The 31st Annual WWIB/Sew Complete "Warmth from Wisconsin" Quilt Contest quilts are now packed up and on their way to their final owners.
They are being distributed to Youth With a Mission and Apple Pregnancy Center, Inc., in Eau Claire. Youth With a Mission missionaries are currently working with the homeless population in San Antonio, TX, and Apple Pregnancy Center is working locally with new Mothers and families.

Class Spotlight The featured Class is Beyond the Qube-An AccuQuilt Quilt Series. This is a great place to expand your serger skills using a variety of serger techniques and oftentimes decorative thread. Everyone chooses their own project each time, and we help each person as needed with thread choices, techniques and tension.
