~Palmerton's Christmas in the Park~
If you want to see a beautiful sight, visit the Palmerton Park in the evening to see all the lighted Christmas trees. The Quilted Crow tree is on the pathway to the playground. I dedicated the tree this year in honor of Anita’s life. I know that typically once someone passes, the dedications are made in memory of someone, but I remember Anita every day, when I looked at the samples she made or when I fold fabric into fat quarters the way she taught me. I wanted the tree to celebrate Anita’s life, her artistic talent, quilting knowledge, great business sense, and warm personality which made the shop special. I hope you will find the time to visit the park and remember how Anita touched your life.
