Dear Customers and Friends,

Spring is here and the Twin Cities Shop 'til You Drop quilt shop hop is just around the corner on April 30–May 2, 2015. We have lots of fun plans, including demos at every shop and great door prizes. Each shop you visit will have a little gift for you too, a TC Treat (that’s a 10” x 12” cut of a solid color fabric). This year we challenged each other to make a project using TC Treats. We made a small quilt using the Rick-Rack Spools Quilt pattern from Quilts Remembered (photo at right). Check out the Twin Cities Shop Hop facebook page to see the projects that some of the other shops have planned. More about the hop: Everyone who visits all 9 shops will be entered into a drawing for some great prizes. We'll be giving away a sewing machine generously donated by Valley West Sewing. We'll also be drawing names for 9 winners of an Arrow sewing chair. One lucky winner will receive a Tutto sewing machine cart. That's not all...each shop will be putting 5 - $25.00 gift certificates into the drawing. That's a total of 45 gift certificates. Lots of chances to win! All the details are available on our website. Stop by and pick up your map so you can start planning your hop!

Be sure to mark your calendars for the fun summer quilting events coming up. The Minnesota Quilters’ annual show takes place in Duluth this year. The dates are June 11–13. As always, there will be beautiful quilts to enjoy and some fun shopping in the vendors area. We hope to see you there!

The Row by Row Experience is scheduled for June 21–September 8. Travel around the U.S. and Canada collecting patterns that each shop has designed. Check out the Row by Row website for all the details. Watch the Row by Row Facebook page. Shops will be posting their rows as they have the designs ready.

Have you started planning for Quilt Minnesota yet? The Quilt Minnesota hop runs July 31–August 16 this year. Check out the Quilt Minnesota website to see the 2015 fabric design and find out what’s happening in each section. Join our Twin Cities bus tour to visit all 10 shops in the Metro section $39.99! It’s a 2 day (Friday & Saturday) bus tour of our Metro section on the first two weekends of the hop. Give us a call to reserve your seat now! 

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!
