  1. Hello to all Modern Quilters.I recently moved back to Arizona from Gig Harbor, WA and look forward to participating in a local Quilters Guild group I have a Gammil/Statler long arm quilter and own Around the Block Quilting. My website, is under construction, but I am actively seeking new quilting customers.

    Your meeting minutes mentioned that someone has a baby quilt ready for quilting and I would appreciate the opportunity to introduce myself and my work to everyone in your guild. Please give my name and number to anyone looking for a long-arm quilter. My contact info is; Susan Perlow 602-820-8618 – I hope to be able to attend your next meeting. Regards, Susan
