Dear Customers and Friends,

We’re looking forward to a fun and busy fall. Our fall 2017 class schedule is available at the shop and on our website. What a great way to learn and enjoy the company of other quilters! Signup has started, but there are still openings in some of the classes.

Here are the September classes that still have openings:
  • Pat’s Thursday Regulars - a great opportunity to work on your ongoing applique projects.
  • Color Basics with Cheri - we see Cheri’s students come in selecting projects with much more confidence after learning the basics of working with color.
  • Mariner’s Compass - learn to use the new tool from Robin Ruth to make a strip pieced Mariner’s Compass.
  • Beginning Rotary Star Sampler with Annemarie covers the basics of rotary cutting and machine piecing. The techniques covered in this class will give you confidence to approach many quilting projects.
  • Machine Quilting - You don’t need a special machine to do your own machine quilting. Janet will guide you through the basics of quilting on your sewing machine.
Wow! Stop in to see our class samples and get some help choosing the right class for you.

Our 2017-2018 Scrap Tamers Club will be starting in September. We have information about it in the class schedule and on the website. Signup day was wild as always. Quilters were lined up on a beautiful Saturday morning, waiting for the shop to open to get their choice of sessions. The 1st two sessions are full, but there are still a few openings in the 1:15 session.

Quilt Minnesota is now over. It was a fun time with lots of visitors. If you are looking for the Quilt Minnesota fabric, we still have several of the pieces. Sorry—no lady slippers! The Row by Row Experience is still going on and runs through September 5. If you haven’t picked up the pattern for our row yet, stop in by September 5 to receive the free pattern or purchase a kit. After that date, the patterns and kits will not be available again until November 1.

Watch for more details coming along for the Harvest Shop Hop in the next email update. The dates are October 12–21. We’ll be teaming up with Eagle Creek, Pins ‘n Needles, Quilter’s Haven, Noble Quilter and Four Seasons. Right now we’re busy working on blocks for our featured quilt. Pick up a step of the pattern at each shop—purchase a kit for your favorite if you wish.

Have you seen the new book: Kaffe Fassett’s Quilts in Ireland? Paging through the book this week inspired us to re-order fabrics used in 2 of our favorite quilts!

Coupon book holders: Don’t forget the Hit the Books coupon in September—15% off any regular priced book during the month. Also, mark your calendar to stop in to pick up Susan's Happy Birthday fat 1/4 - Sept. 7 - 9.

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.
