The summer is speeding by and we hope that you are enjoying everything that goes with it. There has been lots of things happening at the shop, the biggest of which is Row-by-Row. It is so fun to see where the folks who come in for the patterns and kits are from. So far we have Alaska to Southern California, Michigan to Virginia and beyond. Congratulations to Judy Lugone who is our 2016 winner. Her quilt is beautiful!!! Come by the shop and check it out on our class room design wall.
