Dear Customers and Friends,
What a busy time we have coming up! We're looking forward to spring and all the fun quilting events. The maps are ready for the Twin Cities Shop 'Til You Drop, May 2 - 4, 2013. Stop in and pick one up so you can start making plans. This hop is going to be so much fun. Each shop is planning a demo of a tool or technique, so you'll learn something new at each shop you visit. Not only that—visit all 8 shops to enter our drawing for great prizes. We're giving away a Janome sewing machine donated by Valley West Sewing, a Husqvarna sewing machine donated by Gratz Sewing, and 8 winners will receive an Arrow Sewing Chair. And there's more...each shop will be giving away five $50.00 gift certificates—that's a total of 40 chances to win! More information here.
There's still time to start our Mystery by Mail 51 quilt. We have kits available in two fun colorways—Civil War and Batiks. Take a look!
Our Spring 2013 Class Schedule went out in the mail last week. Click here to see the listing of classes on our website or download the schedule as a pdf.
Make plans now to visit Duluth for the Minnesota Quilter's Show, June 13-15, 2013. Susan and Nancy are busy choosing quilts to include in their Quilter of the Year exhibit at the show. We'll also have a booth, as always. Be sure to stop by and say "hi" when you visit the show.
Are you looking forward to Quilt Minnesota, the statewide shop hop? Mark your calendars for August 2-18, 2013. Our Metro section will be running buses to make it easy to visit all the shop in our section. Check out the details on our website then give us a call reserve your ticket. The Quilt Minnesota brochures were just delivered. Stop by to pick one up.
Coupon book holders, be sure to come in to use your Spring Tune-up coupon between March 28–30 to receive a 10% discount on supplies for your sewing machine, including machine oil, machine needles, bobbins and cleaning brushes. Then, on April 8–13, join us for our Fat Quarter Fun Coupon. Buy five of our pre-rolled or pre-folded fat quarters and get a 6th fat quarter free (equal or lesser value is free)—no limit!
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 www.gladcreationsquilts.com
Hope to see you soon!
