Hi all,

We’re ready for the new year. New fun classes, a Redwork Club. I’m trying to learn enough about sergers to have a serger class, and enough about machine embroidery to start an machine embroidery club. (Or could we learn together?)

We’ve painted the back floor, and finished more of the wall painting. I even started the trim work!

Quilt Run 101 starts February 6th. It’s going to be a great time. Our pattern theme is “A Fun Activity at the Beach” .
