...We've Missed Blogging ~ Let's Try This Again!

It’s now time to end our apparent Blog Hiatus. As many of you noticed, we’ve been having technical difficulties with our blog, and while it’s still not quite back to 100%, we are absolutely thrilled to be able to use it again! (Three cheers for Paul C!)

 ...So what are some of the things we've we been up to since our last post?

Out of all the entries in the AccuQuilt Contest, Heather’s AccuQuilt Block design won an Honorable Mention! We hope she keeps designing and can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!

Spring Water Designs received the Handi Quilter Way Award for the 4th year in a row, and the Handi Quilter Top Sales Award for the 3rd year running!

Quilts Around the Bay Shop Hop had a successful Second Year, and the shop owners have started planning Year Three for March of 2019!

Spring Water Designs formed a team (SWD Quilters for a Cure) to participate in the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Walk MS fundraiser. SWD Quilters for a Cure raised over $5,000 in support of research and treatment provided by the Society to the Multiple Sclerosis community. Once again, we offer a huge thanks to all our donors, we couldn't have done it without all of the support!

We also had the honor of hosting the HandiQuilter Truck! For our Truck Event, we had the fabulous Diane Henry teaching a weekend of classes with a classroom outfitted with HandiQuilter’s new Amaras!

Between all of that, we vended at several quilt shows, had many classes at the shop with amazing teachers, Clubs, Free Studio Stitch-in Days, and shared lots of quilty connections with old and new friends...We even added a new little future quilter to our family ~ Charlotte Grace was born last month! Ashley, Bobby & their fur babies are all doing well, and enjoying getting to know Little Miss Charlotte :)
We're looking forward to all the new experiences to come ~ Stop by the shop, or connect here on the blog or our Facebook Page, and share what you've been up to with us!

Enjoy the day!
