Dear Customers and Friends,

The Twin Cities Shop 'til You Drop is here! Join us May 2 – 4 for our Schoolhouse Hop.

  • Pick up a passport and map at your first shop.
  • You'll receive a TC Cut (10" x 12") of a Kona Solid at each shop that you visit. Each shop has their own color—ours is orange!
  • Drawings for door prizes at each shop.
  • Check out our quilt. We've all made up the TC Treat quilt in our favorite fabric style. Kits will be available while they last. You'll receive the pattern for the quilt when you turn in your passport at your last shop.
  • Watch our Glad Creations demo. Our demonstrations will be running continuously throughout the hop. We'll be demonstrating a great new tool for making one of our favorite quilt blocks - the Log Cabin.
  • After you watch the demo, you'll receive a come-back coupon to use in June worth $5.00 off for every $25.00 of fabric purchased.
  • When you've visited all 8 shops and turned in your passport, you'll be eligible for some great prizes (must be 18 years old), including:
    • Janome sewing machine from Valley West Sewing
    • Husqvarna sewing machine from Gratz Sewing
    • One of 8 Arrow sewing chairs
    • One of 40 - $50.00 gift certificates for one of the participating shops.
Join us for all the fun! Special hop hours: we'll be open Thursday and Friday 9:00 – 9:00 and Saturday 9:00 – 5:00. 

Check out our web site for all the details.

Coupon book holders, be sure to redeem your Stock up on Thread coupon between May 9 – 11. Buy three spools, get a 4th spool FREE (lesser value is free).

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
