Dear Customers and Friends,

The big news in the shop is the fantastic selection of batiks right now.  We've gotten batik shipments from three different companies in the last two weeks!  We also have a selection of new prints from the Kaffe Fassett Collective (Westminster Fabrics).

Coupon book holders—be sure to stop in from December 1–7 to use your Roll your own discount coupon.  Roll the dice to see what your discount will be on regular price fabric, books & notions.  You'll also be entered into a drawing for a $100.00 shopping spree when you use this coupon!

The Winter Class Schedule is now available on the website. The first day to sign up for classes is Monday, December 12. Watch for the snail mail version of the class schedule in your mailbox soon.

Remember to enter your name in our monthly 35th Anniversary Celebration drawing.  You can enter your name each time you come into the shop during the month. There are just a few days left to enter our November drawing to win the Merry-go-round quilt. 

Our newest pattern, Checkerboard Stars, is now available.  This quilt was a mystery quilt in our 2009-2010 Scrap Tamers club.  We've seen loads of fun completed versions of this quilt.  It's a great pattern to use up some stash! Take a look at it on the website.

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
