    My local quilt guild celebrates Nation Quilt Day every year with a great gathering of members. Over the years there have been wonderful quilting tutorials, sit and sews, games, and, of course lots of good food. Last year those that wanted to, worked on our raffle quilt. There are always suggestions of what to do and this year we will be making charity quilts. Lots of laughs and lots of fun. Quilting rocks ;>}

    Hiya Lace: Yep, knew it was Nat'l Quilting Day. It's always right around my BD (the 16th of March) plus, now it's also during my spring break from school. I plan to celebrate big this year--headed off to a retreat from March 11 thru March 18!

    My LQS always has an open house on March 19th. My DH thinks it is silly that a quilt shop that is open 7 days a week has an open house. What does HE know!!!
