Dear Customers and Friends,

We've been busy getting ready for fall classes to start. There's lots of excitement in the air as folks are selecting new projects or getting existing projects out for a fresh start. New fall fabrics began arriving this week. First, we received a new group from Andover Fabrics—Jo Morton's Leesburg. We've also received a beautiful selection of batiks from Island Batik.

There are still openings in a few classes coming up. See if any of the classes listed below tickle your fancy. Check out the class section of our web site for details.  If you've been thinking about taking one of Julie Arrowoods classes to learn Judy Neimeyer's paper piecing techniques, Christmas Celebrations is starting on Saturday. The project would make a beautiful autumn table topper with one of our fun autumn fabric lines.  Dee's Electric Quilt 7 class starts this coming Saturday too.  She has loads of information to share with you to help you use the great features available with Electric Quilt.

Coupon book holders, remember to use your Hit the Books coupon anytime during the month of September and receive 15% off any regular priced book of your choice.

We are super excited about our two new Glad Creations patterns, Hopscotch and Quilted Gems. We also have kits available for Quilted Gems in two great colorways!

And, as always, don't forget to "like" us on facebook to stay up to date with what's going on at the shop.

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
