Glad Creations Inc., News & Notes

This newsletter is mailed every other Monday.

February 18, 2013

Dear Customers and Friends,

Wow! We're in the midst of so much event planning our heads are spinning! First, we're starting work on our Spring 2013 Class Schedule. We have some really fun ideas for new classes. Janet Moser's Machine Quilting class this winter was a real hit with her students, so watch for more from Janet! Cheri and Nathan are planning another one of their two-block quilts as a class as well. Watch for the spring class schedule in the mail and on our web site by the middle of March.

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 .

Next up is the Twin Cities Shop 'til You Drop, taking place May 2 - 4, 2013. This year we're calling it a Schoolhouse Hop. Each shop will be running a demonstration for a different tool or technique. We'll have some fun prizes for folks who get their passports stamped at all 8 shops—including a couple of sewing machines, some fun sewing chairs and loads of gift certificates! More event details.

Right after the shop hop, Susan & Nancy will be off to Portland, OR, for spring Quilt Market and lots of new inspiration!

We hope you're all planning to come to the Minnesota Quilters show in Duluth June 13 - 15. We'll have our booth as usual, but this year Susan & Nancy are honored to have been selected as Minnesota Quilter's Quilters of the Year. We'll have a special exhibit area at the show for our quilts. We're busy thinking about what quilts to include! Read more on our blog.

Plans are also underway for Quilt Minnesota which will take place August 2-18. There's a brand new Quilt Minnesota website this year where you can get details on the sections and see the fabric. Check back over the next few weeks as the sections get information posted about buses and special section prizes.

Coupon book holders, be sure to come in to use your Christmas Close-out coupon between February 18 - 23 to receive a 
30% discount on Christmas fabrics from the 2012 season. 

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
