After spending 113 days and raising nearly $100,000 to help people become self-sufficient in both the U.S. and developing nations, Carol Schillios is coming down from the roof of her Fabric of Life store, 523 Main St., in downtown Edmonds.
Everyone is encouraged to be at the front of the store at 2 p.m. this Saturday, when the Edmonds Fire Department will bring Carol off the roof to the rhythms of African drums and dancers.
Carol said that she is looking forward to her first shower in nearly four months and having some private time after being continually in the public eye. She expressed gratitude for all the well-wishers who have donated to the Fabric of Life Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization supporting cooperative development projects around the world. And it’s still not too late to donate to the cause here.
We’ll have more later on Carol and her reflections about spending four months on the roof. Meanwhile, plan to be there on Saturday.
