Glad Creations Inc., News & Notes

This newsletter is mailed every other Monday.

January 21, 2013

Dear Customers and Friends,

We're off to a busy start this year! It's so fun to see folks coming in getting ready to start new projects for the new year. We're also helping lots of folks with the search for borders, backing and bindings for nearly complete projects.

Coupon book holders—stop by this week to start the new year right with a FREE Glad Creations pattern from January 21 - 26. When you stop in, be sure to check out our brand new red awning—new year, new look!

Winter classes are off to a bustling start. We've been having loads fun helping select fabric for the Mariner's Compass Technique-of-the-Month class. The Beginning Rotary Star Sampler class with Annemarie starts February 5 and still has a few openings. We have a Basic Machine Quilting class with Janet Moser coming up on Thursday, Feb. 7. And, just in time for Valentine's day, the Hugs & Kisses class with Cheri & Nathan will be held Saturday Feb, 9.

We hope you've all heard the exciting news! Susan and Nancy have been selected by Minnesota Quilters as the 2013 Quilters of the Year. We'll have a special display of quilts at the Minnesota Quilter's show in Duluth coming up in June. 
Read more on our blog! 

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
