Glad Creations Inc., Email Update

This newsletter is mailed every other Monday.

February 21, 2011

Dear Customers and Friends,

We're having a SNOW DAY today!  We won't be opening the shop but I'll be there making phone calls to reschedule Monday night classes.  If you're scheduled to come to class tonight and think I might have a hard time reaching you today, give me a call at the shop for re-scheduling details.

The Spring 2011 Class Schedule is currently in the works and will be mailed out around March 4. Watch for it is the mail, or look for it on the website. The first day to sign up for classes is Thursday, March 17. Be sure to get your registrations in early as some classes fill quickly!

Our new website is now live!
Be sure to take a look to see the new layout and all the features we've added, including online shopping for patterns, kits and favorite tools. We'll continue to add some fun new features so check back from time to time.

Thinking about doing a Mystery by Mail?  We'll be mailing out information for Mystery by Mail 47 during the first week of March.  Email us if you want to be sure you're on the list to receive swatches.  If you did one of the last two Mysteries, you should be on the list to receive this mailing.  We'll also be posting photos of the Mystery fabrics on the web site too.

Coupon book holders, be sure to stop in to use your Christmas Close-out coupon between February 21-26 to receive 30% off specially tagged Christmas fabrics from the 2010 season. If you don't have a coupon book yet, they can still be purchased for $10 each. These books are packed with monthly coupons for special discounts and offers throughout the year.

It's back! The Fat Quarter Frenzy will take place April 1 & 2, 2011 from  9:30 – 5:00. Buy at least 25 fat quarters from our great selection of pre-rolled fat quarters and pay only $1.25 each!  Any additional fat quarters purchase at the same time will also be only $1.25 each.  Invite your friends – we'll have thousands of pre-rolled fat quarters to choose from.

The 14th Annual Quilt Shop 'til You Drop, the annual Twin Cities quilt shop tour is coming up on April 28 – 30, 2011.  Be sure to mark your calendar and start planning your trip! Watch for details about demos at Glads.

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
