Dear Customers and Friends,

Greetings! The Twin Cities Shop 'til You Drop quilt shop hop is almost here! The dates are April 28–30, 2016. We have lots of fun plans, including demos at every shop and great door prizes (watch the demos as you hop and receive a coupon from each shop to use in June 2015 for $5.00 off your $25.00 fabric purchase). Each shop you visit will have a little gift for you too, a TC Treat (that’s a 10" x 12" cut of a solid color fabric). We’ve also each designed a fun pillow pattern that you can pick up as you hop. More about the hop: Everyone who visits all 9 shops will be entered into a drawing for some great prizes. We'll also be drawing names for 9 winners of an Arrow sewing chair. One lucky winner will receive 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!

Have you heard about our pillowcase drive for A Case for Smiles? Stop in anytime on or before April 30 with your pillowcase donations and enter your name in a drawing for a Janome sewing machine donated by Valley West Sewing. You’ll get one entry for each pillowcase you contribute. Stop in and pick up a pillowcase pattern from us or visit You’ll find a pillowcase pattern and other details under their “get involved” tab.

Just a note about Quilt Minnesota—We have the bus schedule ready for our Metro Section shops. We’ll be running buses the first weekend of the hop—July 29 & 30. This 2-day bus trip will take you to our 10 metro shops. We’ve planned drop off and pick up locations in Bloomington and Coon Rapids. You’ll meet the bus at the same location both days. We have a fun gift for all of you bus riders—a tin of Aurifil threads to coordinate with the Quilt Minnesota fabric line. Give us a call to reserve your place on the bus!

Coupon book holders: Stop in April 21–23 for a free fat quarter from our selection of floral prints! 

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

See you soon. We hope you’ll all be out “hopping”!
