If you have received this Newsletter for a 2nd time, my apologies.  Google and/or Yahoo seem to think this is “spam”.


Anyhow, trying to re-send it once again, under another format, in hopes that it works.


Thank you for your patience!  


On the other hand, if this is the 1st time you’ve received this Newsletter….

YEAH!!!  It worked!!!



*keeping my fingers crossed*




Hi There!


Isn’t Spring incredible?!?!?   I think we can all say we’ve had enough of Winter!


Newsletter did not go out, in:


January – my Dad was very ill.

Febuary – my Dad passed away.

March – I was grieving.

April – I’m still grieving but life continues and well, here I am, sending out a Newsletter on the 22nd.


Sooooo, here goes!

I’ve recently created a web page Calendar for the Marco Polo Quilt Guild.

Most of these classes, you don’t need to be a Guild Member, okay?  Just check with the Mary Arseneau.  She’ll tell you if there’s room for 1 more and what the costs are. J


Oh… one last thing!  I know it doesn’t give you much time but there’s the Annual Maine Shop Hop.  It’s on till the end of April.

Well, that’s about it, folks.
