Dear Customers and Friends,

Lots of great new products have come in from Susan & Nancy's Quilt Market orders. Be sure to take a look at everything listed below.

If you're getting excited about the upcoming
Quilt Minnesota statewide shop hop, we have now added information about the bus tours to our website. Be sure to take a look and start making your plans!. There are 2 different bus options for the metro area sections. Information is located on our events page.

The Minnesota Quilter's Show is coming up on June 16-18 at the Rivercentre in St. Paul.  We’ll be in booth 310-312 so be sure to stop by and say "hi!".  We’ll have lots fun quilts on display.  We hope to be able to hang Glad’s newest quilt “Roseville Album” if Carol gets it quilted in time.  Susan will be demonstrating some of our favorite rotary cutting tools. Take a few minutes to read our latest blog post.

Coupon  book holders - stop in later this week to use your "Backing Coupon".  Purchase at least 6 yards of the same fabric and receive 10% off - June 2 - 4.

We have added a new kit to the online store on our website for our great Birds in the Air pattern done in Kaffe Fassett prints. So pretty, be sure to check it out!

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
