Dear Customers and Friends,

We're almost ready for Mystery by Mail 49. We'll be doing the same quilt by mail that we're offering for Mystery Weekend, so if you aren't able to join us in the shop for Mystery Weekend 49 you can still join the fun! We plan to have the kits ready for Mystery by Mail during the week of March 5.  Send us an email with your mailing address if you would like to receive swatches in the mail.  If you prefer to look at photos of the fabric online, we'll have them posted on our website and will include a link in the next email update.

We've recently received two really fun groups of Jo Morton prints—Jo's Variety and Bridgeport.  We've made up fat quarter bundles of these groups so look for them on your next trip to the shop.

Susan and Nancy visited the Dakota Star Quilters guild last week and spoke to a packed house.  What a fun group to spend the day with! Their quilt show is up through March 2 at the Dakota County Historical Society.

We're busy making plans for the 15th annual Twin Cities Shop 'til You Drop happening May 3 - 5, 2012.  Each of the 9 participating shops will be giving out a pattern for a different 12" Basket block and has designed a unique layout for the blocks—pick your favorite! Our layout pattern is called Daisy Basket. As always, there will be loads of fun prizes and wonderful things to see. Stay up to date on Shop Hop information on Facebook.

Coupon book holders, don't forget to come in with your coupon book from February 20-25 for a 30% discount on Christmas fabric from the 2011 season.

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
