Heartfelt Thank You

To all those who volunteered at Balloon Fiesta in the NMQA booth, thank you so much. Finances have been very tight for NMQA, and success with this major fundraiser was absolutely critical. Because of your efforts, 2013 sales exceeded 2012 sales. Yea, NMQA can now pay the bills! - Afton

Also, NMQA workshop sign-ups start next Monday, so make sure you sign-up for any classes you want to attend before they are sold out.
