It’s been a busy year so far;)
It’s one of the seasons that lectures placed on the calendar months ago come around., workshops and Open Quilting Studios are in full swing and a website almost done;) All way more exciting than accounting and tax preparation.
I’ve updated my ‘TEACH‘ page with January’s Open Studio times and have one spot left in January’s featured workshop, Split Personality. You’ll see February’s featured workshop and Open Studio dates up soon.
Happy Quilting Peeps!
