Dear Customers and Friends,

The Twin Cities Shop Hop was loads of fun, with three days of non-stop visitors! There were some great prizes—the winner of our $200.00 value gift basket at Glad Creations was thrilled with her "Wishing Star" kit. You can see the list of winners on our website.  Mark your calendar for next year's hop - May 2 - 4, 2013!  We're working on some new and different ideas!

Our first shipment of Quilt Minnesota fabric is here and we're dreaming about samples to make. We can't sell fabric from the collection yet, but we'll have it on display, so please come in to check it out.  You can see the whole fabric collection at the Quilt Minnesota website. We also have a bargain you won't want to miss for our Central East Section Bus Tours! Read about it in Susan's blog post.

Susan and Nancy are going to International Quilt Market this week.  It's a great  change from day to day activities and a chance to refresh their creativity and see all the latest fabric and other products. They are sure to come home with loads of new ideas...and too many samples they want to make!

While Susan and Nancy are away at market, the staff is having a sample sale beginning on Saturday, May 19. We've done some tidying up and selected some samples that we no longer have a place for. Look for a selection of quilts, tote bags, wallhangings and tablerunners at bargain prices.

Coupon book holders, be sure to come in and redeem your coupon between May 24–26 to receive a free fat quarter of a patriotic print, our selection.

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
