November, 2018


The Peace by Piece Quilters Raffle Queen will still be collecting tickets for the BIG raffle currently in progress.  You know, one of those really cool items that we offer chances on for more than one month.  This time it's an Ottlight.  

Check out the Raffle Table this month to check out all the Ottlights features and purchase your tickets. The winning ticket will be drawn at the Holiday Party in December.  Need not be present to win.





  A GREAT BIG THANK YOU to those who delivered rack cards for display to area quilt shops.  The rack cards will help get the word out about Peace by Piece Quilters and bring more attendees to the bees.



Here's the forth installment of "The Dedicated Quilters" survey.  So far we've learned Who the Dedicated Quilter is, their Fabric Buying Habits, their Thread Buying Habits. This month we'll cover Batting Buying Habits of the Dedicated Quilter.
