Exciting News!

Martelli Enterprises is back and sponsoring Champagne Preview! The exciting news is their sponsor donation of a $3500 workstation table, the “Advantage”, 39” by 59”, height adjustable, with large rotary cutting mat. We will be offering the opportunity to win this table through Quilters’ Walk for a minimum of a $3 sheet of tickets. Of course you are going to want to stuff the bucket with many tickets to increase the odds of winning it! We will have the workstation set up in the lobby Champagne Preview night and Quilters’ Walk for Thursday - Saturday. Good luck!

An Update!
