January 2015 Challenge: Let's Dance!

Our first meeting of 2015 was well-attended and we talked about our club's plans for the year ahead.

One of the highlights will be a 3-day workshop at the end of September taught Peggy Wilson of Ashton, Ontario. There are just a few more spaces available, so contact Michelle if you'd like to attend.

Some other events of interest:
Timeless Treasures Quilt Show, Langford, BC, April 17-18
Sewing & Stitchery Expo, Puyallup, WA, February 6-March 1
