The Craft Fair was a huge success.

Wow!! The Craft Fair

is behind us and if I do say so myself it was a great success. Thanks to all who helped put this great event together. Two lucky ticket buyers won a beautiful quilt each. Photos will soon be on the blog --- but before then I would like to catch up on what has been happening of late and get those pictures up.
So here we go.

To the readers of the Gone To Pieces Quilt Guild blog, I apologize! Heather showed me how to access the site, write the blog, put in photos, even schedule for later publication. But even with my notes in front of me I have been unable to do any of the above except write. Even the scheduling did not work out.  So while I am in this learning curve please bare with me.
