On behalf of all of us at Pinwheels and Friends


We would like to thank you for attending the first Annual Pinwheels and Friends show at Sturbridge, MA on November 10-12, 2016.


We hope that you found Pinwheels and Friends informative and worthwhile. Our primary goal was to offer a show filled with vendors, classes and lectures promoting the joy of quilting. 

We believe that the diverse classes and lectures offered had provided a plethora of techniques and information for attendees. We would like to thank our talented teachers and vendors for sharing their knowledge.


The Quilt-cationers had a marvelous time and I’m sure will continue sharing their quilting experiences as well as the friendships they formed. 


Your presence helped to make this event a great success and your enthusiasm and positive spirit helped make our time together both productive and fun.  We wish you all the best and hope that you continue the joy of quilting and plan to visit us next year in Sturbridge, November 30, December 1-2, 2017.


We welcome your comments and suggestions and we assure you that each will be given consideration so that future events will be even more of a success.


Thank You.
