Joanne has started the Chino Valley Quilters' Library. She asked members to bring in any books, DVDs, and magazines they no longer wish to store and they will become part of the library for members to check out and return. Please remember to bring your books and etc. to each meeting.
This month we added a link to the AQS Blog that has over 50 ideas for how to store fabrics and so much more information available on their website. Just click here for more. . .
