Reds & Lights Quilt Challenge
Group Photo
As part of our 11th Anniversary celebration and the Red and Lights Quilt challenge, we invite you to participate in a group photo session

Saturday June 8th

Shop Display
In addition, if you'd like your quilt displayed in the shop during the 11th anniversary celebration, we will need you to drop it off at the shop no later than 4PM on Saturday June 8th. This will give us time to get them hung up for the Anniversary Party 6/14 and 6/15. The quilts will be taken down at the end day on Monday 6/17 and you can pick them up any time.


This was a fun challenge and we are excited to
photograph and display all of the quilts.
The photo session and quilt display is totally optional for you.
If you have any questions, give us a call.

Thank you!
