Creekside Quilting Newsletter 12/03/2019
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and possibly a little time to quilt! I spent the day with this birthday girl! Happy 24th Anna!
Thanks to everyone for your patience and understanding Monday, as we completed our inventory count! It was a long day, but I do have to tell you, I have the best staff around....I could hear plenty of laughter throughout the day while they were were weighing bolts of fabric and counting, counting, counting! There may have been a couple of times I heard them singing to the Christmas music....they made a not-so-fun chore such a fun and happy day!
