There will be over 100 vendors displaying and selling their arts & crafts, flowers, food, entertainment and much more at Village Green Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Twenty-five percent of the quilt proceeds will be donated to the Malone Scholarship Fund at SPRD–a fund that supports recreational, sports and art programs and activities for Sisters’ youth.Can’t make it into the library and the June family festival?

Time does fly by when you don’t pay attention. Have a great day, I’m off to iron (sew exciting..not.) I’ll be back soon with some finished knits next time.
