As we finish 2010, I am truly grateful for all of you
who brighten our days with smiles, warm
thoughts, a note here and there, or a cheery
phone call. From the first week of opening the
store and having several people come in just to sit
and visit, I knew a quilt store should be more than
just retail sales.
Our Dress a Doll program was very successful this
year; thank you to all who came and got a doll to
dress -- they are super. A special Thank you to
Sheila Brown who made five small quilts to go
with the dolls. If I can find dolls, this may be a
continuing program.
As we get this newsletter ready to go out, I get so
excited about the new classes and teachers we                    TNT                 BSR                 CAS
