Dear Customers and Friends,

If you are interested in learning more about Glad and her quilts, Susan and Nancy will be telling "Glad's Story" at South Minneapolis Quilters on Tuesday, October 11 at 7:00 p.m.  They'll be bringing 30–35 quilts to show so it will be a really fun time with lots to see!  South Minneapolis Quilters meets at Southwest Community Church located at 1501 W 54th St in Minneapolis. Admission for non-members is $3.00.

The most exciting news this week is a HUGE shipment of Hoffman Batiks—always a welcome addition to our shelves. Come in now to plan your next batik quilt!

We had our final session of Sylvia's Bridal Sampler Club last week.  Many participants are planning to have quilts done for our display in January.  If you're planning to have a quilt done for the show but you missed this last session, stop by the shop to pick up a registration form.  We need to know by November 15 if you're planning to display a quilt so we can start making plans for January.  Quilts should be turned in by December 29.

Coupon book holders, don't forget to get your October deals: Redeem your Need some Needles coupon between October 6-8 and your Christmas Cheer coupon from Oct 17-22 (25% off regular priced Christmas fabric). It's not too early to get started on those holiday projects.

The newest Glad Creations pattern Sew Many Stars is now available on the web site and in the shop.  Kits are also available in two tempting colorways.

We drew for the lucky winner of the Northwoods quilt on October 1. We haven't reached the winner yet so I won't say who it is but we'll have her name posted in the shop. Remember that we'll have a new drawing every month until the end of 2011.  For the October drawing, four lucky folks will each win a $25.00 Glad Creations Gift Certificate. You can enter your name each time you come into the shop during the month.

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
