The Book Club
- Feb 28, 2024 01:00 pm

Well, I decided that it would be fun to start a book club here at Finger Lakes Fabrics and tie it in with a sewing project. Once a month we will pick a book to enjoy and share. At the end of each meeting we will all receive directions for a quilt block swap for the next meeting. In no time we will have enough blocks to put together our own Book Club Quilt!!!
