Hoppin Bobbin E-Newsletter

Hoppin Bobbin would like to congratulate the
Milltown Quilters Guild for their Blue Ribbon in
the MD State Fair! They won the "Quilts made by
an Organized Quilting Group" class. This is their raffle quilt for their Guild show, April 16th-18th, 2015, in Columbia, MD. We will be selling raffle tickets for them here at the shop. The quilt will
be hanging at Hoppin Bobbin in October for you
to see! They did a fabulous job piecing this quilt
and I would like to thank them for allowing me
the pleasure of custom quilting it for them.

Congratulations again!
