Dear Customers and Friends,

The 15th Annual Quilt Shop 'til You Drop Twin Cities Quilt Shop Tour is just around the corner. The dates are May 3 - 5, 2012.  Stop in and pick up your map so you can start planning your tour. 

Visit all 9 participating shops to be entered in a drawing for some great prizes including a Janome sewing machine (donated by Valley West Sewing), a Bernina 900D Serger (donated by Bear Patch Quilting) and a Hemline sewing machine trolley (donated by A-1 Sewcraft). One lucky quilter will also win a Gift Certificate Bonanza ($25.00 to spend at each of the 9 shops)! And, there's more—each shop has planned a gift basket valued at $200.00. We'll be drawing names for the winners of those baskets too!

While you're touring, you can pick up a pattern for a free 12" Basket block at each shop that you visit. Each shop has designed a fun quilt layout using the basket blocks.  Purchase your favorite layout pattern—or maybe even a kit if you love the fabrics we've used. 
Visit the events page  on our web site for more details. Also be sure to visit  the Twin Cities Shop Hop Facebook page to keep up with the latest news.

The big news at the shop this week is Batiks, Batiks, Batiks!  We've received 3 shipments of new batiks since the last update.  That's 103 bolts of brand new batiks.  See the details below.

And, last but not least, Nancy's a grandma!  Liliana arrived 3 weeks early, weighing in at 7.0 pounds.  Everyone is healthy and the new parents are adjusting to living with no sleep. 

Please note that in addition to our regular Tuesday evening hours, we'll also be open every Monday evening during April until 8:30.

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
