Dear Customers and Friends,

The Minnesota Quilters show
was great—what an incredible display of quilts! Read our blog post to hear more about our trip to the show. Congratulations to Jennifer and Debbie who both won ribbons on their Sylvia's Bridal Sampler quilts. Special thanks to everyone who displayed their Sylvia's Bridal Sampler quilt—it was an incredible display (see our slide show).

There are still lots of fun new items coming in that we ordered at quilt market. Some highlights: wooden picture frames with quilt designs, cling onz (magnetic pin holders), and a beautiful new Aurifil thread display. We now have more colors than ever!

There are still seats available on some of the buses that will be touring the Central East section during Quilt Minnesota (Elk River or Fridley buses still have available seats). We're also taking a waiting list for an additional White Bear bus departure!  We're extending our early bird special through the end of June—ride the bus for two days for only $89.00, PLUS receive a $10.00 coupon to spend at each shop. Click for more info.

There is still space in our July Summer School class—make an "I Spy" quilt with Cheri & Nathan on Saturday July 28.  Give us a call to register.

Coupon book holders, be sure to come in to redeem your July Wild Card coupon anytime during the month to receive 15% off any one regular priced item of your choice (some restrictions apply).

Mark your calendar for our Annual Summer Sale on July 12–14, 9:30–5:00.  Sale prices: Regular fabric 20% off; Selected fabric 50% off; Selected books and patterns - buy 1, get 1 free.

Also, please note that we will be closed July 4 (enjoy the holiday!) as well as on July 31 for inventory.

We're already busy thinking about new classes for fall. Dee thinks an appliqué or handwork club would be fun—maybe once a month on a Monday or Tuesday evening. She's even thinking about starting the new Pandemonium pattern by Kim McLean.  Let us know what you think?  Susan's thinking about a North Star class using the new Spotlight Tool from Deb Tucker. New Mystery quilts are in the works and of course, we're planning another year of Scrap Tamers Plus From Marti & Me Club.  So many fun things to do!
