We’re looking forward to a fun and busy fall. Our fall 2016 class schedule is available at the shop and on our website. What a great way to learn and enjoy the company of other quilters! Signup has started, but there are still openings in some of the classes. The classes starting in September are: Pat’s Thursday Regulars, Color Basics, Lucky Stars, Beginning Rotary Star Sampler, Beginning Quiltmaking, Appliqué and Machine Quilting. Wow! Stop in to see our class samples and get some help choosing the right class for you.

Our 2016-2017 Scrap Tamers Club will be starting in September. We have information about it in the class schedule and on the website. Signup day was wild as always. Quilters were huddled under our awning during that rainy Saturday morning, waiting for the shop to open to get their choice of sessions. The 1st two sessions are full, but there are still a few openings in the 1:15 session.

Quilt Minnesota is now over. It was a fun time with lots of visitors. If you are looking for the Quilt Minnesota fabric, we still have several of the pieces. Sorry—no mosquitoes! The Row by Row Experience is still going on and runs through September 6. If you haven’t picked up the pattern for our row yet, stop in by September 6 to receive the free pattern or purchase a kit. After that date, the patterns and kits will not be available again until November 1.

We’ve also planned some fun 40th anniversary celebration events. You won’t want to miss them. The first event will be a display of Glad’s quilts. It will run from September 2–10. We will fill the classrooms with a fun selection of her quilts, many of which were prize winners. You can also participate in our memory quilt by picking up a signature square. Turn it in by Oct. 1 and it will become part of our memory quilt to be displayed in January at our Ruby Show. You can find all the information about this event and other anniversary events in the Fall 2016 Class Schedule. Pick one up at the shop or check it out online.

We talked about Moda’s quilt-a-long “neighborhood” in the last E-mail. We’re starting to work on our sample. As soon as all the details are worked out, we’ll let you know. Let us know if you might be interested in building your own neighborhood with us.

Coupon book holders: Don’t forget the Hit the Books coupon in September—15% off any regular priced book during the month.

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
