Dear Quilting Friends,
Happy New Year! We hope you had a amazing holiday season! As usual, we celebrated on the 24th with our daughters and their families with homemade goodies, gifts around the tree and dinner that included chicken cooked outside on the grill.
This cold weather is a great time to get those UFO’s finished up or to get started on a new project! If you read Dan’s Ramblings last month then you know that I am getting a new Longarm (yippee) so my plan is to get as many of those UFO’s completed as I can before spring. I really need to organize and count all the projects in the “to be quilted” closet ~ although last time I did that I was totally overwhelmed with the quantity (close to 40). Did I mention I might have to break Dan’s sewing machine?
Now that the holidays are behind us and the new year is here it’s time to get your space reserved for one of our 2018 Quilt Camps. If you have been “on the fence” about signing up don’t delay any longer! We would love to have you join us for one of these incredible learning experiences with Certified Studio 180 Instructor Michelle Renee Hiatt.
