    Sharon, thank you for sharing you creations and stitches. I participated in three of your online classes a few years ago and I still refer to the materials as I go along crazy quilting.

    I enjoy Tuesdays’ stitches and feel encouraged to try them in my creations.

    I am excited to hear that you are working on a book. I look forward to its release.

    Regards,
