Holiday Party!

Everyone had an joyful time at our holiday party hosted by Peggy Gelbrich and her band of elves. The pot luck was varied and delicious and there was lots of bubbly cider and sweet desserts.  Everyone brought a gift to swap and there were many, many lovely handmade items.

More homemade holiday presents

There were at least 80 attendees but we truly missed those who could not be there.  Hope to see everyone next year.

Our first two Quilt Block Trail installations are this Friday!

Our contractor, John Doctor, called this morning and we will be able to install the first two blocks on the trail on Friday, Dec. 5.  They will be at the Simpson Century Farm (31535 SW Simpson Road, Cornelius) and the Gates Century Farm (32720 NW Hornecker Road, Hillsboro)  starting about 9:30 am! 
 If you’d like to come and watch the install, you are welcome to do so!  We’ll be taking photos as these will be the first two blocks to go up! This is pretty exciting news since it has been two years since we first conceived of this project!
