Dear Customers and Friends,

It's time once again for our annual Summer Sale later this week! The sale runs Thursday, July 14 through Saturday, July 16. Sale prices are: 20% off regular priced fabric, 50% off selected fabric, an extra 10% off remnants. Selected books and patterns are buy one, get one free (equal or lesser value). Don't miss it!

Quilt Minnesota is just around the corner, starting July 29 and running through August 14!  It's the last call to sign up for bus tours, so don't miss your chance. Check here for more information.

Coupon book holders, don't forget to use your Wild Card coupon any time during the month of July.  Receive 15% off of one regular priced item (kits and finished quilts not included, not to be used with any other discounts).

We're busy working on our Fall Class Schedule. It will go to the printer at the end of July so look for it in your mailboxes or check the web site early in August. The first day to sign up for fall classes is Thursday, August 11.  Highlights of the fall lineup include: New Mystery Quilts, a Machine Quilting refresher class with Dee, a new Color class with Cheri, and a chance to learn to use the Rapid Fire LeMoyne Star tool with Susan.

We'll also be starting a new Scrap Tamers "Plus"
From Marti & Me club in the Fall. This year we will be combining the favorite features of our Scrap Tamers Club, including a mystery quilt, with a new club called "From Marti and Me".  As part of the From Marti and Me Club, each month club members will receive a pattern for a project which features one of the Marti Michell tools or template sets. The sign up day for this club is Saturday, August 27. You'll be able to read about details in the Fall Class Schedule when it is ready!

Susan and Nancy spoke to the St. Cloud Heritage Quilters last Thursday.  What a fun group! The Quilt Show they're planning for October sounds amazing. They plan to display around 500 quilts!  Visit their website to read about it.

Please note, we will be closed for inventory Wednesday, July 27. Also, remember that we're now open every Tuesday evening until 8:30.

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
