Hello Everyone,
I’m on the mend and just in time. Luckily, Cindy has stayed healthy.  She’s been busy caring for the rest of us and generally taking care of business.
This newsletter is all about The Quilting and Fiber Art Marketplace show in Sanford, NC, which is next weekend.  Enclosed is a list of our vendors, news about the door prizesand early bird specials.  I hope you are ready for a Big Quilter’s Day Out.  Plan to come early and stay all day.  Parking is free and we’ll have food in the lobby from Gigi’s Catering.
Not sure how you feel about crowds?  Keep in mind, the show is less crowded in the afternoon than it is in the mornings.  It’s also less crowded on Saturday than on Friday.  If you are there in the afternoon, that’s when we give away the sewing machines.  Who doesn’t need another sewing machine?
