Glad Creations Inc., News & Notes

This newsletter is mailed every other Monday.
January 14, 2018


2018 is off to a great start. Many of you enjoyed this year’s staff challenge quilt show, Medallion Quilts. This may have been our best show yet! We’ve taken the show down now but we’ve put together a slideshow so you can continue to enjoy the quilts.

Looking for a new project for the new year? Our class schedule is posted on the website.

Coming soon:
  • Cheri’s Beginning Rotary Star Sampler class has a few spaces available. Cheri covers some great techniques to get you started with machine piecing. If you’ve already done some machine piecing, this class is a great chance to refine your piecing skills and learn some new tricks.

We know many of you have heard of changes that will be coming at Glad Creations. Here’s an excerpt from “Susan’s Corner” if you missed seeing our Winter 2018 Class Schedule.

This winter and spring will be bringing some big changes for us. After 41 years of Glad Creations, Nancy and Susan are looking forward to retirement. Although we have so enjoyed and loved being part of the quilting industry, we are looking forward to spending more time on ourselves and with our families. We have the possibility of selling the business. Hopefully that will work out. If it does, Glad Creations will remain a thriving and welcoming shop. If not, we plan to liquidate our merchandise in the spring. One way or the other, our pattern line will continue—and we’ll still be involved in quilting.

Since our plans are not yet finalized, we will need to keep you informed. Expect updated information in this E-mail newsletter and on our facebook page. And you will definitely see us around. We’ll show up at guild meetings, at quilt shows, and who knows where else. Once quilting is in your blood, there is no way out of it.

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

Happy Quilting!

Nancy, Susan & Emily
