Dear Customers and Friends,

Are you ready for the Row by Row Experience? We’re ready! Wednesday, June 21, is the first day. Here’s how it works: every participating shop designs a row for a quilt. This year’s theme is On the Go. Collect free patterns by visiting shops during the summer from June 21–Sept 5, 2017. There are no passports to have stamped. All you have to do is ask for the free pattern. Create a quilt using at least 8 different rows. Be the first to bring your finished (quilted, bound, and labeled) quilt to a participating shop that has not had a winner yet and win a stack of 25 fat quarters. Use that shop's row in your quilt and win a bonus prize! Visit www.rowbyrowexperience for all the details and to find out what shops are participating. We’ll have kits available for our row if you love the fabric selection. Check out the listing showing all participating Minnesota shops with photos of most of the rows and license plates. 

Mark your July calendar for our Summer Sale on July 6–8, 2017. All regularly priced fabric will be 20% off. This includes fat quarters and bundles but not kits. We'll also be refreshing our clearance area with new additions to our 50% off fabric, and more books will be added to our 30% off area. We’ve also decided to thin out our Glad Creations pattern line, so a "clearance" selection of our patterns will be available at 30% off the regular retail price.

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 sections and a grand prize for visiting all of the participating shops. Details are at We'll have some fun things happening in our section—each shop will have a travel inspired charm for you with your $10.00 purchase. When you complete the Metro section, you’ll receive a commemorative travel cooler.

Would you like to leave the driving to us? Give us a call to sign up for our Metro bus tour and visit all 7 shops in our section in one day for only $24.95! We’ll have buses leaving from 3 locations, Bloomington, Coon Rapids and Roseville, on the first weekend of the hop: Friday, July 28 and Saturday, July 29. We’ll also have one bus picking up in Coon Rapids on Saturday, August 5. The seats are filling so give us a call soon to reserve yours. We have a fun prize for bus riders in our section—a charm pack of the brand new Moda Grunge collection.

Shop notes:

  • Carole Wilder’s Featherweight: Beyond the Basics maintenance class meets Saturday, June 24 from 10:00–2:00. We still have a couple of openings.
  • Coupon book holders: Plan your own personal “sale day” this month. Choose any day in June to come in for a fabric shopping trip. You’ll receive 20% off regular priced fabric with your coupon. What a great time to plan a new project! Our 2017 Coupon Books are still available to purchase for $10.00.
  • Our annual inventory takes place on Wednesday July 26 this year. We’ll all be here but it’s not a great day for shopping. Of course, if you come to the door needing a spool of thread or a bit of fabric, we’ll open the door for you.

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!
