Dear Customers and Friends,

Thanks to everyone who participated in Quilt Minnesota. We had such a fun time hearing about all your travels! Our Metro section will be getting together later this week to draw our prize winners from the hoppers who completed our section.  Four lucky hoppers will win a retreat for themselves and some friends! Retreats have been donated by Dragonfly Dreams in Lake City, Cozy Home Retreat Center in Kasson, The Getaway in New Prague and Kellwood in Hastings.  In addition, 45 lucky winners will receive a $50.00 gift certificate for one of our Metro Section shops.

Class registration day started off with a bang!  We were busy taking registrations on the phone for a good share of the day.  Most classes still have space available so if you haven't selected your fall class yet, check out the class schedule on our web site.

Scrap Tamers sign up day is just around the corner.  Come in or call on August 24 to reserve your place.  We have the information sheets ready if you'd like to stop in and pick one up ahead of time!  Or click on the link to download a copy from our web site. It should be a busy day so come prepared to stand in line, we'll take registrations as quickly as we can. 

Coupon book holders, stop in between August 20 – 22 to pick up a free fat quarter, Glad's Favorite!

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!
