Dear Customers and Friends,

We hope you’re enjoying this beautiful fall weather. We’re all ready to head to our sewing rooms to start some new projects. How about you? Some of us here have been working on samples for Kim Diehl’s Simple Whatnots Club. These fun little quilts use her Vintage Farmhouse fabric line that came in earlier this summer. The samples will be appearing in the shop soon along with kits to make them!

We have some fun classes coming up if you’re looking for some inspiration. Are you new to quilting? Beginning Quiltmaking with Patricia Cox starts Tuesday, September 16, from 6:30 – 8:30. Patricia teaches the basics of traditional quiltmaking. You’ll learn to cut out your fabric pieces and stitch by hand as you create traditional blocks for a 9-block sampler quilt.

Would you like to learn how to clean and maintain your Singer Featherweight machine? Carole will guide you through a maintenance session on your machine in Maintaining your Singer Featherweight on Saturday, September 27 from 1:00 – 4:00. If you’ve already taken Carole’s basic class and would like to dig into the inner workings of your machine, join us for Featherweight: Beyond the Basics on Saturday, October 11 from 12:30 – 4:30.

Get your machine quilting questions answered while you learn the basics in Basic Domestic Machine Quilting with Janet Moser. This class will be held Saturday, October 4 from 10:00 – 3:00.

Learn how to appliqué by machine with an invisible stitch. Almost looks like hand applique! Annemarie’s Invisible Machine Appliqué class will be held Tuesday evenings, October 7 & 14, 6:30 – 8:30.

Coupon book holders—come in any time during September with your coupon book to receive 15% off of any regular price book. We have lots of titles to choose from.

Have you checked out the fabshophop yet? It’s loads of fun hopping from website to website looking for the hidden bunnies. We’re participating again this month. Visit to find out about the fun prizes.

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.
