Hello Everyone,
We had a big weekend in Sanford, NC at the Quilting and Fiber Art Marketplace.  We really appreciate your support and attendance. We had a great time seeing friends that we hadn’t seen in a long time.

This newsletter is all about The Quilting and Needle Art Extravaganza show in Statesville, NC, which is in two weeks.  Enclosed is a list of our vendors, and news about the door prizes.  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 220 Cafe.  Dorcas Troyer and her fabulous baked goods will be there too.
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?
