October 1, 2012

Dear Customers and Friends,

We've been busy at the shop getting ready for our fall Mystery quilts. The supply list for Mystery Weekend #50 has just gone out in the mail. If you're registered for one of the sessions, watch your mail this week for the list to arrive. We have kits cut with the fabrics that we used in our samples—come in and check them out! Even if you're planning to use fabric you already have, seeing the kits may inspire your selections.

We're also getting ready for Mystery by Mail #50. The ordering information will be ready around October 10. Send us an email at or give us a call if you'd like to receive swatches in the mail. We'll have photos and information up on the website by October 10 as well. This is the same quilt pattern as Mystery Weekend, but offered as a kit with clues in the mail for those of you who aren't able to join us at the shop for one of the weekend sessions.

We're hosting a special "Shopping Party" for the Minnesota Contemporary Quilters on Thursday, October 18. We'll be open special hours for this fun event! We have fliers  available at the shop with information about getting a ticket for this special event. There will be refreshments, door prizes, special discounts and, of course, loads of fun! All ticket proceeds benefit Minnesota Contemporary Quilters.

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
