Better (hopefully warmer) Days Ahead...

Oh, this dreary weather!
Well, I guess we just need to think ahead to better days coming…
Fun things like a Retreat, a Quilt Show, and Quilter’s Run!!!

Meri Walker has planned another fun Retreat at Hawthorne Suites!

Sew all day and most of the night, wear your jammies if you like!

You will get a special room rate (and free breakfast!) if you want to stay overnight- just let the hotel know that you’re staying over for the Retreat when you call to make your reservations at (760) 949-4700.

Bring your machine, sewing supplies and UFO's or other projects.
