Dear Customers and Friends,

Who's ready for a shop hop?! Join us May 4–6 for the 20th Annual Twin Cities Shop 'til You Drop quilt shop hop. Dates and times: Thursday, May 4, 9:00–9:00; Friday, May 5, 9:00–9:00; Saturday, May 6, 9:00–5:00. You can download a copy of the map on our website or stop by any of the participating shops to pick up a copy.

Visit all 7 shops to qualify for some great prizes. We want to thank Valley West Sewing and Johnston’s Vac & Sew of Richfield for donating sewing machines for our prize drawing. Also, seven lucky winners will receive an Arrow Sewing Chair (see them on display in all the shops). And, there's more…each shop is putting 5 - $25.00 gift certificates into the drawing. That's a total of 35 - $25.00 gift certificates.

We've planned a Schoolhouse Hop again this year. Each shop will be demonstrating a favorite quilting tool. Watch the demo and you'll receive a coupon that you can use in June 2017 for $5.00 off your $25.00 purchase of regular priced fabric.

Here's how the hop works. Begin at any participating shop. You'll receive a passport to get stamped at each shop you visit. 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. Next, watch the demo and pick up your come-back coupon to use during the month of June. When you visit your 7th shop, turn in your passport to enter the prize drawing for all the fun goodies mentioned above.

We're mostly thinking Shop Hop this week, but here are a couple of non-hop reminders: Check out the new fabric we’ve received during the last couple of weeks. We’re always excited when we get our big shipment of Hoffman batiks. They’re gorgeous! Not only that but the Spring 2017 Kaffe Fassett collective line from Rowan fabric arrived last week.

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!
