Glad Creations Inc., News & Notes

This newsletter is mailed every other Monday. Excuse the delay this week after storms took out our power and internet!

June 29, 2013

Dear Customers and Friends,

We're getting back into our normal routine after returning home from the Minnesota Quilters show.  The show was fantastic!  We had such a nice time in our Quilter of the Year exhibit, visiting with many friends, both old and new.  Many folks shared that they took their first quilting class with us or came into the shop for help selecting their first quilting project. There were even a couple long time quilters who took their first quilting class from Nancy before we opened the shop 37 years ago! Check out Susan's blog post featuring some of the quilts from our exhibit!

We spotted lots of quilts at the show that were made from Glad Creations patterns and have been posting photos on facebook.  Check out our page to see the variety. While you're there, be sure to "like" us to stay up to date with what's going on at the shop. 

Now that the quilt show is done, we're getting ready for Quilt Minnesota. Amy has assembled a fun Quilt Minnesota window display so you can see all of the fabrics that will be available during the hop. There are still seats available on the buses that will be touring the metro section on the first two weekends of the hop—give us a call to reserve your seat.

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
