Those of you who have been with us from the beginning know that we opened Kelly Ann's Quilting in March of 2005. We're coming up on our sixth anniversary and we have a calendar loaded with activity.
On Friday, March 4th and Saturday, March 5th the Minnesota Road Show is coming to Virginia. 4 designers, 4 styles 4 fun! We'll have a lot more information in our mid-month update, but we do know that we'll be offering two sessions per day that will include demos and lots of fun showing off the trunk show from these four great designers.
On March 12th & 13th stop by the Cabin Branch/Stone House Quilters Quilt Show in Manassas, where you'll find Kelly Ann & Jackie manning the Kelly Ann's booth. Make sure to stop by and say hello. Check out the show's website for more details.

Old Town Warrenton Events
You know how we at Kelly Ann's love Great Harvest Bread located across the street. Well, they are having a function that increases that love. On Saturday, February 12th, they will be having a book signing affair called Love, Bread & Books.
Jennifer Heyns will be there to sign her book, Bargaining for Our Lives. In her book Jennifer writes that "anyone can learn how to navigate the world of healthcare properly: find quality healthcare professionals, negotiate costs, research diagnoses, alternative treatment options and medications and become your own healthcare watch dog."
Stop by to pick the perfect gift for that special someone in your life, a little love, a little bread and great little book, all put together in a cute little basket that says "I care."
