May 26, 2014

Dear Customers and Friends,

We've completed our last Scrap Tamers session for this year. What a fun group! We had a record number of folks completing their Scrap Tamers Mystery quilt and they are really fun! Cheri & Nathan were in charge of the final session and took pictures of all of the finished quilts. We put them together into a slide show that you can check out on our blog. We'll have a new Scrap Tamers club starting in September. The first day to sign up is Saturday, August 23, 2014. More details will be coming along in August.
Is everyone ready for a summer of quilting fun?! We sure are! The next not to be missed event is the Minnesota Quilters show. This year's show will be held at the River's Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud. Classes start on June 11. There's a sneak peek of the show and vendor's mall on the evening of June 11, then the show is open June 12 – 14. Enjoy 3 days of looking at quilts, shopping the vendor mall and having fun with other quilters. We hope you'll stop by our booth to say hi! Visit the show web site for all the details at
Next up is a new kind of shop hop. The Row by Row Experience started a couple years ago in New York State and has spread across the country. This year it will be happening in 31 states, including Minnesota! It's a simple idea without a lot of rules. Every participating shop designs a row for a Sew a Season quilt. Collect the free patterns by visiting the shops during the summer from July 1 – September 2, 2014. Create a quilt using at least 8 different rows and be the first to bring it into a participating shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters. Use that shop's row in your quilt and win a bonus prize! Visit for all the details and to find out what shops are participating.
And of course, the dates for Quilt Minnesota are August 1 – 17, 2014. Pick up your passport at the first shop that you visit. Travel the state and get your passport stamped. There are fun prizes for completing different sections and a grand prize drawing for those visiting all of the participating shops. Details at We'll have some fun things happening in our section! When you complete the Metro Section we'll have a nice gift for you—a 17 inch project bag with a keepsake Metro Section logo on it. Would you like to leave the driving to us? Give us a call to sign up for our Metro bus tour and visit all 8 shops in our section in one day for only $29.95! We'll have buses running Friday, August 1; Saturday, August 2 and Saturday, August 9.
Remember, you can shop hop in your pj's too. Check out the online shop hop at There's a new hop every month.
Did you do the Twin Cities Shop Hop in May? Remember to use your come-back coupon for $5.00 off your $25.00 fabric purchase during the month of June.

We're nearing the end of our Spring class schedule. We still have Annemarie's Embroidery for All class coming up Tuesday, June 17 & 24 from 6:30 – 8:30.
