It's A Party

It's A Party!

As a prelude to the Row by Row experience coming this summer, we are particpating in the Postcard Party.

Each state has a printed fabric "postcard." You make a mini quilt of your choice, fuse it to the foam batting along with the "postcard" front. Bind the edges. Bring the finished postcard to the shop by January 15, 2015. We will mail it to the central clearinghouse shop. For each postcard you bring in, you will get one in return.

The postcards will also make a nice label for a quilt. Get yours today - $5 each!
