With the Fall comes the NB Exhibition and our
raffle quilt goes on the frame.
The quilting on the raffle quilt was completed and a small
quilt was put on the frame and completed for Victoria Quilts.
Many hands make light work, the company and
 conversation made our visit to quilt so much fun.

Well that is all for now. Try to make it out to our work days. The dates and activities are in your newsletter.
