels close connections with co-workers and customers through the relationships she has formed. Her talent in understanding and using color has served her well in coordinating decorator fabrics and home design projects for Chrysalis’s customers.

She began her career while still in college working for Arlene Wingate, then owner of Chrysalis Fabrics. Arlene brought Suzanne on board and under her creative wing. She taught the young student design principles and shared her expertise as she trained Suzanne in the industry.

In 2005, Chrysalis was sold and new owner Susan Hugunin moved the designer fabric shop to The Market District . Suzanne quickly developed a close working relationship and personal friendship with her new employer.

A few years ago, Suzanne discovered her passion for painting, incorporating her love of color and creativity. The developing artist debuted her talent during The Art of Summer Living event (2011) and currently shares her artwork in the local community selling at local art shows, via Facebook and on her blog, Firefly Evenings. In pursuit of her love of painting, Suzanne will leave Chrysalis Fabrics and devote herself full time to her art. This Thursday will be her last day on the job, and although we will miss her terribly, the staff of Chrysalis wishes her the very best from the bottom of our hearts.

“ No matter the size of your home, if you have art and flowers, in my humble opinion… you live majestically.”

Love Letter to Monet
Suzanne Conner

On Sunday at a small gathering of co-workers, we celebrated Suzanne with hugs and warm wishes for a bright future in the arts and cherished the heart-felt moments. We enjoyed food, flowers, pear cake (thank you Bryant) and fond memories of the days we’ve shared.
