Dear Customers and Friends,

We’re ready for spring here at Glad Creations! Our first day for Spring class registrations is this Thursday, March 17. We have loads of fun classes and events coming up. The class schedule has gone out in the mail for those of you receiving paper mailings. You can also go to our website and download a pdf version of the spring schedule or look at the individual class listings.

More signs of spring...the Twin Cities Shop 'til You Drop is just around the corner on April 28-30, 2016. We have lots of fun plans, including demos at every shop, and door prizes. We'll also have a drawing for everyone who completes the shop hop, with some great prizes. We'll be drawing names for 9 winners of an Arrow sewing chair. One lucky quilter will win a Tutto sewing machine cart. That's not all...each shop will be putting 5 - $25.00 gift certificates into the drawing. That's a total of 45 gift certificates. Lots of chances to win! All the details are available on our website. Stop by and pick up your map so you can start planning your hop!

New for this year’s hop—we’re collecting pillowcases for Case for Smiles. Stop by the shop and pick up a free pillowcase pattern or visit for pillowcase directions and some guidelings of fabric selection and such. If you already have a pillowcase pattern that you like to use, that’s fine too. The pillowcases will go to children, so keep that in mind with your fabric selections. Now, here’s the fun part: for each pillowcase that you bring into one of the participating shops either prior to or during the shop hop, you’ll be entered into a drawing for a Janome sewing machine donated by Valley West Sewing.

Coupon book holders: stop by March 17–19 for a discount on green fabric. Later in the month you can stock up on supplies for your sewing machine from March 24–26. Check out your coupon book for all the details.

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!
