Dear Customers and Friends,

It's finally spring—but not quite time to be out in the garden yet. How about joining us for one of our fun spring classes! We still have a couple of openings in Carole Wilder's Maintaining Your Featherweight class on Saturday, April 19 from 1:00 – 4:00. This class is a great way to learn how to keep your vintage Singer Featherweight sewing machine in top running condition. Also, there are just a couple spaces left in Annemarie's Beginning Rotary Star Sampler starting Tuesday, April 22 from 6:00 – 8:30. You'll learn the basics of rotary cutting and machine piecing in this 4-session class. Janet will be teaching the Basic Domestic Machine Quilting class on Saturday, April 26 from 10:00 – 3:00. This hands-on class is a great way to learn the basics of machine quilting.
More signs of spring... the Twin Cities Shop 'til You Drop quilt shop hop is just around the corner on May 1 – 3, 2014. We have lots of fun plans, including demos at every shop and great door prizes. Everyone who visits all 9 shops will be entered into a drawing for some great prizes. We'll be giving away 3 sewing machines donated by generous area sewing machine dealers: Valley West Sewing, Just Sew Studio, and Gratz Sewing. We'll also be drawing names for 9 winners of an Arrow sewing chair. That's not all...each shop will be putting 5 - $50.00 gift certificates into the drawing. That's a total of 45 gift certificates. Lots of chances to win!  All the details are available on our website. Stop by and pick up your map so you can start planning your hop! 
Have you started planning for Quilt Minnesota yet? Check out the Quilt Minnesota website for all of the details. Join our bus tour to visit all 8 shops in the Metro section in one day for only $29.95!  We'll have buses touring our Metro section on the first two Saturdays of the hop—August 2 & 9. Give us a call to reserve your seat now!
We've completed this round of Mystery Weekend workshops in March. As many of you know, we snap photos of the show and tell that we participants bring in during the Mystery Weekends. Visit our blog to view a slide show of this great show & tell.
Coupon book holders—stop in April 24 –26 for our April Showers Bring May Flowers coupon. You can pick a fat quarter of a floral print from our special selection. 
We hope some of you have been participating in the monthly FabShopHop. There's still time to try out the April hop. Visit shops online and find the hidden bunny. There are lots of great prizes. Visit for all the details and a list of participating shops. There will be a brand new hop starting in May, too. Give it a try!
So much fun happening this spring. Are you looking for a fun job where you can play with fabric all day? We're taking applications now for an upcoming job opening. Give us a call if it sounds like fun to you!

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
