I would like to say a big THANK YOU to all who attended the Quilts by the Bay quilt show in North Bay this past weekend. It was a great success, thanks to all the hard working organizing committee, and the amazing quilters who entered their wonderful work, as well as those who attended the event and supported the quilters.
Our sample maker, Husqvarna Viking expert and instructor ,Lynne Mersereau won ribbons galore, Congratulations, Lynne!
