Farmers Wife Celebration of Quilts

There are over 60 people making the Farmers Wife Quilt at The Pine Needle. 
The first classes started in January of 2010, more started in March and then again in the summer.  
Here is our first celebration of quilts. 
 The women gathered on Thursday night for a potluck supper and show and tell of their quilts. 
 Many many hours went into these quilts, and no two are alike.  
Take a look and enjoy these quilts.

Hanging By a Thread Quilt Show

We were so fortunate to welcome the quilters of "Hanging By a Thread"
 quilt group at a reception on Friday evening.

This amazing group of women has been quilting together since 2004 
and have created some amazing and award winning portrait quilts.  

Their quilts are on display at The Pine Needle this weekend.
We've posted them here, but they are really worth seeing in person. 

 Try to make it into our store this weekend to see their amazing quilts.
