Dear Customers and Friends,

Are you looking for some great quilt inspiration? Check out our Facebook page. We’ve posted some fun quilt shows recently. One show is a collection of quilts that Nathan presented at the Monticello quilt guild meeting in November. Talk about a gorgeous collection of quilts! We just posted an album of quilts from our Ruler Roundup Staff Challenge that was on display in the shop in January. It’s also been fun watching Susan’s progress on her Fancy Forest baby quilt—she’s finished it now and it will be on display at the shop. Check in with us on Facebook and leave us a comment on your favorite quilts!

We have some great classes coming up soon. If you enjoy the portability of handwork, Cheri’s Handquilting class is a great opportunity to learn tips and tricks from an experienced hand quilter. Cheri will help new hand quilters get off to a great start. If you have taken this class previously and need more practice, this is you opportunity! Cheri will provide refresher training and help you troubleshoot any problem areas. Class meets on three Tuesdays: Feb. 23, March 1 & 8, 6:30–8:30. Another fun class coming up if you enjoy handwork is Lucy Boston Remembered with Annemarie. You’ll enjoy learning English Paper Piecing as you play with fabric and stitch these fun honeycomb blocks. This 2 session class meets Tuesday, March 8 & 15, 6:30–8:30.

Join us March 18 & 19 in New Ulm at the Prairie Piecemakers Quilt Show.  Susan and Nancy are the special guests this year. They'll be speaking on Friday March 18 at 2:00 PM and Saturday March 19 at 10:00 AM.  Look forward to seeing loads of quilts  - some of our Glad Creations designs, some of Gladys' applique quilts and some quilts from our private collections.

Coupon book holdersFebruary 22–27 will be a great time for you to shop for Christmas prints! We still have a nice selection of Christmas prints to choose from.

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!
