February Newsletter from Quail's Nest
January has been a joy! There have been many new quilters start the two Beginning Quilt Classes offered this month. We have had busy days with customers from near and far. We really enjoyed Cindy Mammon from Oakley who came to teach Polka Dottie! She is thorough and a pleasant teacher. It was so much fun to see the different fabric choices in this paper pieced project! We are asking her to come back and teach freezer paper applique March 17th. She is such an expert. See the details below.
