Dear Customers and Friends,

Writing this while watching snowy sleet come down fast and furious, it's hard to believe it's spring here in Minneapolis! We're hoping some sun and warm weather will be right around the corner, along with the
2013 Twin Cities Shop 'til You Drop coming up on May 2 - 4, 2013. We're busy finishing up some new samples and getting the shop all spiffed up. We're calling this hop the Schoolhouse Hop. You'll be able to watch a demonstration at each shop. After you watch the demo you'll receive a come-back coupon that you can use during the month of June for $5.00 off on a $25.00 fabric purchase. Plus, visit all 8 shops and you'll receive the pattern for our Twin Cities Treat quilt. You'll see the quilt made up at each shop in a different fabric style. There will be loads of great prizes too. We'll have door prizes at each shop. Those of you who visit all 8 shops will be entered in a drawing for a Janome Sewing Machine donated by Valley West Sewing or a Husqvarna Sewing Machine donated by Gratz Sewing. In addition, 8 lucky hoppers will win an Arrow sewing chair, plus 40 hoppers will win a $50.00 gift certificate for one of the participating shops. So many great prizes on top of really fun event!  Maps are ready and are available in the shop so you can start planning your tour! Event details, photo our our quilt and a sneak peek of the chairs here.

Spring classes are off to a great start. Give us a call right away to sign up for Annemarie's Redwork 101 class to learn some great embroidery basics. Its scheduled for Tuesday, April 16, from 6:30 – 8:30. We also have a couple of seats left in Janet's Basic Binding class starting Monday, April 22, from 6:00 – 8:30. Maintaining Your Featherweight with Carole Wilder is also coming up really quickly, on Saturday April 27, from 1:00 – 4:00.
  If you own a Singer Featherweight sewing machine, this class is a must!
