Best news first: We are the District Dealer of the Year for Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin…thanks to all of you, of course!  Smile



We took some wonderful classes while at BU.  This one is a cutwork and applique class on the 830 with Lunchbox Quilts!  Look at the sea of 830s – heavenly!
