Dear Customers and Friends,

Who's ready to think about spring? We are! We're currently working on plans for the Twin Cities 17th Annual Shop 'til You Drop.  Mark your calendar for May 1–3, 2014.  We'll be continuing with the Schoolhouse theme that we started last year.  Each shop will be demonstrating a fun tool or technique during the hop, so you'll learn something new at every shop you visit. The big news this year is that we've added 3 additional  shops to our hop! Participating shops are Bear Patch Quilting, Blue Bamboo, Eagle Creek, Four Seasons, Glad Creations Quilt Block, Millie P's Quilt Shop, Quilt Cove, Quilter's Haven and Twin Cities Quilting. That's a total of 9 fun shops to visit!  Watch for more shop hop news over the next couple of months. Stay up to date by liking the shop hop facebook page .

Have you joined the online shop hop at We're participating this month. Check it out—there are prizes to win and lots of fun online shopping to do.

We have upcoming classes with updated scheduling due to our winter weather. If you thought about taking these classes but they didn't fit in your schedule, check out the new dates:
Also a reminder about Cheri's Lone Star class.  We added this class to the schedule on February 22 and March 1 from 10:00–1:00. There are just a couple spaces available.
