The raindrops were falling lightly when I walked into Quilter's Haven the other day. April showers. As though it was meant to be - the first thing I saw when I walked in the shop -- a pattern by Indygo Junction for a "Partly Cloudy Poncho." The second thing that I saw was a delightful array of wonderful fabrics that Quilter's Haven has PERFECT for a rain poncho. Suddenly April showers might be lots and lots of fun....

This week owner Jean Graham lost her mother, Agnes Bergee. Jean's mother, like Jean, was a kind, caring, compassionate and very special person. Jean and her mother both shared a love for fabric, textiles, and quilting. Jean and her mother were very close and this loss will be hard on Jean and her family. The family service is this evening and the funeral is tomorrow. Jean has always taken time to care for us - her customers and her quilting family - now it is time to show her that we care! So - here's sending her our thoughts and prayers!
