We hope you’re all busy with some fun winter projects. Those of us in the Twin Cities metro area have had a good amount of snow this past week to keep us home with our quilting. We had 12 inches here at Glad Creations!

Have you heard about our Quilt for Kids volunteer group? Marion Nichols and Gail Kieper lead this group of quilters at their monthly sessions and make the quilt deliveries to various organizations. Marion just sent me an update on what they accomplished in 2017. They’re amazing! Over 400 quilts of various sizes were completed in 2017. Quilts were given to Children’s Hospital Pain and Palliative Care, St. Joseph’s Home, Veterans Home, People Serving People Family Shelter, Tubman Shelter for Women, University Masonic Children’s Hospital, University Cancer Care Center. And so as not to waste any scraps they made and donated 200+ pet beds to the Animal Humane Society.

This group was started in 2002 by Georgia Johnson. Marion took over leadership and brought Gail on to help handle the project. They just gave me a list of how many quilts have been made over the years. The numbers weren’t clear for the first few years but from 2006 to 2017 this dedicated group has made and donated over 4000 quilts!

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!
