I am looking forward to spring, longer days, warm sun and all the quilting activities and events that are on the horizon. We are getting more excited about our anniversary celebrations including our open house on April 25. There will be draws, specials, demos , lots of fun and of course goody bags. A number of our suppliers have even come on board to help with prizes and giveaways.

The January draw winner of a $25 Gift Certificate was Pat G. I want to thank everyone who came to The Quilt Place during Jan. We had a very successful customer appreciation sale.

Feb draw winner is Judith Heal, who also received a $25 Gift Certificate

We are continuing to make monthly draws. March’s draw is also for a $25 Gift Certificate. Future draws may be for items we have received from our suppliers to help us celebrate our anniversary.
