March 23 Newsletter
Things are winding down...and
friends are going their separate ways for the summer...it's always hard to say
goodbye...so as our Quebecois friends say...Au Revoir...Until We See you
Safe travels to all as you head home or out and about to escape
the Arizona heat. Remember the laughter, the hugs and the wonderful camaraderie
of our sewing room as you work on projects this summer. Bring them to show us in
the new season! Check into our Facebook page "Palm Creek Quilt Guild" and say
hello or share what's under your needle. We look forward to touching base with
those no longer able to join us through our Facebook page...see you there!
(Dang it...where's the kleenex?!)
