March Fat Quarter Lotto:
For this month's FQ lotto, please bring a fat quarter in a color inspired by our logo for our anniversary! Choose a print or solid in bright turquoise/blue, pink, lime green, or black. Everyone who enters an FQ will receive an entry into the drawing to win the entire pile (or split into 2 or 3 piles/winners if we have many entries!)
This month we're excited to welcome our very own Sam Hunter of Hunter's Design Studio! Sam will be presenting her lecture and trunk show "The History of Word Quilts." Also on display will be Sam's QuiltCon winner for Third place in Handwork, "Why I'm a Feminist." She will have copies of her book, Quilt Talk, available for purchase along with over 60 of her patterns!
