ROW BY ROW ADVENTURES STARTING JUNE 22
Calico Cottage, Hastings Nebraska will be one of the store you can visit on your Row by Row experience.   Deb, manager, created a wonderful row by thinking about the Ogallala underground water supply, also with the famous Nebraska windmill.

   
   Our Row by Row Winner at Calico Cottage.  Joan Nienaber from Hastings.  She did some traveling with her sisters to California and Oregon, so all the rows are not from Nebraska.  Great Quilt Joan!
 

Vending at QuiltNebraska 2015 - some of the shots from our booth.  Great friends and a wonderful vending show.
