Dear Customers and Friends,

The Twin Cities Shop Hop was a great success. We had such fun visiting with everyone who stopped by our shop. The Twin Cities shopowners got together Tuesday evening for our annual shop hop dinner and the highlight of the evening was drawing names of the prize winners. Did you know we gave away 56 prizes?! One lucky winner has a new sewing machine (thanks to Valley West Sewing). Nine winners have a great new sewing chair. One winner has a new Tutto rolling cart. And 45 lucky quilters won a $25.00 gift certificate to use at one of the shops. All of the winners should be notified by now. If you want to see if any of your friends won a prize, stop by the shop and check out the list of winners—or visit the Twin Cities Shop Hop facebook page.

So what's next? Susan and Nancy will be heading to Quilt Market next week in Salt Lake City. We'll be checking out all the fun new fabric offerings for fall and keeping an eye out for some great new tools and books. We’re also getting ready for the Row by Row Experience. We’re busy working on a design for our row pattern. This year's theme is “Home Sweet Home”. This fun shop hop includes shops in all 50 states and Canada too! It starts on June 21 and runs through September 6. Include some quilt shop stops if you’re doing any summer traveling. Go to for all the details.

Are you planning on a trip to the Minnesota Quilters Show in St. Cloud? The dates are June 9–11, 2016. It’s always a fun show. While you’re there, check out the special exhibits. Our staff challenge from last year, “Stripes!” will be hanging. It will be fun to see this fun, bright show together again.

And, there's still more quilting fun coming along! Mark your calendar for Quilt Minnesota taking place July 29–August 14, 2016. We'll have buses touring the metro section during the first weekend of the hop. The buses are starting to fill so give us a call soon if you'd like to reserve a ticket. Aren't we quilters lucky to have so many fun ways to enjoy what we love to do?

Coupon book holders: Stop in the shop May 26–28, 2016 to receive a free patriotic fat quarter from our special selection.

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!
