Dear Customers and Friends,

Who’s starting a new project? Mid-winter is a great time to settle in with a new sewing project or to get back to a project already in process. We’ve been busy here at the shop working on small quilt samples using the Sunday Best fabric line. That’s the new line by Kim Diehl for Henry Glass Fabrics. Once again, Kim has designed a group of fun miniature quilts to make using her new fabrics. We have a couple of the tops pieced and ready to quilt. Next we’ll be cutting kits. The first two kits will be available mid-February. Here’s a picture (at left) of the one Susan just finished, Pocket Change. 

As you’ll see below, the second group of Deco State Flower fabrics has arrived from In the Beginning Fabrics. We’ll be cutting bundles for everyone who’s participating in the America’s Garden block-of-the-month. We expect to have them ready by February 15. If you haven’t heard about this project, In the Beginning Fabrics is releasing 10 state flower prints each month for 5 months. You can sign up to receive fabrics each month to make the America’s Garden Quilt or collect the Deco State Flower prints to plan your own project.

It’s not too early to start making plans for the Minnesota Quilters annual show, June 9–11. Stop by the shop to pick up a copy of the show book. It lists all of the classes and events that will be going on. Registration is open for members and non-members. This year the show is in St Cloud, always a favorite location.

Coupon book holders: stop in with your coupon book between February 11–13 for a free fat quarter of a valentine print.

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!
