Dear Customers and Friends,

Fall classes are already starting—be sure to check out our class schedule online. We have loads of fun classes coming up this fall.

Susan and Nancy had a great visit with the New Ulm quilt guild last week.  We brought lots of quilts to show.  What a fun and active group of quilters!

The final session of Sylvias Bridal Sampler club is next week.  Sign up for afternoon or evening on September 26 or evening on September 27.   We've had several people in the shop recently laying out their blocks, selecting sashing and getting ready to finish their Sylvia's quilts which is really exciting!

We're getting ready to send out information about Mystery by Mail 48 in the mail during the first week of October.  Let us know if you'd like to receive swatches by mail.  We'll also have photos of the fabric selections posted on the web site by October 8.  This will be the same quilt that we'll be working on during Mystery Weekend.  Supply lists for Mystery weekend will be going out in the mail during the week of September 26.

Don't forget that our
35th anniversary celebration has begun! Stop in the shop to enter the drawing any time during September for a chance to win our Northwoods quilt. We’ll draw the name of the lucky winner on Oct. 1. You can enter our drawing every time you visit the shop—enter as often as you like. (One entry per visit. Must be at least 18 years old).

Coupon book holders, be sure to use your Hit the Books Coupon to receive 15% off any regular priced book of your choice before the end of September.

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
