Dear Customers and Friends,

Signs of fall are in the air! We’re ready to head to our sewing rooms to start some new projects. How about you? Nancy has been taken with two of the quilts from Kaffe Fassett’s new book Quilts in Ireland. Check out our photos of new fabrics below and you’ll see the Kaffe Fassett prints that we were inspired to order. Susan’s getting ready to start her quilt for our January staff quilt show—Medallion Quilts. She’s planning a Mariner’s Compass medallion quilt using the tools from Robin Ruth Designs. You can learn the technique for using these tools in our Mariner’s Compass class.

Check out the class schedule on our website for the full lineup of fall classes. We have samples of all of the class projects on display. Many of our fall classes have filled quickly. We’ve added a second session for the Storm at Sea quilt that will be held on December 9, 10:00–4:00.

Here are a few classes that are coming up soon:

  • 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.
  • Scrap Tamers Club - starts on Sept. 16. This is a monthly club that meets on the 3rd Saturday of each month for 6 months. There are still a few spaces available in the 1:15 session.
This year Glad Creations is once again joining the Harvest Shop Hop  from October 12–21. Participating shops are Eagle Creek, Quilter’s Haven, Noble Quilter, Four Seasons and Pins n Needles. 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. We’re all making up samples in our own selection of fabrics. Visit all 6 shops to be eligible for some great prizes. We’ll be drawing winners for two sewing machines—a Singer Featherweight and a Bernina 215. In addition, 12 lucky winners will receive a $25.00 gift certificate. We’re having a bus for the Harvest Hop on Saturday, October 14. The bus is $39.00 and includes lunch! The southern bus pickups will be at Eagle Creek and Quilter’s Haven, northern buses will start at The Noble Quilter and Four Seasons. Pins ‘n Needles will be running a bus for those of you who are in their area.

Coupon Book Holders: come in anytime during September with your coupon book to receive 15% off any regular price book. We have lots of titles to choose from.

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.
