Dear Customers and Friends,

We're busy this week getting ready for the 15th Annual Quilt Shop 'til You Drop Twin Cities Quilt Shop Tour. The dates are May 3 - 5, 2012. We getting all spruced up so we'll be ready for all the fun. Pick up a map so you can start planning your tour!

Susan will be demonstrating the new Tessellating Windmill pattern/template from Marti Michell Thursday & Friday of the shop hop. Demos will run continuously from 10:00–12:00 and 1:00–3:00 both days.

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!

We're putting the finishing touches on our layout pattern and kits for our shop hop quilt! While you're touring, you can pick up a pattern for a free 12" Basket block at each shop. Each shop has designed a fun quilt layout using the basket blocks.  Purchase your favorite layout—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.

Please note that in addition to our regular Tuesday evening hours, we'll also be open every Monday evening during April until 8:30.  We'll also have Monday evening hours on May 7 & 14.

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
