Dear Customers and Friends,

Who's ready for a shop hop?! Join us this week for the 19th Annual Twin Cities Shop 'til You Drop quilt shop hop. Dates and times: Thursday April 28, 9:00–9:00; Friday April 29, 9:00–9:00; Saturday April 30, 9:00–5:00. You can stop by any of the participating shops to pick up a copy of the map. Visit all 9 shops to qualify for some great prizes. Nine lucky winners will receive an Arrow Sewing Chair (see them on display in all the shops) and one lucky winner will receive a tutto sewing cart. And, there's more…each shop is putting 5 - $25.00 gift certificates into the drawing. That's a total of 45 - $25.00 gift certificates. Pick up a fun pillow pattern at each shop you visit.

You’ve probably read about the pillowcase drive we’re having for this year’s shop hop. The pillowcases are starting to roll in. We’ll have a great contribution to make to Case for Smiles—thanks to all of you who have been sewing up pillowcases. We also want to thank Valley West Sewing for donating a sewing machine for our prize drawing.

We've planned a Schoolhouse Hop again this year. Each shop will be demonstrating a favorite quilting tool. Watch the demo and you'll receive a coupon that you can use in June 2016 for $5.00 off your $25.00 purchase of regular priced fabric. Here's how the hop works. Begin at any participating shop. You'll receive a passport to get stamped at each shop you visit. We'll also have a TC Treat for you – that's a 10 x 12 piece of a "solid" fabric. Each shop has their own color (our color is green this year). We also have each designed a pillow pattern that we’ll be sharing with you. Next, watch the demo and pick up a coupon that you can use during the month of June. When you visit your 9th shop, turn in your passport to enter the prize drawing for all the fun goodies mentioned above.

We're mostly thinking Shop Hop this week, but here are a couple of non-hop reminders. Check out the new fabric we’ve received during the last couple of weeks. We’re always excited when we get our big shipment of Hoffman batiks. They’re gorgeous! Not only that but the Spring 2016 Kaffe Fassett collective line from Rowan fabric arrived this week. Those of you who have been asking about the “Fungi” print will want to know that we have it available in several colors!

Coupon book holders: our Thread Special coupon is coming up May 5–7. 

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”!
