Dear Customers and Friends,

We’ve been having fun working on samples for Kim Diehl’s Simple Whatnots Club #3. These fun little quilts use her Gathering Basket fabric line that came in earlier this summer. We have the first sample, Scarlet Stars, hanging in the shop with kits available. Stop by and check it out! 

There are some great classes coming along this fall. Susan’s Strip Stars class is just around the corner. Make this fun table runner from Heather Muldur’s latest book: Angles with Ease 2. This class meets Saturday, October 3 from 10:00–4:00. 

Basic Domestic Machine Quilting with Janet Moser will be held Saturday, October 3 from 10:30–4:00. Learn the basics of machine quilting on a simple pieced project. This class is for students who have little or no experience with machine quilting or for those of you who would like to improve your machine quilting skills.

Have you taken Cheri’s Color Basics class and want to keep exploring color and fabric selection? Join Cheri for Color Club beginning Monday, Sept. 28 from 6:30–8:30. (That’s tonight!)

If you’ve enjoyed seeing Cheri’s fun Lone Star quilts hanging around the shop, how about taking the class this fall. She has some great tips to share in her upcoming class—there are still a couple of spaces available. The class is held on two Saturdays, October 10 & 31.

For those who have already taken Carole’s basic Featherweight class and would like to dig into the inner workings of your Singer Featherweight 221 machine, join Carole for Featherweight: Beyond the Basics on Saturday, October 24 from 10:00–2:00.

Coupon book holders: You’ll find two October coupons in your book. On October 1–3 we’ll have a coupon special on needles—hand or machine. Later in the month, from October 12–17, you’ll find a coupon good for a 25% discount on Christmas fabric.

If you’re registered for one of our Mystery Weekend #56 sessions, you should see your supply list in the mail around October 8. We’ll also be offering the Mystery #56 quilt as a by mail option. We’ll be mailing out information and swatches to those of you who have expressed an interest in Mystery by Mail around the third week of October 21.

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!
