  • 4-Night Retreat at the Bunkhouse in Quitman
  • 2-Night Retreat at the Alford Inn in Van Alstyne
  • 1 of 60 $25 gift certficates
  • a FQ bundle containing 15 fat quarters
At each Region 2 store, you will receive a different collectable Villa Rosa pattern. To get your pattern, you have to have your passport stamped.

We received our fabric yesterday and it is available for pre-sale. We will see you in September when the summer's through!
