Once again, we will have a Thrift Shop.  Items for sale here are all donated to the cause.  It is a great time to clean out your stash.  We will then turnaround and sell these items for whatever the consumer wants to donate.  If you have donations, please package up what you have and mark the package “Quilt Show Thrift Shop” and drop off at the Country Quilt Shop, 100 Exchange Place, Llano.  Proceeds from this sale are used by the Texas Hills Quilt Club for charitable projects.  Watch for more news about the Show as the date draws near.  A bigger venue means a bigger and better show.  Save the date.  Don’t miss this bi-annual event.
