Florida Quilt Network - Newsletter #79


October 2, 2004


Quilting Friends,


Don’t you love it when a great idea comes out of the blue…in the shower, on the treadmill, just before you go to sleep?  Well anyway, I came up with one: I’m going to start a new “club”, I think I’ll call it my “Frequent Contributor’s Club” (FCC) or my “Heads Up Club” for short.  This will be for all of you who might want a reminder that a newsletter will be published soon.  Just in case you need to submit a timely item; I don’t want miss anyone.


So if you’d like a head’s up about 48 hours before I send out my newsletter, send an email to FCC@FloridaQuiltNetwork.com and I’ll add you to this list.


I hope you came out the other side of Hurricane Jeanne intact.  I guess Charley had taken down everything around here that wanted to come down, because my neighborhood only lost a couple of dozen trees.  As opposed to a couple of hundred during Charley.


Another bit of news from FQN…my dear sweet husband gave me a website overhaul for an anniversary gift.   Pretty romantic, don’t you think? /g/  Take a look at it:

www.FloridaQuiltNetwork.com and let me know what you think.  I’ll forward the nice comments to him.


As always, if you think you’re missing out on a newsletter, check the website for the latest updates: www.FloridaQuiltNetwork.com
