Animal Parade 2 Trunk Show

Shop News
The Vermont Shop Hop wrapped up recently.  Please remember that the shop will be closed from April 1 through April 15.  We will reopen on April 16 when Sue heads off to the quilt show in Paducah.  During this break for housekeeping we will still be checking emails and voice mails.  Carolyn will also be catching up with her quilting.  If you need to bring or pick up a quilt during the period the shop is closed, please email Carolyn to make an appointment.  Our plans are in progress for our Spring Retreat but the retreat is fully booked.  We do have a waiting list in the event there are cancellations.

Animal Parade Trunk Show
As promised, the staff from Country Treasures has made each of the quilts from the delightful book, Animal Parade 2 by Cheri Leffler for our very own Country Treasures trunk show.  Here are photos of the ten quilts from the book:  Hoppy Trails, Pachyderm Pals, Panda-monium, Turtle Tale, Oh Deer!, Masked Mischief, Sweet Tweets, Pride in the Posies, Hedgehog Haven and Pigs in a Blanket.  Our thanks to Sue Ashe, Carolyn Niesuchouski, Linda Bazin, Christy Thomas, Jim Adams, Heather Allen, MaryJane Palumbo, Sue O’Dea, and Sharyn Priester for their talents.
