Spring has Sprung!! I love that the grass is greening up and the flowers are popping out of the ground. I love the early spring bulbs that even pop out when there is a little snow on the ground.  Hoping for no more of that this year.  Ready for nice weather.

We just finished up our Country Roads Shop hop it was a great hop got to see a lot of people.  We all enjoy spending time with our customers.  There is another one coming up at the end of the month so if your u for a road trip this is a fantastic hop with some great shops.  Two new ones this year check it out, it is a great way to get out and see part of the country along with along with these great 9 Quilt Shops and we give away a Brand New Bernina!

We also just finished up with our first ever virtual retreat it was a hit.  We had so much fun retreating and reaching out to others in this group.  These gals were so much fun, I can't wait to have another one tentative date on a Fall retreat is Nov 12th - 14th, 2021.  So keep a look out for the sign up of this retreat.  We are hoping to have our first Annual retreat in January sometime we are super excited for that as well watch for more information soon.
