Dear Customers and Friends,

We're busy getting ready for the Minnesota Quilter's show coming up this weekend in Duluth. Stop by and visit with us if you come up to the show! You'll find us in our Glad Creations booth where we'll be demonstrating some great tools for Log Cabin and Pineapple quilts. We'll also be spending time in our Quilter of the Year exhibit. Click here for information about the show and where to find us. As we've been getting ready for the show and planning our Quilter of the Year display, we've had fun thinking about some of the things we've done over the last 37 years. Check out Susan's latest blog post on some of those reminiscences.

We've had a fun variety of new fabric arrive at the shop over the last couple of weeks. The new line of dyed denim that we ordered at Quilt Market is here!
 We're planning to use it for jackets & tote bags, and we'll look forward to seeing some other fun uses. In the reproduction area we have a new line from Marcus Fabrics called Party of Twelve by Judy Rothermel. And with a more modern charecter, we have the new Andover group Passport designed by Bill Kerr & Weeks Ringle of The Modern Quilt Studio. It coordinates beautifully with their previous line, Victorian Modern. We're sure to be dreaming up some fun projects with these beautiful new lines.

Coupon book holders, be sure to stop in to use your End of the bolt coupon between June 20 - 22 and receive 20% off when you finish a bolt of regular priced 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!
Nancy, Susan & Emily
