Creekside Quilting Newsletter 06/25/2019
It's with a sad heart that I need to announce Patty Barrett is retiring from Creekside Quilting! She has been here 16 plus years. She is such an asset to Creekside , she will definitely be missed by her co-workers and our customers. Her last day on the floor is Wednesday, July 3rd, so please come in this Wednesday or next to wish her well and to share memories from over the years. What's New @ Creekside Quilting? I love this new book and it's obvious that you are excited about it too! We received this book in, placed it by the quilt on our back wall in the reproduction area, and within a few hours, we were sold out! It's on re-order, and will be available this Friday again... Another book that's been hard to get and then keep in the store is Jo Morton's Hearth and Home! Jo Morton did not disappoint us with her new book...it's a keeper! Preparing for Lori Holt's upcoming sew along, we have received in the store, her templates for Granny's Garden. Order Here
