eNews for our Wholesale Customers
Hello & welcome!
So...I've had a nice long respite from traveling. Our last show was over 4 months ago at the Spring Quilt Market in Minneapolis, MN & while I’ve gotten a whole LOT done & I’ve enjoyed my time off the road, its time to get dead-serious about our next show, the Fall Quilt Market, which by the way starts in TWO DAYS! YIKES!
AND- we're unveiling a totally NEW look for this Market! If you'll be there, please come see us in Booth #823... but  if you won't be attending this year, please         CLICK HERE for a little preview!
