Dear Customers and Friends,

Are you ready for the Row by Row Experience? We’re ready! Tomorrow, June 21, is the first day. Here’s how it works—every participating shop designs a row for a quilt. This year’s theme is “home sweet home”. Collect the free patterns by visiting the shops during the summer from June 21 – Sept 6, 2016. There are no passports to have stamped. All you have to do is ask for the free pattern. Create a quilt using at least 8 different rows. Be the first to bring your finished (quilted, bound, and labeled) quilt to a participating shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters. Use that shop's row in your quilt and win a bonus prize! Visit www.rowbyrowexperience for all the details and to find out what shops are participating. Here’s our row designed by Emily Dyer (Susan’s daughter). We’re calling it “Home Tweet Home”.

Susan and Nancy have a couple of trunk shows coming up. On Sunday, June 26 at 2:00 we’ll be speaking at the American Swedish Institute as part of the Minnesota Quilters summer exhibit. Click here for details! On Tuesday, June 28 we’ll be visiting the Lakeshore Quilters at Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church in Shoreview, MN. We’ll be showing around 30 quilts at each of these trunk shows—quilts from our private collections, some of Glad’s quilts, and a variety of quilts from our pattern line. 

Mark your July calendar for our Summer Sale on July 7–9, 2016. All regularly priced fabric will be 20% off. This includes fat quarters and bundles, but not kits. We'll also be refreshing our clearance area with new additions to our 50% off fabric, and more books will be added to our 30% off area.

And of course, the dates for Quilt Minnesota are July 29–August 14, 2016. Pick up your passport at the first shop that you visit. Travel the state and get your passport stamped. There are fun prizes for completing sections and a grand prize for visiting all of the participating shops. Details are at We'll have some fun things happening in our section—each shop will have a charm for you with your $10.00 purchase. When you complete the Metro section, you’ll be entered into a drawing for some great prizes. Would you like to leave the driving to us? Give us a call to sign up for our Metro bus tour and visit all 10 shops in our section in two days for only $39.95! We’ll have buses leaving from 3 locations of the first weekend of the hop—July 29 & 30. The seats are filling so give us a call soon to get yours. We have a fun prize for bus riders in our section—a tin filled with 6 small spools of Aurifil thread to match the Quilt Minnesota fabric.

Shop notes:
  • Susan’s Hunter’s Star class still has openings. It will be held Saturday, June 25 from 10:00 - 4:00. If you’ve thought about taking this class, this is a great opportunity.
  • Coupon book holders: Remember to come in during the month of July to use your Wild Card coupon.
  • Our annual inventory takes place on Wednesday, July 27 this year. We’ll all be here but it’s not a great day for shopping. Of course, if you come to the door needing a spool of thread or a bit of fabric, we’ll open the door for you.
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!
