Fall is in the air. Are you ready to start a new project? Or maybe a class? You can view the fall classes on our website. You can also download a copy of the fall brochure. If you prefer, stop by the shop and pick up a copy. 

Here are a couple of classes that are coming up soon:

  • Are you new to quilting or do you have a friend who would like to get started? Beginning Quiltmaking with Patricia Cox starts on Tuesday, September 25, 6:00–8:00 and runs for 8 sessions. Patricia teaches the basics of traditional quiltmaking. You’ll learn to cut out your fabric pieces and stitch by hand as you create traditional blocks for a 9-block sampler quilt. This is a great foundation for developing your quiltmaking skills.
  • Susan's LeMoyne Star class still has openings. Learn how to use Deb Tucker's LeMoyne Star Trim-Down tool.  Make perfect stars with no y-seams!.  Class meets Saturday October 6, 10:00 - 4:00 (corrected date).
  • We have one opening left in the Blooming Nine-Patch class, scheduled for Saturday,  September15 & 29, 10:00 - 12:30.
  • There are also a couple of openings left in Susan's Paper Piecing Workshop - Saturday, September 29, 1:30 - 4:00.

What's coming up:

Susan has been busy working on blocks from Elizabeth Hartman's latest book, North Stars.  She's been posting them on facebook as she completes them but in case you haven't been following along, here are Susan's first three blocks. Stop in and see them on display at the shop.

North Star Willa Walrus Lucille the Seal Meredith Muskox

Elizabeth has created a fun line of fabrics for Robert Kaufman Fabrics that are used in these blocks. We will be making fat eighth bundles, one for each of the 9 blocks in her quilt. There are some quilt size choices in the book, depending on how many of the blocks you want to make.   We're waiting for last 2 fabrics to arrive, and plan to begin cutting bundles this week.

If you purchased North Star last spring when it came out, check for a couple of corrections on Elizabeth's web site.  

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
