Dear Customers and Friends,

The big topic this week is winter classes! Visit our
website to download a printable pdf of the Winter Class Schedule. Monday Dec 12 is the first day to sign up for classes—and there are some really fun ones coming up. 

Julie Arrowood will be teaching the Glacier Star class one more time starting in January.  She's also offering a class for the Bali Wedding Star, another Judy Niemeyer design.

Susan will be offering two sessions of the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star class—one on Saturday, February 4 and another on Wednesday, February 8.  This class filled up really fast in our fall session, so register soon if you're interested.

Cheri is having a great time with color her color classes.  The students in her Color Basics class were so excited that she's planned a new Color Club for some ongoing color-play.

We’ll be offering a brand new Block-of-the-Month Program starting in January 2012. 
Seasons in a Row
 is a fun 
row quilt with really cute blocks! Start January off with snowmen, hearts for February, kites for March…and on through the year.  Stop in or give us 
a call for details and sign-up information. We've put the sign-up sheet on the web site too! The finished quilt is 
76” x 94”. Fabric selections will be primarily batiks.

And, of course, we have sessions scheduled in March for Mystery Weekend #49!

Our Anniversary drawing for December is a fun Quilter's Gift Basket, including some of our favorite products— a $100.00 value! Be sure
to enter your name each time you come into the shop during the month.

There are a lot of fun events coming up in January right after the holidays. Our annual New Year's Sale is January 1–3. We'll be having two special exhibits of quilts from our Sylvia's Bridal Sampler club. The first runs January 1–10 and the second show (with all different quilts) runs January 12–21. The 2012 Glad Creations Coupon Book will be given out FREE in the shop from January 1–21. Make sure you plan your visit so you don't miss out on the fun!

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
