Glad Creations Inc., News & Notes

This newsletter is mailed every other Monday.

July 23, 2012

Dear Customers and Friends,

Quilt Minnesota is just around the corner.  We've been working on some fun samples using the Quilt Minnesota fabric!  Our Central East section has created a great "Quilter's Pocket Reference Guide".  Each shop in our section will be giving away a credit card size reference card with your $10.00 purchase.  The cards will include information like what size to cut setting triangles, backing yardage, standard quilt sizes for different size beds and much more.  Visit all 11 shops and collect all the cards—at the last shop you'll receive a cute little zipper pouch to keep them in (while supplies last). 

The Powderhorn Art Fair is also coming up on August 4 & 5.  Plan to stop in and visit if you're touring the art fairs.  Keep in mind that parking by the shop can be a bit tricky during the art fair—you may have to park a couple blocks away. 

Please note that we will be closed all day for inventory on July 31. It will be a busy day for us counting everything in the shop!

We're having loads of fun on facebook. "Like" us to stay up to date with what's going on at the shop. Check out our timeline—we've posted some fun customer and staff photos of Glad Creations patterns done in different colorways.

The Fall Class Schedule goes to the printer later this week.  It will be mailed around August 3, as well as posted as a downloadable pdf on the web site on that same date.  We have lots of fun classes planned for fall.  Susan has scheduled a North Star class using Deb Tucker's new Spotlight Tool.  Dee is starting a Handwork Club that will meet one Monday evening each month.  Julie has planned a class to make a Judy Neimeyer tree skirt or table topper (see the picture below in the new books & patterns section).  She'll also be leading a day for folks who need some help getting back on track with their Judy Neimeyer projects—Finish Your Judy Projects. And of course, Mystery Weekend #50! The first day to sign up for fall classes is Thursday, August 16. 

We'll also have a new Scrap Tamers plus Marti & Me Club starting in the fall. It will include a Glad Creations Mystery along with fun monthly projects from Marti & Me. Registration for this fun club begins Saturday, August 25.

Coupon book holders, don't forget to redeem your July Wild Card coupon by the end of the month to receive 15% off any one regular priced item of your choice.

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
