September 3, 2012

Dear Customers and Friends,

Quilt Minnesota is over for this year. Thanks to all of you who participated. We enjoyed meeting and greeting all of you, and hope you had a great time. The winners for our sectional prizes have been chosen and we’re in the process of contacting them.

The Fall Class Schedule is ready, and is available at the shop and on the website. Classes will be starting the week of September 10. There are still openings in many classes—see below for a list of classes starting soon that still have space available.

The first session of our new year-long Scrap Tamers Plus Marti & Me Club will be on Saturday, Sept 15. This club meets the 3rd Saturday of the month for 9 months. Signup day was Saturday, August 25 and judging from the enthusiastic lines waiting to sign up, it should again be a great year. The 10:00 and 11:15 sessions are full, but there are still a few openings in the 1:15 time slot. Call the shop if you are interested in more information about this fun club or to order one of the Scrap Tamers Mystery Bundles.

Coupon book holders, be sure to redeem your Happy Birthday Susan! coupon. Come into the shop to pick up a free fat quarter (Susan’s choice) between Sept. 6–8.

Nancy and Susan will be part of the Minnesota Quilters September meeting on Sept 6 and Sept 8. They will be demonstrating a number of Deb Tucker's square-up rulers during the schoolhouse part of the meetings. Minnesota Quilters is a great organization with fun and educational monthly meetings. Check out their website for meeting details.

And, as always, don't forget to "like" us on facebook to stay up to date with what's going on at the shop.
We’ve been posting some fun photos. Last week we posted some photos of Glad at her 94th birthday party.

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
