Glad Creations Inc., News & Notes

This newsletter is mailed every other Monday.

January 7, 2013

Dear Customers and Friends,

We've had a wild start to the year with our New Year's Sale last week. It was fun to see so many friends stopping in. If you didn't make it to the sale, w
e still have 2013 Coupon Books available. Stop in and pick one up—they're free with any purchase through January 12.

We've had a great response to our staff quilt show—Vintage Glad's Quilts. Several of our staff (and former staff) selected a quilt from among the first 24 Glad Creations patterns and made the quilt up in current fabrics. What a fun display! It will be up through January 11 so you still have time to stop in to see these fun quilts. Check out the slide show on our blog!

We also have some really fun news to share. Susan and Nancy have been selected by Minnesota Quilters to be the 2013 Quilters of the Year! What an honor! We'll have a special exhibit at the Minnesota Quilters show in June. Read more here

Classes are starting soon, so be sure to get your registrations in. 
We've opened up an additional session of the Mariner's Compass Technique-of-the-month class. It will meet on Sundays, the same weekends as the Saturday class. Call to register. 

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
