I already have several projects going, and am going to teach a class to some of the ladies at church. Not sure exactly how I got picked for that one since our church is like 150 years old and out in the country. I am sure that there are waayyyy more qualified people than me to do this. Dear MIL is determined that I do it tho, so whatever I guess.

A friend of mine is taking a beginner class in nearby Eagan at a quilt shop that I had not been to yet, so I happily decided to just…

I really have not had good luck with mine at all and the customer service has been the worst of the worst.
