Happy New Year

Dec 31, 2009

Enjoy your New Year's Eve.

Starting Monday and hopefully continuing throughout the year we are going to have a 'Deal of the Day'. I know I can not keep up with one a day so the Deal of the Day will be active for a week. Hopefully each Monday we will put a new item on special. You will not have to enter a code it will just be specially priced. Our first special will be the panel on our home page. Diane Phalen's winter quilts. It's regular price is $7.00 Until January 10 at midnight EST it will be priced at $6.50 for the 8 picute panel

The Senator John Heinz History Center is having a 'Quilter's Weekend' on January 23-24. There will be an Antique quilt display, machine demonstrations, hands on activities and quilt book exchange. There is also a Special presentation on African American quilting and a behind-the-scenes look at Gee's Bend/Nia Quilter's Project. To check this out go to www.heinzhistorycenter.org
