“Nothing truly stops you. Nothing truly holds you back. For your own will is always within your control. Sickness may challenge your body. But are you merely your body? Lameness may impede your legs. But you are not merely your legs. Your will is bigger than your legs. Your will needn’t be affected by an incident unless you let it.” ~ Epictetus Quilt Show Committee Meeting Meets every 3rd Thursday of each moth at Copper Canyon Quilting at 4pm. All are welcome to come and see how the Show is progressing.

Come help us out!
