Deer Country Quilts Newsletter

 March 2023

When I shopped at Deer Country Quilts for the supplies for my first quilt in high school Home Economics class, I truly "had no idea that it would come to this."  I enjoyed the class and loved my beautiful quilt, but I definitely did not catch the quilting bug.  It was over a decade before life brought me back to Seeley Lake as a stay-at-home mom who had nothing better to do than come into Deer Country Quilts every day to stare in amazement at the beautiful fabrics and quilts.  After weeks of this, Pam asked me if I wanted to work for her one day a week...and the "harmless hobby" began.  Here I am, almost another decade later, living a dream I never knew I had.  I am so grateful that this "harmless hobby" turned into the inspirational and creative outlet that I needed.  I may have too many projects in process or lined up for "someday," but I will never regret it.  Thank you to all of you who have helped me along this journey!

Thursday, March 9th
Join us for a fun day of sewing and eating lunch with your friends!  Bring a any project you want to work on.  Lunch will be served around noon.  Please let us know by Wednesday (the day before) if you will be coming, so that we can be sure to have enough food.
