Dear Customers and Friends,

We're busy at the shop getting packed up for the Minnesota Quilters show at the St Paul Rivercentre from June 16-18.  Look for us in booth 310-12.  Throughout the show, Susan will be demonstrating some of our favorite rotary cutting tools from Deb Tucker.  We'll have lots of fun quilts on display in our booth—including Glad's latest appliqué quilt.  She's been having great fun working with appliqué patterns from Kim McLean and using Kaffe Fassett fabrics.  For those of you who don't know, Glad is Nancy & Susan's mother.  She's 92 years old and still doing beautiful hand appliqué.  She'll be checking out the show on Thursday—maybe you'll see her there.

Special gift—we'll be giving away sunny yellow Glad Creations
tote bags with a $25.00 purchase at the Minnesota Quilters show or in the shop. You can read about the details on our blog.

Our first shipment of Quilt Minnesota fabric has arrived in the shop! We can't sell it yet, but we'll be putting together a display of the fabrics so you can start making plans. Quilt Minnesota starts July 29 (that's the first day we can sell the fabric) and runs through August 14.
