Dear Customers and Friends,

We're busy working on the Spring Class Schedule. We'll have some fun new offerings! Cheri & Nathan will be leading a workshop to make another of their Sew-n-Sew quilts. Janet will be teaching a much requested class on quilt binding. Julie is bringing back the popular Bali Wedding Star class. Our class brochure will be going out in the mail toward the middle of March. A pdf version will also be posted on the web site by the end of this week. The first day to sign up for spring classes is Thursday, March 21.

Our Twin Cities Shop 'til You Drop shop hop is just around the corner, taking place 
May 2 - 4, 2013.  We're calling this one a  Schoolhouse Hop. You'll be able to watch a fun demo of a tool or technique at each shop that you visit. We'll be demonstrating the new Creative Grids Log Cabin Square-up tool. Who knew Log Cabin quilts could be even more fun to make! When you watch the demo, you'll receive a come-back coupon for a discount on fabric during the month of June.  More event details.

Our Quilt Minnesota Metro section group has been busy working on plans for this year's event - August 2 - 18. 2013. We'll be offering bus trips during the first 2 weekends of the hop with 6 different pick-up locations (3 locations each weekend). We're offering a 2-day tour for only $39.95! Choose your pickup location and you'll meet your bus at the same site on both days. Give us a call to reserve your seat! Check out the Quilt Minnesota 
website for all the shop hop details.

Coupon book holders, be sure to come in to use your St. Patrick's Day Special coupon between March 14 - 16 to receive a 
10% discount on green fabric.

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!
