Dear Customers and Friends,

The new Fall 2012 Class Schedule should arrive in the mail early in August. You can take a look at it on the website soon. You can also download it as a pdf file.  The first day to sign up for classes is Thursday, August 11.  

You won't want to miss our
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.

Quilt Minnesota, the statewide shop hop, starts Friday, July 29 and runs through Sunday, August 14.  Pick up your passport at the first shop you'll visit. Our hours during the shop hop will be: Sunday 12:00-5:00, Monday & Tuesday 9:30-8:30, and Wednesday-Saturday 9:30-5:00. Susan will be demonstrating the Rapid Fire LeMoyne Star tool along with other tools from Deb Tucker on Friday, July 29 and Saturday, July 30.

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

Have you been thinking about trying a Glad Creations kit?  Here's a great opportunity!  We've just reduced the price of our Weather Vane kits.  They're 30% off the original price.  This fun kit is available in two colorways - Graphic Rhythms and Pastel Batiks.  Get yours before they're all gone!

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

Hope to see you soon!
Nancy, Susan & Emily
