Glad Creations Inc., News & Notes

This newsletter is mailed every other Monday.

September 30, 2013

Dear Customers and Friends,

Susan and Nancy have been having a fun time lately traveling around and sharing a little history of our shop and LOTS OF QUILTS with some quilt guilds in the area. They had a wonderful time with the Quilting Queens in Roseville a couple of weeks ago.  This week they met with the 3M Quilting Club—what fun to work somewhere that has a monthly lunch time quilt club! They enjoyed a tour of their recently remodeled building, too!  Coming up on October 9 they will be visiting with the Ripple River Guild in Aitkin, MN.  They look forward to seeing friends from that part of the state.

We've had a record number of batiks added to our shelves during the last two weeks! Come in and check them out.  While you're here, stop up to check out the new additions to our clearance area.

We're putting the final touches on our plans for this fall's Mystery #52. Those of you who are registered for Mystery Weekend will be getting the supply and pre-cutting list in the mail later this week. We'll also be posting a photo of our fabric selections on the Mystery Weekend 52 class description page on our web site.  It's not there today but look for it a little later in the week. We'll have kits available in both of our colorways. Give us a call to order a kit or stop in to pick one up. They should be ready by Saturday October 5. As always, we're glad to help you with your own fabric selection or give you tips if you're planning to cut from your stash.

We still have room in the Thursday/Friday session of Mystery Weekend which meets November 7 & 8. 

We're planning to have Mystery by Mail #52 ready to go by October 18. Send us an email if you're interested in receiving information and swatches for the Mystery by Mail 52 kits.  If you've already requested information and swatches, you should see it in mail around the 18th.  

If you're a Scrap Tamers participant trying to decide which of the Stash Pot Pie quilts you'd like to make, check out our bulletin board upstairs for pictures of the quilts that are planned for the whole year.  

Cheri's Handquilting class starts Monday October 7, 6:30 – 8:30. In addition to working on your hand-quilting stitch, Cheri will cover various tools to make your job easier, and will demonstrate the "big stitch" technique.

Coupon book holders: do you need some needles? Stop in with your "buy 3, get a 4th package free" coupon between October 3 – 5. 

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
