Dear Customers and Friends,

Susan and Nancy had a great time as guest speakers at South Minneapolis quilters last week. They talked, told stories about Glad and showed 35 of her quilts. It was really fun to visit this group and see so many longtime friends. Read our blog post about the event.

Mystery by mail 48 is ready to go!  You can check out the information about the kits on the web site or stop by the shop to see them.  Place your order for mystery by mail kits in the kit section of our online store or purchase in store.

Susan finished her Sylvia's Bridal Sampler quilt top—yeah!  If you're planning to have a quilt ready for our January Sylvia's Bridal Sampler show, be sure to stop in and pick up a registration form.  We don't need your quilt until late December but we need to know how many participants we'll have by Nov 15 so we can schedule the exhibit dates.

Coupon book holders, don't forget to redeem your Christmas Cheer coupon from October 17–22 and get started on those holiday projects.

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
