Dear Customers and Friends,

Who's ready for a shop hop?! Join us this week for the 17th Annual Twin Cities Shop 'til You Drop quilt shop hop. Dates and times: Thursday May 1, 9:00 – 9:00; Friday May 2, 9:00 – 9:00; Saturday May 3, 9:00 – 5:00. You can download a copy of the map here or stop by any of the participating shops to pick up a copy. 
Visit all 9 shops to qualify for some great prizes. We want to thank Valley West Sewing, Gratz Sewing, and Just Sew Studio. These local sewing machine shops have each donated a sewing machine for our grand prize drawing. Also, nine lucky winners will receive an Arrow Sewing Chair (see them on display in all the shops). And, there's more…each shop is putting 5 - $50.00 gift certificates into the drawing. That's a total of 45 - $50.00 gift certificates. Everyone who completes the hop will receive a pattern for the Ripple Effects bed runner designed by Sandy Irish. Check out the shop hop facebook page to see photos of the runners that will be on display in each shop.

We've planned a Schoolhouse Hop again this year. Each shop will be demonstrating a favorite quilting tool. Watch the demo and you'll receive a coupon that you can use in June 2014 for $5.00 off your $25.00 purchase of regular priced fabric. 

Here's how the hop works. Begin at any participating shop. You'll receive a passport to get stamped at each shop you visit. We'll also have a TC Treat for you – that's a 10 x 12 piece of a "solid" batik. Each shop has their own color (our color is purple). Collect more TC Treats—you'll receive a bonus TC Treat with your $10.00 purchase. Next, watch the demo and pick up your come-back coupon to use during the month of June. When you visit your 9th shop, turn in your passport to enter the prize drawing for all the fun goodies mentioned above.
We're mostly thinking Shop Hop this week, but here are a couple of non-hop reminders. Coupon book holders: our Thread Special coupon is coming up May 8 – 10. Classes starting soon: Color Basics with Cheri starts Monday, May 5, 6:30 – 8:30; Invisible Machine Appliqué with Annemarie also starts Monday, May 5, 6:30 – 8:30. We're still participating in FabShop's online shop hop—check it out at

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!
