  1. How does an opportunity quilt get listed? The Friends of the Zion-Benton Public Library are raffling "Christmas Cottages."

  2. Hi Nann, We depend on readers like you to comment on any events we may have missed. The "Christmas Cottages" look wonderful in red and green ! Please also send information (or a link) on the date/place of the raffle, so that readers can participate if they are interested. We will add it to the list above. Thanks !

  3. I'll be visiting the Quilt and Craft Fair in Adelaide this week, this year I've decided to visit on two days so I won't be rushed. Not sure if I will take photos yet as I'm not sure about copyright etc.


We love reading each and every comment... thanks for visiting our blog!
