Dear Customers and Friends,

We've completed our last Scrap Tamers session for this year. What a fun group! We had a record number of folks completing their Scrap Tamers Mystery quilt and they are really fun! Cheri & Nathan were in charge of the final session and took pictures of all of the finished quilts. We'll be posting them on our blog— be sure to check it out. The name of this quilt is Nine Stars Rising. We’ll have a pattern available in the fall. We'll have a new Scrap Tamers club starting in September. The first day to sign up is Saturday, August 22, 2015. More details will be coming along in August.

Is everyone ready for a summer of quilting fun?! We sure are! The next not to be missed event is the Minnesota Quilters show. This year's show will be held at the DECC in Duluth. Classes start on June 10. There's a sneak peek of the show and vendor's mall on the evening of June 10, then the show is open June 11 – 13. Enjoy 3 days of looking at quilts, shopping the vendor mall and having fun with other quilters. We hope you'll stop by our booth to say hi! Visit the show web site for all the details at

Next up is a new kind of shop hop. The Row by Row Experience started a couple years ago in New York State and has spread across the country. This year it will be happening in all 50 states plus several Canadian Provinces. We’ve heard that there are 2600 shops participating. How’s that for a big shop hop! It's a simple idea without a lot of rules. Every participating shop designs a row for a quilt with some size specifications. This year’s theme for the rows is water. Collect the free patterns by visiting the shops during the summer from June 21 – September 8, 2015. Create a quilt using at least 8 different rows and be the first to bring it into a participating shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters. Use that shop's row in your quilt and win a bonus prize! Visit for all the details and to find out what shops are participating. Check out the Minnesota Row by Row facebook page to see what's happening in Minnesota shops.

And of course, the dates for Quilt Minnesota are July 31 – 16, 2015. Pick up your passport at the first shop that you visit. Travel the state and get your passport stamped. There are fun prizes for completing different sections and a grand prize drawing for those visiting all of the participating shops. Details at We'll have some fun things happening in our section! When you complete the Metro Section we'll have a nice gift for you—a 17 inch project bag with a keepsake Metro Section logo on it. Would you like to leave the driving to us? Give us a call to sign up for our Metro bus tour and visit all 10 shops in our section on this two day tour for only $39.99! You be picked up and dropped off at the same location each day. We'll have buses touring the Metro section Friday & Saturday, July 31 & August 1 and Friday & Saturday, August 7 & 8.

We're nearing the end of our Spring class schedule. We still have Cheri’s Lone Star class coming up Saturday, May 30 & June 6 from 10:00–1:00.
