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!
