Mark Your Calendars for Quiltapalooza!
The gang just returned from Fall Quilt Market in Houston with some great items. Don't miss out on seeing the newbies and getting first dibs to purchase and take these items home. Mark your calendars and make your reservations for Sunday, Nov. 23, from 2-5 p.m. We are limiting the number of spots at Quiltapalooza to ensure everyone is able to experience and enjoy the new products. Guests will pay $10 in advance to secure their reservation and receive a $10 discount on top of any additional Quiltapalooza discounts on purchases made that day. Once we meet the seat limit, we will open an additional session for sign ups.

Framed Log Cabin Class
