Dear Customers and Friends,

The 14th Annual Twin Cities Shop Hop was loads of fun. All the shop owners will be getting together tonight to draw winners for the prizes! 

Susan and Nancy will be heading off to Quilt Market soon and are looking forward to finding lots of fun new ideas and inspiration.
The next big quilting event to look forward to is the Minnesota Quilters Show which take place at the RiverCentre in St Paul this year from June 16-18.  Visit for event information. Be sure to stop by our booth and say Hi!

Our newest Glad Creations pattern, Birds in the Air, is now available on the website and in the shop. We have some kits available for this great design as well.

Coupon book holders, be sure to stop in from May 5-8 to redeem your Stock up on Thread coupon. Buy three spools and get a 4th one free (lesser value is free).

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
