Hello quilting friends! Can you believe that it's March already? The first day of spring is this month, and we're hoping the weather gets the hint and starts to stay warm. But, I guess, we don't control the weather, so we'll wait and see what happens.
In the meantime, we're going to be prepping for next month's events. We've got two events coming up in April that you should be aware of: 1)The Original Sewing & Quilting Expo will be
held April 2-4 at the Cleveland IX Center.If you've never gone before, we recommend checking it out. Every year there's a large variety of vendors (Miller's being one of them), along with classes that you can sign up for. For more information on tickets & classes, you can visit their website: www.sewingexpo.com
. As for our booth, we'll once again have the beloved bin full of yard pieces, as well as lots of other handmade items, notions, and kits that you'll want to come see for yourself.
2) The Quilting n' Cuisine Mini Shop
will be held Tuesday, April 14th & Wednesday, April 15th. Passports are available for either day and can be purchased by calling any of the participating shops ($10 pre-register, $12 at the door, if passports are still available). On the day that you choose (14th or 15th) , you'll be able to visit each of the five shops to get your passport stamped and pick up a free mystery wall hanging pattern and free recipe card. Then you'll meet at the Heritage Community Center in Winesburg at 3pm to view each shop's wallhanging and sample the food.
