January Newsletter - Quail's Nest Quilt Co., LLC

A bright new year is before us, and we have some fantastic classes and teachers scheduled for this coming year!  I have Lynn Wilder scheduled, Cindy Mammon is coming on the MLK,JR. weekend, and I have spent an early evening with Mo Gonzales as she presented a literal "trunk" show of her quilts, and I met with Petra Keller about presenting a skill each quarter that we always wanted to know how to do.
Our website is live now!  As soon as we enter a class on the computer it loads onto the website, if you know of others who are not receiving emails since November, please have them go to and reregister.  The messages given in December are still available under the Newsletter heading.
