Tidbits and Nuggets of Information

Not the most intriguing blog title to get excited about but I have lots of tidbits and nuggets of information to share and where else to share them than right here!

First up, Garden of Quilts.  The format and the way we experienced Garden of Quilts last year is changing to recognize and be mindful of our current state of affairs surrounding Covid-19.
