August 20, 2012

Dear Customers and Friends,

The deliveries have been very quiet this week. No new fabric, but we have received a couple of fun new books. It's probably just as well, since we've been busy greeting customers traveling the state for Quilt Minnesota—what a fun time! We've enjoyed visiting with shop hoppers and hearing about fun things going on around the state.

Now that Quilt Minnesota is done we can start thinking about fall and all the great classes coming up. Class registrations have been coming in for the last few days. Some classes are beginning to fill, but most classes still have some space in them.

The next big event is Scrap Tamers sign-up day on Saturday, August 25. Stop in to pick up our information sheet or download one from the web site. We've selected two fun fabric combinations to make kits for the Scrap Tamers Mystery Quilt. The fabric selections will be on display on signup day. You can reserve one of our kits, or plan to use fabric from your stash.

Coupon book holders, be sure to redeem your
Happy Birthday Glad! coupon. Come in to the shop to pick up a FREE fat quarter (Glad’s choice!) between August 20–22, 2012.

And, as always, don't forget to "like" us on facebook to stay up to date with what's going on at the shop. Followers have really been enjoying the quilt photos we've been posting.

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
