Glad Creations Inc., News & Notes

GladysDid you know that Glad (Gladys Raschka) will be having her 100th birthday next month?  Gladys retired from the shop about 20 years ago. Those of you who have been shopping with us for many years will remember her presence in the shop.  For those of you who don't know her, she's Susan and Nancy's mother and the namesake of Glad Creations.  
I recently posted a photo on facebook of Gladys taken with her quilts at the Walker Place art show.  We had responses from many who would like to send her birthday wishes - perhaps a card, a short note, or a memory. We think that's a great idea and will collect cards at the shop and deliver them to her closer to her birthday (August 21).

What's coming up:
