Glad Creations Inc., News & Notes

This newsletter is mailed every other Monday.

November 11, 2013

Dear Customers and Friends,

We've been having loads of fun opening packages of goodies that we ordered at Quilt Market. Many of the new items are listed below. Just to highlight a couple of product lines—Joan Hawley (Lazy Girl Designs) has created a new line of pressing tools in conjunction with Clover. The makers of Soak have a new product called Flatter, a non-starch pressing spray. We like the way it sprays a very fine mist. They've also come out with a very nice hand lotion called Handmade.  

We're busy at work on our winter class schedule. Among the new classes, Annemarie will be offering Embroidery for All using new patterns from Bird Brain Designs. Julie will be teaching another Judy Neimeyer pattern called Cattails in the Meadow. Carole will be offering an advanced level class for Singer Featherweight maintenance—Beyond Basic Maintenance. This class is for those mechanically inclined folks who've taken her basic class and would like to dig into their machine a little more.  

We're planning some fun demos for the month of December. We'll be showing a different tool or product every day! Each time you come in to watch the demo, you'll also get a chance to add your name to a drawing for a $100.00 Glad Creations gift certificate. Watch for more details in the next email update.

Coupon book holders, be sure to come in between
November 25 – 30 (closed nov. 28) to use your Thanksgiving week coupon.

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
