September 2, 2013

Dear Customers and Friends,

Happy Labor Day!  Labor Day is always the sign that summer is over and fall is right around the corner.  It’s time to think about cooler weather and a little more sewing time.  Hope you are having a great day with family and friends and maybe doing a little extra quilting.  Glad Creations will be closed today, but will open Tuesday at 9:30 when we will be getting ready for a surprise event! 

We will hold a one-day sale on Wednesday, September 4, the day that the two huge trees in our backyard will be removed.  To do this, the power company has to drop the lines—so no power!  Let's make this into a fun event!  Come and shop on Wednesday between 9:30 and 5:00 and receive 10% off regular priced fabric when you pay in cash or with a check. (We won’t be able to run any credit cards!).  Not only that, but receive an additional 10% off your fabric if you bring a flashlight. Sound like fun? We hope so!

A special thanks to all of you who participated in the Quilt Minnesota Shop Hop.  Our metro section gathered last week and drew names of the prize winners which are now listed in the shop.  Congratulation to those lucky winners!  Plans are already underway for next year’s Quilt Minnesota Shop Hop.  We still have some totebags and most of the prints from this year’s fabric.  Stop in and check it out!

Scrap Tamers Signup on Saturday, August 24th was wild!  We filled all 3 sessions in the first hour!  We will add a 4th session at 2:30 if we have enough interest and are now taking a waiting list for that timeslot.  Call and add your name if you are interested.  Don’t know what Scrap Tamers is all about?  Download an information sheet  or stop and pick one up in the shop.  You can also go to our blog and see photos of the optional Scrap Tamers Mystery Quilt Bundles.

Our fall lineup of classes will be starting soon!  There are still openings in many of them, so check out the class schedule online or come in and pick up a schedule. Classes starting soon are the Pineapple Quilt on Saturday, September 7, Appliqué with Pat Cox starting on Saturday, September 14, Basic Binding starting on Tuesday, September 10 and Color Basics starting on Monday, September 16. 

Coupon Book holders, stop in any time in September to use the Hit the Books Coupon and receive 15% off any regular priced book of your choice.  And come in between September 5–7 to get a free fat quarter in honor of Susan’s birthday.

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
