Dear Customers and Friends,

Thanks to everyone who voted for us in the “Best of Powderhorn” competition. We are proud to be one of the winners. Check out the Best of Powderhorn magazine to see some of the other businesses that help make Powderhorn such a great neighborhood.

We've been having a great time this week greeting folks who are touring the state on the Quilt Minnesota shop hop. If you haven't started yet, there's still plenty of time. The statewide shop hop started July 28 and runs through August 13. Go to for all the details.

The Powderhorn Art Fair is next weekend, August 5 & 6. How about visiting the art fair and then stopping by Glad Creations to get your Quilt Minnesota passport stamped. 

The Row by Row Experience is going strong. Congratulations to Anne Tiller for completing her quilt and bringing it into Glad Creations. Her rows are from Red Pine Quilt Shop in Detroit Lakes, Craft Direct in St Cloud, Twin Cities Quilting in Roseville, Sew With Me in Stillwater, Sew with Me in Woodbury, Glad Creations, Dawn’s Quiltshop in Alexandria and Colorz Quiltshop in Baxter. Great job! We’ll have Anne’s quilt on display at the shop for a couple weeks. There are still plenty of participating shops that haven’t had a winner yet. Here’s how to win: collect row patterns from 8 (or more) shops, make them into a quilt and be the first one to bring in your finished quilt to a participating shop that has not yet had a winner. Your finished quilt should be quilted, bound and labeled. You’ll win a collection of 25 fat quarters plus a bonus if you used that shop’s row in your quilt.

The Fall Class Schedule has gone out in the mail to those of you who are receiving paper mailings. You can also download a pdf from our website or check out the individual class listings in the class section of our website. The first day to sign up for classes is Thursday, August 17

We'll be offering a new session of Scrap Tamers starting in September. Registration sheets with all the details will be available in the shop August 5. You can get a peek at the kits we’ll be offering for the Scrap Tamer Mystery quilt at that time as well. We’ll also be posting all of the info on our website next week. The first day to register for Scrap Tamers is Saturday, August 19. You can register by phone or in person.

Coupon book holders: Stop in this week, August 3–5 to use your coupon for rotary cutters, blades, mats and rulers. Who doesn’t need a new rotary cutter blade!

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

There's lots of quilting fun coming along. We hope to see you soon.
