Dear Customers and Friends,

What a fun summer we've been having! We're enjoying the Row by Row Experience. It's been fun visiting with folks from all around. We've even had a few sons and daughters in who were asked to stop in to purchase our fabric license plate and pick up our free row pattern while they're in Minneapolis on a business trip! There's still plenty of time—the Row by Row hop runs through September 2. Check out details on our events page.

We've been busy planning the fall class schedule. It's at the printer now and will be mailed during the last week of July. If you still get paper mailings, watch for it in the mail during the first couple days of August. If you've switched over to electronic notifications, it should be posted on the web site by August 1. Make a note on your August calendar—the first day to register for fall classes is Thursday, August. 14.

We're planning another session of Scrap Tamers that will be starting in September. Once again, it will be on the 3rd Saturday of each month, September through May. We'll have registration forms with all details ready for you to pick up by August 9. We'll also have samples of the optional kits for the Scrap Tamers Mystery Quilt ready for you to see at that time. Our Scrap Tamers sign-up day is Saturday, August 23.

Quilt Minnesota is just around the corner. Shops all around the state will be welcoming shop hoppers from August 1 – 17. We still have a few openings for buses touring the 8 metro shops on August 2 and also on August 9. You can visit all 8 shops in one day for $29.95! We'll have some fun gifts for you when you're touring the Metro section. Each Metro shop will be giving away a fun quilt pattern from Villa Rosa with any $10.00 purchase. These fun patterns feature the Quilt Minnesota fabric line. When you've had your passport stamped at all 8 metro shops you'll receive a 17" x 17" clear vinyl project bag featuring a commemorative logo.

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

There's lots of quilting fun coming along. We hope to see you soon.
