Special note from Kevin - Rent our classroom - New Classes plus Lorna Moffat
People ask me "How do you know what fabric and notions to order"
Dragonfly Quilting & Gifts has been open for almost 5 years.
During this time relationships are built with our customers, staff and educators.
Everyone becomes the "Fabric" of the store, and your comments and ideas are "Woven" into what Dragonfly Quilting & Gifts is today.
Last week, I was able to spend two days with the Nicola Valley Quilters Guild in Merritt.
During this time I was able to talk to individuals, learn what they do and listen to what they are looking for.
As an individual, I was able to learn from my mistakes, because individuals took the time to talk to me.
Just as in life, communication is important. We always learn from our mistakes.
If we do not know what we did, we can not fix the problem..
Thank you for all your support.
