The Show Goes On

Our Booth
We had a wonderful time at the Forsyth Piecers and Quilters Show today.  So many talented volunteers worked VERY, VERY, hard to make this show a success!

The quilts entered in the show are fantastically beautiful.  We are so proud of all our customers who won ribbons--and there are a lot!!  Heck, I'm proud of everyone who finished a quilt in time to enter it:  quite an accomplishment in these busy times!

Come be inspired Saturday, March 17, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday, March 18 from 1-4 p.m.  Directions and details are here.  Not only will you see all the beautiful quilts, but the Guild is running a silent auction and boutique with goodies for you to purchase.  The vendor area is filled with even more treasures!

Come see us!
