Greetings from Sharynn’s Quilt Box—April 2016 Newsletter
WHEE!!! We all made it through the Charming Shop Hop! Hope that all of you who participated enjoyed it. We loved seeing all our “old” friends and making new ones. It was a huge success again this year. Over all 407 passports were sold. That is awesome!
Everyone seemed to enjoy all the stores and expressed excitement over all the stores samples that were made from the great selection of charms that were exchanged by the shops.
The winner of the 3160QDC Janome machine was Maryloretta Resing of Independence, Ky!! Congratulations to Maryloretta!
Paula Martin of Houston, TX won the 80 fat quarters. Our store gift basket was won by Rosemary W. Wormald.
