National Quilting Day Retreat Saturday March 17


We had a wonderful time yesterday sharing our love for quilting.  Many sporting the green honoring St. Patrick’s day, we met new people, we quilted, we ate and laughed, played games, learned “the quiltmakers shuffle”, and won prizes ( more than $400 retail value). Everyone went home pretty tired….and some even got some work done on their projects. Here is a recap of the prize winners:

Miscellaneous Sewing Notions – Colleen Dekker

Timeless Treasures 4 Fat Quarters stacks – Barb Bredemeier, Ann Prins, Kris Kennedy, and Lauretta Burrows
