March/April News from Main Street Quilting Company 2019
We are already thinking about this spring and summer especially in light of the many inches of snow and then more snow that we have gotten last week. I'm very ready for a color other than white outside! We've been planning and scheduling classes and are now ready to share with you what is going on here in the next few months!
We are planning our Row By Row Experience pattern for 2019 and would love to hear from you... What block size did you prefer? Applique or no applique? Easy piecing or more complex piecing? Respond to this email with your opinions and your name will be entered in for a gift certificate drawing.
Speaking of drawing! We had a Crazy Day drawing for those who brought in their MSQCo logo bag. Debbie Q. was the winner of our $25.00 gift card. Thank you all who brought in their bags!
Birthday Club- Thank you ladies for a fun party on Friday evening. I appreciate you joining us and sharing your blocks with everyone. I love seeing the variety of colors and designs.
