Dear Customers and Friends,

You might notice some changes next time you're in the shop. Alice is retiring after 20-some years of working with us. We'll sure miss her, but I know we'll still see her in the shop picking for new projects. Nathan has gotten really busy with his day job and will no longer be a regular staff-member, although he might be around to help us out if we're in a pinch. Pat M. also retired this spring. She's looking to spend more time with her son and grandson out of state. I know we'll continue to see all of them in our after-hours get-togethers.

Wynn and Sharon are our newest staff members. Both are experienced quilters with backgrounds in a variety of techniques. We welcome them to our staff! Be sure to say Hi and introduce yourself if you come in while they're working. They're busy now learning all the ins and outs of a day in a quilt shop!

Just a reminder about some summer events:
The Row by Row experience started on July 1. We've had fun visiting with folks who are traveling around and picking up their row patterns. It will be so fun to see the quilts that are created! Row by Row runs July 1 – Sept 2. Click here for details.

Our Annual Summer Sale is this week! The dates are July 10 – 12.  Regular hours are 9:30 - 5:00. All of our regular priced fabric will be 20% off of the regular price. That includes fabric cut from the bolt, fat quarters, and fat quarter bundles. We'll also have loads of new additions to our half-price fabric section and our clearance books (30% off). Kits are not included.

Coupon book holders, remember that July is the Wild Card Coupon. Bring your coupon book in for a 15% discount on an item of your choice. Some restrictions apply.

Finally, we're looking forward to Quilt Minnesota. Visit shops all over the state or just choose a couple of sections to complete. We still have space available on our Metro section buses on August 2 or August 9. You can tour the whole Metro section in one day. Give us a call to register. Go to for all the hop details.

One last reminder: The shop will be closed on Wednesday, July 30 for inventory.

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!
Nancy, Susan & Emily
