One of the most common questions we keep getting is when can we start classes and events? We know everyone is anxious to get back to these things and to see all of their quilting friends. We are watching the guidelines for Colorado & New Mexico VERY closely... and as soon as we get the green light, we will let you know. For now, classes/events will be virtual - read below to find out more!
