NCN June - "In Person" Meeting

 Our 1st in person North Coast Needlers meeting in more than a year!  Woo Hoo!  It was so fun to see friends and smiling faces, to exchange greetings and stories and most of all share quilting and sewing projects that we have been doing at home. So much to talk about, so much to share with our friends.

Pins and Needles representatives  spoke on Accuquilt fun!  We learned about all the advantages to help make quilting easier and more fun!  Who know that you could die cut fabric so easily!
