T HE R OSSI F AMILY V ISION Nancy's Sewing Basket is a family owned and operated store that has been in business for over 34 years. Nancy’s Sewing Basket was opened in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle Washington in by John and Jacqueline Rossi with their daughter Nancy as manager. Their dream was to have a retail store that would serve the community which their family has been a part of since 1902. Nancy's Sewing Basket was the first new business to open on Queen Anne in many years and helped to revive the community business district.4 The original location, a

block from the current Nancy’s Sewing Basket, was opened in what long time resident s of Queen Anne will fondly remember as Elsie’s Five & Dime, and current residents know as Caf Ladro. John Rossi was a constant presence on Queen Anne Avenue and well known to everyone. He took pride in the community and his business that doubled in size in 1979 and expanded again in 1980. For the first 6 years John could be seen every morning opening the shop, sweeping the sidewalk and greeting customers and friends. John also worked with the community to bring trees to beautify Queen

Anne Avenue. Because of his dedication, Queen Anne has trees that line the Avenue today. In the spring of 1983 he received an award from Mayor Royer for his work in the community.
