Hope everyone had a great summer. It's hard to believe it's fall when it's a beautiful, sunny 80 degree day and we have the air conditioner running. I'm sure it will cool down pretty soon. When it does, we have lots of new fabrics for your quilting needs.
Just thought to update you on some events and classes coming up.
This weekend, September 16-17 we’ll be at the Quiet Valley Quilt Guilds' Bennington QuiltFest from 9:00am-5:00pm each day. Come say “hi” and see some wonderful quilts. Very inspiring!
