  1. It was wonderful to see everyone that came out with their special dishes to celebrate Christmas with Quilting friends! Copies of the recipes will be needed for some of those amazing dishes. Special thanks to the terrific Christmas committee for doing such a great job organizing and setting up for our celebration.
