April Newsletter 2021
Spring has finally sprung! I'm sure that you have your Easter plans ready to go and you're looking forward to planting your gardens and your flowers. If you're looking for a touch of spring, be sure to come in and see all of the beautiful fabrics. The colors are absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to see all the colors outdoors as well. The Block of the Month Club kicked off in March, but it's not too late to join. The sample is back from the quilter and it screams spring! You will love it!
Quilter of the Month

LInda Lee is our April Quilter of the Month LInda has been quilting around 25 years and taught herself by reading books and magazines. She had a good background in sewing from her mother and from an amazing home ec teacher before she started quilting.
When she began quilting she loved the 30's prints and still does, but enjoys working with all fabric styles. She still has to try out the Civil War prints.
She loves working with Creative Grids rulers. She uses the 8 1/2 x 24 inch the most. She feels that the rotary cutter is the best notion ever invented.
Linda has several favorite designers including Kim Diehl, Gathering Friends, Doug Likso and Lori Holt. She enjoys applique and paper piecing but prefers piecing.
She gets her inspiration from quilt shops, magazines, You Tube and Show and Tell at Gone Quilting. She loves the challenge of trying something new! Check out Linda's window the next time you're in Manchester!
