    • Hi, Bonnie – the recipient (or recipients) are still being worked out and we’ll get the info out as soon as we can

    • There will be room but not oodles of it. This is the time to bring one small project, not a queen size quilt to baste or FMQ. Thanks for asking. Looking forward to meeting you
