Dear Customers and Friends,

 The 14th annual Quilt Shop 'til You Drop, the annual Twin Cities quilt shop tour is coming up on April 28 – 30, 2011. You'll want to be sure to check out the great demos we have scheduled. We’ll also be having a trunk show of little quilts from Quilts Remembered designed by Annemarie Yohnk. She’ll be sharing her techniques during some of the demos.  We have shop hop maps available in the shop now to plan your trip.

The next session of our
Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler club is just around the corner on April 18 and 19. In session 8 we'll be showing you tips for Y-seams and Eight Pointed Stars. Be sure to sign up if you’re participating in this club.

Make sure to take a look at our blog to see the
slide show of the show & tell from Mystery Weekend 47. Participants brought some amazing quilts to share.

Everyone had a great time shopping our Fat Quarter Frenzy this past weekend!  We had thousands of fat quarters rolled and ready to go Friday morning.  Did you miss it?  We're tidying up the bins this morning and are going to continue to offer the special price through Wednesday of this week.  Purchase at least 25 fat quarters from our pre-rolled selection and pay only $1.25 each.  There's still a great selection available! 

Our newest Glad Creations pattern, Wishing Star, has come back from the printer and is now available. Patterns and kits will be posted on the web site later this week.

Coupon book holders,
don't forget to come in to use your Think Mother's Day Coupon. Use this coupon from April 18-20 to receive 10% off packaged patterns for placemats, napkins, potholders and aprons.

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
