Some of may not know this, but Cotton & Chocolate is one of Maureen McCormick's favorite stores. Maureen (a.k.a. Marcia Brady) has been coming to see us for many years and is a big fan of Marilyn's English Paper Piecing techniques.
Maureen came to us last May to shoot a short video as part of the "Back Home With The Brady's" feature on HGTV. While this has been out for a while now, we wanted to make sure you all had a chance to see it. We always loving seeing Maureen come to the store and visit.
