Dear Customers and Friends,

Spring is here and the Twin Cities Shop 'til You Drop quilt shop hop is just around the corner on May 4–6, 2017. We have lots of fun plans, including demos at every shop and great door prizes. Each shop you visit will have a little gift for you too, a TC Treat (that’s a 10” x 12” cut of a solid color fabric). Also, each shop will be handing out an original pillow pattern. More about the hop: Everyone who visits all 7 shops will be entered into a drawing for some great prizes. Two lucky winners will receive a sewing machine. Either a Janome Magnolia donated by Valley West Sewing or a Necchi FA16 donated by Johnston’s Vac & Sew of Richfield. We'll be drawing names for 7 winners of an Arrow sewing chair. That's not all...each shop will be putting 5 - $25.00 gift certificates into the drawing. That's a total of 35 gift certificates. Lots of chances to win! All the details are available on our website. Stop by and pick up your map so you can start planning your hop! You'll also find details about this year's new bus tours!

Coming soon - Susan's Pineapple class, scheduled for Saturday, April 1, still has a few openings! Class hours are 10:00 - 4:00.  Susan will be teaching a technique using Creative Grids Pineapple Trim Tool - a great tool for piecing accurate pineapple blocks. Check out the class description on our website and see some wonderful pineapple quilts!

Be sure to mark your calendars for the fun summer quilting events coming up. The Minnesota Quilters’ annual show takes place in Duluth this year. The dates are June 8–10. As always, there will be beautiful quilts to enjoy and some fun shopping in the vendors area.

The Row by Row Experience is scheduled for June 21–September 5. Travel around the U.S. and Canada collecting patterns that each shop has designed. Check out the Row by Row website for all the details. Watch the Row by Row Facebook page. Shops will be posting their rows as they have the designs ready. We’re busy at work on ours!

Have you started planning for Quilt Minnesota yet? The Quilt Minnesota hop runs July 28–August 13 this year. Check out the Quilt Minnesota website to see the 2017 fabric design and find out what’s happening in each section. Join our Twin Cities bus tour to visit the 7 Metro shops in one day. We’re finalizing the details so expect more info to be coming along soon.

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

So much quilting fun coming along!
