Here is how the Virtual Trunk Show work?  

This morning, go to each designer's Facebook page and "like" or "follow" it so you will receive a notification before the trunk show starts. 

A few minutes before the time, go to the specific designer's Facebook page and watch the trunk show.  It will last about 15 minutes and in the comments you have an opportunity to ask questions.  The designer might not ask your question right away, but most designers will go back through the comments and answer after their presentation has ended. 

Don't fret if you miss a show, you will be able to go back to the designer's page and catch a replay.   

Each day, I plan on posting the schedule so you can follow along.

I took advantage of the snow and took some quilt pictures.

This is the quilt I made for our granddaughter Marcy Ellen.

We as a family enjoy games.  I highly recommend this game called Code Names.
