Holiday Stockings

Staff (and former staff) at Glad Creations gathered last week for our annual Holiday Stocking event. Thirteen of us set up a production line in the classrooms and we produced 28 stockings for the Holiday Basket Program organized by The Aliveness Project in Minneapolis.
Annemarie did a fantastic job of photography in between pinning together stockings. Emily and Eli even showed up to help for a while.
Of course, we topped the evening off with a batch of carrot cupcakes.
Check out the slide show to see us in action.

Little Quilts by Annemarie Yohnk

We had a fun Saturday at the shop this past weekend. Annemarie Yohnk was here to give 2 lectures about the little quilts she's made over the last several years as leader of our "Jo's Little Women" club. She shared her love making these little quilts and sharing them with club members and gave us a bit of a feel for the companionship that develops in the club.
We also were lucky to host the debut of Annemarie's new pattern line! If you watch the slide show below, you'll see the quilts that Annemarie has designed hanging at the front of the classroom.
If you couldn't make it to the lecture on Saturday, you can still see the quilt display. Annemarie's letting us keep it up through Dec. 20. We have over 40 of Annemarie's little quilts hanging in the classroom. Stop in if you get a chance.

Mystery Weekend at Glad Creations

Wow! We've just finished our 4th session of Mystery Weekend. We had nearly 80 folks participating in the 4 sessions. Now we can share the quilts and the show and tell. We snapped photos of all the fun quilts that the Mystery Weekend participants brought to share. Many of them were from past Mystery Weekends but we got to see lots of other fun projects as well. Click on the image below and enjoy the slide show - I've added names of the quilts that are Glad Creations designs.
If you're wondering which one is the mystery quilt, you'll see 4 versions included in the slide show - Forever Friends. Two of the quilts were made my Susan and myself. The other 2 were made by 2 high achieving students (Mary & Nathan) who attended the first session and returned to show their completed tops during the 2nd session!
