We will be starting new Second Saturday BOM in July --- We will be having Eleanor Burns - Barns and Victory Quilts. Please let us know if you are interested so we will have books in stock. A reminder how this works is -- the first month you purchase the book and pay $5.00. for fabric for first block. Next month you bring in your completed block and you get the fabric for the next month free. You will have to purchase your sashing and borders fabric down the road. You may stay and sew on your new block when you come in on that Saturday.
