So sorry to have sent it out to you so many times. This time corrections to Bumblebee quilt and Lone Star. 

Welcome to another year of fun classes at the Patchwork Angel . Can you believe that the shop will have it's 20th birthday in March this year. Who would have thought that when we took over in June 2006 that we would be now celebrating this milestone. Where did those 10 years go? 
We have some lovely classes for you this Semester and our Friendship and Anything Goes groups are very popular and lots of fun. There is always lots of laughter and sometimes some tears in the classroom.
We have a new club for you, a Trunk Show with Bernardine Hine and another workshop booked with Jane McDonald of Bebe Bold. We are also delighted to have Fiona aka Quilting Fairy back teaching in our classroom this year and of course Jenny Clouston's Crazy patchwork/ Embroidery classes are always popular.
