News from Quilter's JEM for the week of 4/9/21

1525 Central Ave NW / East Grand Forks MN 56721 / (218) 399-0159 / www.quiltersjem.comHello Friends

The weeks seem to fly by, and this has been another busy one at Quilter's JEM!
Wednesday morning I had the fun privilege of being the guest on Coffee with Kay, a Facebook live interview that Kay Derry, owner of Northern Roots Boutique.  Kay's goal is  to promote local businesses run by women.  I enjoyed sharing with her how the shop started and what we've been up to in our first 2-1/2 years of business. 
If you'd like to see the interview, go to facebook and check it out!!  Also, visit Kay's shop, Northern Roots Boutique, in person or online-she carries super cute clothes!
