  1. Where do I find info on DCMQG at Craft South? Are members going to Nashville? fran

  2. Hi Fran-
    A link to information about Craft South was sent to all members. There is more info at Anna Maria Horner's Craft South website too.

  3. Hi Y'all, I've moved from quilting to sewing clothes and have a sh_t-ton of fabric I'd like to sell. I've got it boxed, labeled, and I'm wondering if I could come to your March 11th meeting and see if anyone is interested in taking some of it off of my hands? My email is Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. Also I have images I can send if you'd like. My stuff tends to be tone on tone but there are not many solids, which I know modern quilters like. Jut let me know.
