New Classes and More at Watergirl Quilt Co.
Good Morning Crew!It's a gorgeous autumn day here in Prescott and a wonderful time to go for a drive. We had fun seeing many of you in for a visit yesterday.First off, the staff and I would like to wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday weekend. Watergirl Quilt Co. will be closed Saturday, October 9th so that all of our staff can enjoy having a long weekend as we are normally closed on Sunday's and Monday's anyway (but you can shop online). While we are excited to have a long weekend and see family and friends, we also know that holidays can be lonely for many people. So if you have a neighbour who is alone this weekend, consider whipping up a mug rug for them and drop it off with a little note to let them know that you are thankful to have them in your community. Little acts of kindness go a long way in life. I've certainly learned that in the past 18 months!
So on with all the news! There is so much to share that I will try to make it quick by giving you the links to find more detailed information instead of writing a book. lol.
