Dear Customers and Friends,

Happy Leap Year Day! Fun to have an extra day for quilting. We've been busy at work on our Spring 2016 class schedule. It will soon be at the printers and will go out in the mail around March 7. The first day to sign up for spring classes is Thursday, March 17. If you don't get our paper mailing, the schedule will also be up on our website in early March.

There are still some openings in classes coming up soon. Lucy Boston Remembered meets on March 8 and March 15. This would be a fun way to learn English Paper Piecing with help from Annemarie. Come in and see her sample. There are also openings in the 1st session of Not a Mystery. It meets on March 5 and 6 and is a replacement for our former Mystery Weekend. I'm sure many of you have a Glad Creations quilt started, a kit for one of our quilts that you'd like some help with, or one of our Glad Creations patterns you've always wanted to make. Come sew with us, see what others are working on, and get some help from Nancy and Susan.

Join us March 18 and 19 in New Ulm at the Prairie Piecemakers Quilt Show. Nancy and Susan are the special guests this year. They will be speaking on Friday, March 18 at 2:00 and Saturday, March 19 at 10:00 am. They will be showing lots of quilts and telling the story of Glad Creations.

We're looking forward to lots of fun events in the Spring. Our 9 local shops are making plans for the Twin Cities Shop Hop in April. Watch for more information coming soon. 

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!
