Deer Country Quilts Newsletter

  September 2016

I hope everyone has had a good summer.  We have enjoyed getting to know a few of our summer visitors and will miss them as they move back to there other lives.  We know we have made friends from all parts of the country!  Fall certainly feels like it is just around the corner.  The weekend forecast is for rain and to be in the 50's.  The 1st college home game is this weekend.  My oldest grand daughter just started kindergarten. Starbucks begins serving their Pumpkin Spice Lattes. The daylight hours are beginning to get shorter. Yep, it is beginning to feel like fall! Fall in Montana is a beautiful time to travel.
Their are several local quilt shows to take in.  Also be sure to check out the details of the mini shop hop we are a part of! What a great way to get inspired especially if you have taken a break from quilting for other summer activities.  Happy Quilting, Pam

Note: starting on September 11th, our Sunday hours will be from 12:00-4:00
