Dear Customers and Friends,

The Twin Cities Shop Hop was a great success. We had such fun visiting with everyone who stopped by our shop. The Twin Cities shopowners got together Tuesday evening for our annual shop hop dinner and the highlight of the evening was drawing names of the prize winners. Did you know we gave away 53 prizes?! One lucky winner has a new sewing machine (thanks to Valley West Sewing). Nine winners have a great new sewing chair. One winner has a new Tutto rolling cart. And 45 lucky quilters won a $25.00 gift certificate to use at one of the shops. All of the winners have been notified. If you want to see if any of your friends won a prize, stop by the shop and check out the list of winners—or visit the Twin Cities Shop Hop facebook page. We've set the dates for next year's hop as April 28 – 30, 2016. Mark your calendar so you won't miss out!

So what's next? Susan and Nancy will be heading to Quilt Market later this week. It’s right here in Minneapolis so we’re looking forward to lots of out-of-town visitors. We'll be checking out all the fun new fabric offerings for fall and keeping an eye out for some great new tools and books.

We’re also getting ready for the Row by Row Experience. We’re busy working on a design for our row pattern.  This year's theme is water. This fun shop hop includes shops in all 50 states and Canada too! It starts on June 21 and runs through September 8. Include some quilt shop stops if you’re doing any summer traveling. Go to for all the details.

We're busy making plans for the Minnesota Quilter's Show. This year's event will be held in Duluth, from June 11 – 13. Duluth is such a great location, we always enjoy our visit there. We've planned a great selection of quilts to display in our booth. Be sure to stop by and visit with us while you're at the show.

And, there's still more quilting fun coming along! Mark your calendar for Quilt Minnesota taking place July 31 – August 16, 2015. We'll have buses touring the metro section during the first two weekends of the hop. The buses are starting to fill so give us a call soon if you'd like to reserve a ticket.

Aren't we quilters lucky to have so many fun ways to enjoy what we love to do?

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!
