Dear Customers and Friends,

The new year is off to a great start. We’ve been having fun during the last few days visiting with everyone who has been in to see our staff challenge quilt show, Ruler Roundup! This year we set ourselves with this challenge—pick a specialty ruler and make a quilt. Some of us selected a project to challenge our skills. Others tried to see how many different rulers they could use in one quilt. As you will see when you visit the show, we had fun with fabric and ended up with some beautiful quilts! If you haven’t been in to see it yet, the show will be on display through Saturday, January 9.

Susan and Nancy will be hosting a demo day on January 9 to talk about some of the different rulers that were used for quilts in the show. Come and go as you please between 10:00–12:00 and 1:00–3:00.

We’ve had lots of folks stopping in to pick up their 2016 Glad Creations Coupon Book. They are free with your in-store purchase through January 16. After that date, they’ll be available to purchase for $10.00. The coupon book includes coupons (for every month of the year) for discounts on merchandise, or for free fat quarters. The first coupon of the year is for a free Glad Creations pattern, January 24–30. All you have to do is stop in with your coupon book and pick out your favorite pattern.

Many of our winter classes will be starting soon. Annemarie’s Beginning Rotary Star Sampler class, starting Tuesday, Feb. 2, 6:00 - 8:30, has a couple of spaces left. Annemarie covers some great techniques to get you started with machine piecing. If you’ve already done some machine piecing, this class is a chance to refine your piecing skills and learn some new tricks. Are you looking for a new project to work on this winter? Susan will be teaching the Hunter’s Star class on January 23, 10:00–4:00. She will also be teaching the long-time favorite Pineapple class on January 30, 10:00–4:00. 

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

There's lots of quilting fun coming along. We hope to see you soon!
