One day you might see...

Visit to Bay Quilters meeting and REMINDER - it's sale week

Bay Quilters invited me to take the shop to its April meeting. 107 people attended, which is a great turn out, and there were some beautiful quilts on display. It was nice to be a part of the day. On the day I sold Ruth some Pink Sands Designs bag kits, and she kindly brought the finished product into the shop to show me. You'll see from the photo below how nicely these bags turn out. Great work Ruth. Just a reminder, our sale is on now and ends on Tuesday at 5pm. Come in for some great bargains. See...
