A big round of applause to every single one of you beautiful people who donated funds to Teens Alone! In thanks to those who sent money, you'll be getting a handmade coffee cuff (as seen in the latest Quilting Arts) by Yours Truly. (I admit I'm addicted to making these coffee cuffs for holiday gifts.)
The three lucky winners who will be receiving a set of Quilting Arts Magazine Back Issues 2-6 are:

In other news, tonight we're hosting our annual Quilting Arts LLC staff Christmas party in my in-laws' barn. Sounds a bit rustic, but it's a beautiful place and has a warm and inviting function room where people can gather and enjoy one another's company.The barn holds a lot of history for Quilting Arts. Years ago when I got it in my head to start a magazine but couldn't afford office space, they took pity on me and let me set up a computer and a phone line there. So it's rather fitting that the barn has become the place where our staff gathers annually to celebrate the spirit of the holidays. And of course my in-laws are our guests of honor tonight!
