As we blast through the first month of 2015, I’d like to share a few tidbits from our January Grand Opening at Fabrics Galore and Quilting Store.
Our Grand Opening was a success. The weather was perfect. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed a wonderful attendance from the Quilting Communities of the North Georgia area. A big THANKS goes out to all of our fans and customers for your support and kudos. We’re thrilled to have successfully traversed this big event!
Many of those who attended our Grand Opening celebration enjoyed our refreshments and especially the homemade cookies. We received many requests for the recipe which we’ve posted below!
