postheadericon Upcoming Events!

The Comforting Quilter's have been working like dogs the past few weeks in preparation for our Mercantile store to be open and ready for business on May 1st during the Battle of Byron.

Stop by the Mercantile and enjoy a glass of home made root beer, a root beer float, a game of checkers or a jigsaw puzzle or a cup of boiled peanuts among many other items we will be selling.

You will also be given the opportunity to enter the Quilt Raffle for a beautiful quilt created by our team of quilters to help provide quilts of comfort to those in need.

In addition, the Bryon Depot Museum well be transformed into a historical walk down quilters lane, with a wide array of quilts provided by some of our local residents. These quilts all tell a story and the show promises to be a highlight to our Mercantile store.


May is a time to weed the flower beds, mow the lawns, enjoy a good steak on the grill and get those vegetables in the garden. CQ will be meeting as usual in May, and we hope to see some of you out!

June is seminar month! Let's have a class on quilting! Anyone have something in particular they would like to learn? Let me know and I'll get the class put together.

All for now. It's a beautiful Spring Day here in Middle Georgia!
