Dear Customers and Friends,

The Twin Cities Shop Hop was a great success. We had such fun visiting with everyone who stopped by our shop. The Twin Cities shopowners got together Tuesday evening for our annual shop hop dinner and the highlight of the evening was drawing names of the prize winners. Did you know we gave away 53 prizes?! Two lucky winners each have a new sewing machine. Eight winners have a great new sewing chair. Three folks won a prize for turning in their "returner" card. And 40 lucky quilters won a $50.00 gift certificate to use at one of the shops. All of the winners have been notified. If you want to see if any of your friends won, stop by the shop and check out the list of winners. We've set the dates for next year's hop as May 1-3, 2014. Mark your calendar so you won't miss out!

So what's next? Susan and Nancy will be heading off to Quilt Market in Portland, Oregon later this week. We'll be checking out all the fun new fabric offerings for fall and keeping an eye out for some great new tools and books.

We're busy making plans for the Minnesota Quilter's Show. This year's event will be held in Duluth, June 13 – 15. Duluth is such a great location, we always enjoy our visit there. We've planned a great selection of quilts that we'll be showing in our Quilter of the Year exhibit. We'll have a vendor booth as well. Be sure to stop by and visit with us while you're at the show.

There's still more quilting fun coming along! Mark your calendar for Quilt Minnesota taking place August 2 – 18, 2013. We'll have buses touring the metro shops during the first 2 weekends of the shop. The buses are starting to fill so give us a call soon if you'd like to reserve a ticket.

Aren't we quilters lucky to have so many fun ways to enjoy what we love to do?

Last, but not least, Coupon book holders, be sure to stop in May 23 – 25 for a free fat quarter of a patriotic print, our selection. Also, come in from June 6-8 to redeem your Backing Sale coupon. Purchase 6 or more yards of the same regular price fabric and receive 10% off.

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!
Nancy, Susan & Emily
