Creekside Quilting Newsletter 11/12/2019
Oh the weather outside is frightful! Yes, I think winter is arriving and it could be long....so...I just want to update everyone on our store closing policy due to inclement weather. IF Des Moines Public Schools close early, chances are good we will too! We will send out an email if we are closed for the day, closing early or opening late. We will also post this on our website www.creeksidequiltingiowa.com We will do our best to contact people in our classes if a class is postponed or delayed, but please call (515)276-1977 if you are uncertain.What's New @ Creekside Quilting?
