Dear Customers and Friends,
We've completed our last Scrap Tamers session for this year. What a fun group! We had so many folks completing their Scrap Tamers Mystery quilt and they are really fun! Cheri & Nathan were in charge of the final session and took pictures of all of the finished quilts. The name of this quilt is Windy Weather.
Susan and Nancy are just back from Quilt Market in St. Louis. We saw loads of fun fabric and beautiful quilts! Watch for some great new products coming along.
Is everyone ready for a summer of quilting fun?! We sure are! The next not to be missed event is the Minnesota Quilters show. This year's show will be held in Duluth. Classes start on June 7. There's a sneak peek of the show and vendor's mall on the evening of June 7, then the show is open June 8-10. Enjoy 3 days of looking at quilts, shopping the vendor mall and having fun with other quilters. Visit the show web site for all the details at www.mnquilt.org.
Next up is a new kind of shop hop. The Row by Row Experience started a few years ago in New York State and has spread across the country. This year it will be happening in all 50 states plus several Canadian Provinces. There are 2800 shops participating! How’s that for a big shop hop! It's a simple idea without a lot of rules. Every participating shop designs a row for a quilt with some size specifications. This year’s theme for the rows is On the Go. Collect free patterns by visiting the shops during the summer from June 21–September 5, 2017. Create a quilt using at least 8 different rows and be the first to bring it into a participating shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters. Use that shop's row in your quilt and win a bonus prize! Visit www.rowbyrowexperience.com for all the details and to find out what shops are participating. Check out the Minnesota Row by Row facebook page to see what's happening in Minnesota shops. Check out our row!
And of course, the dates for Quilt Minnesota are July 28–August 13, 2017. Pick up your passport at the first shop that you visit. Travel the state and get your passport stamped. There are fun prizes for completing different sections and a grand prize drawing for those visiting all of the participating shops. Details at www.quiltminnesota.com. We received our first shipment of Quilt Minnesota fabrics so we can get started working on our samples. Check them out here or stop in so see our samples.
Would you like to leave the driving to us? Give us a call at the shop to sign up for our Metro bus tour. Visit all 7 shops in our section on this one day tour for only $29.95!
