Dear Customers and Friends,

We've been busy making samples and working on displays for our booth at the Minnesota Quilter's show in Rochester.  Now it's time to start packing the boxes!  We have loads of fun things planned for our booth.  Susan will be demonstrating tools from Deb Tucker including her new Spotlight tool. Stop by and say "Hi" if you're at the show.  We'll be in booth #103-104 in the "Arena". Our booth was in the Exhibit Hall the last few times the show has been in Rochester, so this will be a change for us.  Remember, if you're visiting the show, there are three rooms full of great exhibits.

We're also really looking forward to seeing the special exhibit of Sylvia's Bridal Sampler quilts at the show. During our 2-1/2 year long club at the shop, participants made quilts from the book Sylvia's Bridal Sampler by Jennifer Chiaverini.  The club culminated in two exhibits at the shop this past January, displaying the completed quilts. 
You can view slideshows of the two exhibits on our blog (Part 1 and Part 2). Now, 35 of the quilts will be hanging as a special exhibit at the Minnesota Quilters show.  Thanks to everyone who brought their quilts in to share!  And a special thanks to Patty Von Arx for putting the show together!
