Dear Customers and Friends,

We've been having a great time greeting folks touring the state on the Quilt Minnesota shop hop. If you haven't started yet, there's still plenty of time. The statewide shop hop started July 29 and runs through August 14. Go to for all the details.

The Row by Row Experience is going strong. Congratulations to Roxana Heck for completing her quilt and bringing it into Glad Creations. Her rows are from Quilt Cove, Glad Creations, Twin Cities Quilting, Bear Patch, Heart Blossoms, Knot So Perfect, Busy Bobbin and Sew Little Time. Great job!. There are still plenty of participating shops that haven’t had a winner yet. Here’s how to win: collect row patterns from 8 (or more) shops, make them into a quilt and be the first one to bring in your finished quilt to a participating shop that has not yet had a winner. Your finished quilt should be quilted, bound and labeled.

The Fall Class Schedule has gone out in the mail to those of you who are receiving paper mailings. You can also download a pdf from our website or check out the individual class listings in the class section of our website. The first day to sign up for classes is Thursday, August 11. One small correction to our class brochure that went out in the mail: Cheri’s Handquilting class meets on Tuesday nights (not Monday nights). The dates in the brochure are correct: October 25, November 1 and November 22.

We'll be offering a new session of Scrap Tamers starting in September. Registration sheets with all the details will be available in the shop August 6. You can get a peek at the kits we’ll be offering for the Scrap Tamer Mystery quilt at that time as well. We’ll also be posting all of the info on our website later this week. The first day to register for Scrap Tamers is Saturday, August 20. You can register by phone or in person.

Coupon book holders: Stop in next week, August 8–10 to use your coupon for rotary cutters, blades, mats and rulers. Who doesn’t need a new rotary cutter blade!

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

There's lots of quilting fun coming along. We hope to see you soon!
