Our fall class schedule is ready! If you still get paper mailings, you should have it by now. If you've switched over to electronic notifications, you can view the fall classes on the website. You can also download a copy of the fall brochure. If you prefer, stop by the shop and pick up a copy. Make a note on your calendar—the first day to register for fall classes is Thursday, August 16. 

Susan will be teaching some of her favorite classes this fall in addition to bringing back the Blooming Nine-Patch quilt from the book "Tradition with a Twist". We've made some great new samples! Cheri has planned a brand new machine piecing class that will be great for beginners as well as for those who want to refine their machine piecing skills.  Pat will be offering a great class line up for students working on traditional skills, including Beginning Quiltmaking.

What's coming up:

In honor of Glad's 100th birthday we have filled our upstairs with a selection of her beautiful applique quilts.  The quilts will be hanging for the whole month of August. Don't miss this great display!  Here's a sneak peak of some of Glad's beautiful applique quilts. You'll see quilts from some of Glad's favorite designers: Patricia Cox, Kim McLean, and Piece O'Cake Designs.

Another treat for Glad's birthday - with any in-store purchase during the month of August, you can request your free "Glad's Birthday" fat quarterAll you have to do is ask!  We've selected an assortment of prints that we know Glad would love working with!

Here's an update on the Alaska Quilting Adventure August 16 - 23, 2019. We heard from Stitchin' Heaven that the Quilting Adventure is full but they are taking a waiting list in case there are cancellations. If you've been thinking about joining the cruise, contact Stitchin' Heaven to get on the waiting list.

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
