MARCH NEWSLETTER




We would like to say Thank You for all your condolances, cards, emails, Facebook messages & support during the recent lost of our beloved Mom & Grandma.  You have helped us more than you could every possibly know.
We know some of you knew, our beloved Dorothy Jean Severn & feel her lost as we do.  The support we received from you, our quilting friends was greatly appreicated.  Thank you, again.

Well folks, it's only 19 days until Spring!  Hopfully, the heavy snow will stay away until December.

It's been a great quilting year, though. Most people spent this winter staying inside & only leaving the warmth of their homes to go to work & get supplies.

We would like to remind everyone that our new meeting in front of the Athens Twp Zoning board is March 11th @ 6:30pm.  We would love to have you come out & bring a quilt to support us in our quest to purchase to the former Little Lambs Daycare building.  This building, as most of you know, will give us tons more room & off street parking.  We would like to show the Athens Twp Zoning Board that we do provide the community with cultural experiences by providing budding & experienced quilting artists with classes, supplies &, with the new building, a place to share your quilts to inspire others.


We will be celebrating Worldwide Quilting Day on March 15th with some special sales that will be announced when we get closer. 
Show your support by wearing something with a quilt or quilt theme that day.
How ironic that Worldwide Quilting Day is 4 days after our meeting.  Hopfully, that's a good sign.
