Dear Customers and Friends,

The Twin Cities Shop Hop was a great success. We had such fun visiting with everyone who stopped by our shop. The Twin Cities shop owners will be getting together Tuesday evening for our annual shop hop dinner. The highlight of the evening is always drawing names of the prize winners. Did you know we’ll be giving away 44 prizes?! Two lucky winners will have a new sewing machine (thanks to Valley West Sewing & Johnstons Vac & Sew of Richfield ). Seven winners will have a great new sewing chair. And 35 lucky quilters won a $25.00 gift certificate to use at one of the shops. All of the winners should be notified soon. If you want to see if any of your friends won a prize, stop by the shop later this week and check out the list of winners.

So what's next? Susan and Nancy will be heading to Quilt Market next week. This year we’ll be going to St. Louis. We'll be checking out all the fun new fabric offerings for fall and keeping an eye out for some great new tools and books.

We’re also getting ready for the Row by Row Experience. Our design is ready and on display at the shop. This year's theme is On the Go. This fun shop hop includes shops in all 50 states and Canada too! It starts on June 21 and runs through September 5. Include some quilt shop stops if you’re doing any summer traveling. Go to for all the details.

Are you planning on a trip to the Minnesota Quilters Show in Duluth? The dates are June 8–10, 2017. It’s always a fun show with lots of beautiful quilts to enjoy and vendors to visit.

And, there's still more quilting fun coming along! Mark your calendar for Quilt Minnesota taking place July 28–August 13, 2017. We'll have buses touring the metro section during the first weekend of the hop. The buses are starting to fill so give us a call soon if you'd like to reserve a ticket.

Aren't we quilters lucky to have so many fun ways to enjoy what we love to do?

Coupon book holders: Just a reminder that our Thread Special coupon is coming up May 11–13.

New this year—our Powderhorn neighborhood is having a Best of Powderhorn contest. We love being part of the Powderhorn community. Do you love us! Please vote for us in the first annual Best of Powderhorn contest. You can cast unlimited votes through June 30.

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!

Nancy, Susan & Emily
