February 4, 2013

Dear Customers and Friends,

The Twin Cities Shop Hop is right around the corner on 
May 2 - 4, 2013 and we have some really fun plans in the works for this year. The theme is the schoolhouse hop. Each shop will be demonstrating a different tool or technique. There will be lots of fun prizes too—including sewing machines, gift certificates and more! More information here!

Coupon book holders, don't forget to come by for the Valentine's Day Special. Redeem your coupon between February 14–16 to receive a free fat 1/4 of a heart print from our special selection. And, later in the month use your Christmas Close-out coupon between February 18–23 to receive 30% off specially tagged Christmas fabrics from the 2012 season.

Mystery weekend 51 supply lists will be going out in the mail this week. We'll have kits available in 2 tempting fabric combinations. The batik version should be ready around February 7. We plan to have the civil war version ready by February 14 (we're still waiting for the final fabric shipment).  Check out the Mystery Weekend 51 class description on our web site to see photos of the fabric selections for the kits and to download a pdf version of the supply list.

Can't make it to Mystery Weekend? We're getting ready to start Mystery by Mail 51 at the beginning of March. This will be the same quilt as mystery weekend but we'll send out clues in the mail. If you're interested in receiving swatches in the mail, send an email request to .

And, as always, don't forget to "like" us on facebook to stay up to date with what's going on at the shop.

If you can't make it into the shop and there is something you are interested in, please call us at (612) 724-1079 and we'll be happy to answer any questions about products and take your order over the phone. Or, visit our website at

Hope to see you soon!
