Welcome to our first newsletter of the year! We hope you had a relaxing holiday break and were able to finish off  some projects, we have had lots of quilts flying in the door to be quilted.

There are lots of new projects and block of the months popping up online and we are all busy planning what we will be working on this year! The Shop is planning new patterns and an exciting block of the month so look forward to these coming out later this year.
