Happy Easter from Main Street Quilting Co
Happy Easter! What a fun time of year- Spring in Montana brings snowy weather and little sprigs of grass in my front yard! I remember the year we just had gotten a camcorder (years before our phones had a video option) and my tiny little nieces were in snowsuits for the Easter egg hunt along with hundreds of other bundled little bodies. I know we got someone on tape hunting those bright Easter eggs in the snowbanks but I'm not sure we could really tell which little ones belonged to us! Here's hoping the egg hunting this year has a few less inches of snow. This month, our newsletter is highlighting a few of the many spring offerings and happenings at the store. Be sure to stop in and let us show you all that is going on.
