Dear Customers and Friends,
We had a great time at the Minnesota Quilters' annual show in St. Cloud last week. It was great fun to see so many friends. And, the quilts on display were fabulous! Our very own Cheri won a 2nd place ribbon on the quilt she entered in the judged section of the show—we're so proud of her! You can see a picture of her quilt on our facebook page. We had a demo in our booth of one of our new Quilt Market finds—the Scrap Crazy 6" Template set. If you missed it, check out Susan's blog post to see the fun samples that we made.
The quilting fun continues! Now that the Minnesota Quilters' show is done, we're getting ready for the Row by Row Experience. It's a new kind of shop hop that 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—July 1 – Sept 2, 2014. There are no passports to have stamped. All you have to do is ask for the free pattern. 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 www.rowbyrowexperience.com for all the details and to find out what shops are participating or find information on our website.
Also in July, stop in for our Summer Sale on July 10 – 12. All regularly priced fabric will be 20% off. This includes fat quarters and bundles but not kits. We'll also be refreshing our clearance area with new additions to our 50% off fabric and more books will be added to our 30% off area.
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 sections and a grand prize for visiting all of the participating shops. Details are at www.quiltminnesota.com. 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! There's still space available on buses scheduled for Saturday, August 2 and Saturday, August 9.
Remember, you can shop hop in your pj's too! Check out the online shop hop at www.fabshophop.com . There's a new hop every month.
Did you do the Twin Cities Shop Hop in May? You have a week left to use your come-back coupon for $5.00 off your $25.00 fabric purchase during the month of June.
Coupon book holders—July is your Wild Card coupon. It's good for a 15% discount on one regular priced item of your choice (kits and finished quilts not included). It's a great time to pick up a book you've been thinking about or batting for your next project.
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 www.gladcreationsquilts.com
Hope to see you soon!
