Glad Creations Inc., News & Notes

This newsletter is mailed every other Monday.

December 9, 2013

Dear Customers and Friends,

I hope everyone is staying warm. These are good days to stay inside quilting! Our winter class schedule has gone out in the mail.  You can also find it posted on our web site if you've chosen not to get paper mailings from us. We'll have loads of fun classes coming up, so check it out.  The first day to sign up for winter classes is Thursday December 12.  You can register by phone or stop by the shop and register in person.  

Have you heard about our December Demo Days?  We've put together a list of some of our favorite quilting tools and will be demonstrating one of them each day during December. It's always fun to learn something new, but the best part is that each time you stop in to watch a demo you can add your name to our drawing for a $100.00 Glad Creations gift certificate. Each Sunday we'll post a list of the demos for the coming week on our website.  We'll also be posting reminders each day on facebook.

We have some fun events coming up in the new year. We'll be hanging our annual staff quilt show from January 1 - 11. This year we've all been working on Two-Color Quilts.  As always, our rules are pretty loose, so it will be fun to see what we've each come up with.  No doubt they won't all fit the traditional definition. We've posted pictures of a few of the quilts as they've been completed on our facebook page

We'll be putting together a Glad Creations Coupon Book for 2014. It will include special discounts or give-aways for the whole year.  Our coupon book is free with any in-shop purchase between January 1 - 11.

Last, but certainly not least, don't miss our New Year's sale on January 1 - 4, 2014!

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

Best wishes to all,
Nancy, Susan & Emily
