Catherine’s potholder swap is completed now that she has received hers from others in the community. This reminds her of a program she recently watched on the Missouri Star Quilting Company of Turning Point TV: another example of how fiber can bring people together. http://www.byutv.org/watch/bf7e0de7-69e2-4aaf-a538-5605e64a350f/turning-point-the-missouri-star-quilting-company
