Dear Customers and Friends,

We had a wonderful time at the Minnesota Quilters' annual show in Duluth last week. It was great fun to see so many friends. And, the quilts on display were fabulous! We had a demo in our booth of one of our favorite template sets — the Scrap Crazy 6" Template set. If you missed it, stop by the shop to check out the fun samples we’ve made.

The quilting fun continues! Now that the Minnesota Quilters' show is done, we're getting ready for the Row by Row Experience. It's a new kind of shop hop that 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 some Canadian provinces. It's a simple idea without a lot of rules. Every participating shop designs a row for a quilt. This year’s theme is water. Collect the free patterns by visiting the shops during the summer—June 21 – Sept 8, 2015. There are no passports to have stamped. All you have to do is ask for the free pattern. Create a quilt using at least 8 different rows. Be the first to bring your finished (quilted, bound, and labeled) quilt to 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 www.rowbyrowexperience for all the details and to find out what shops are participating. Check out our website to see a picture of our row. We’re calling it Adrift.

Mark your July calendar for our Summer Sale on July 23–25. All regularly priced fabric will be 20% off. This includes fat quarters and bundles but not kits. We'll also be refreshing our clearance area with new additions to our 50% off fabric and more books will be added to our 30% off area.

And of course, the dates for Quilt Minnesota are July 31–August 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 sections and a grand prize for visiting all of the participating shops. Details are 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 in two days for only $39.99! Buses are scheduled to run the first two weekends of the hop—choose July 31 & August 1 or August 7 & 8.

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!
