And the winners are

Congratulations to the winners of our quilt giveaway. Judy Thayer won the Magic Carpet quilt and Gloria Meyer won the Twice as Nice. I think they were both thrilled and we were thrilled for them. We were glad so many of you came in to see our new carpeting. We only wish we could have given quilts to all of you. We thank you so much for being a part of our lives. We have made so many friends through quilting and appreciate the support you have given us. We hope to see you all soon.

Twin Cities Shop Hop

The Twin Cities Shop Hop runs next week from April 29-May 1. Fun, fun, fun! Visit all 10 shops to be eligible for the great prizes. Each shop will be giving out a pattern for a 9" quilt block. You need to go to all 10 shops to receive the block patterns. This year each shop has designed it's own quilt with those 10 blocks. Not only that--each has made the quilt with it's own selection of fabrics. This is our quilt. It's called Salt Water Taffy and was designed by Amy Miller, one of our staff members. We think she made a wonderful quilt. We have a poster showing the quilts from each of the different shops. You can see the poster at our shop or if you are a member of Facebook, you can see it on the Twin Cities shop hop facebook page. Each shop hop participant will receive a coupon for one free layout. If you love more than one, you can purchase others. We hope to see you during the Twin Cities Shop Hop. It's a fun event with great prizes, displays and demos. Hope you can join in the fun.

Mystery Weekend 45

March was a busy month with 4 sessions of Mystery Weekend 45. Nearly 80 people participated in this round of Mystery Weekend sessions! Now we can reveal our quilts. We call this quilt "Fancy That!". We'll be adding this quilt to our line of Glad Creations patterns sometime this summer.

One of the highlights of Mystery Weekend for us is the Show and Tell. We saw lots of recently completed quilts - what a productive group. Check out the slide show below of the Show and Tell from all 4 sessions. I added quilt names to the designs that are Glad Creations patterns.

By the way,the new carpet is in place and we've put the shop back together - whew! Come in and check it out.

New Carpet

You think you have a stash! We just spent 2 days cleaning out the entire shop to get ready for the new carpet. What a job! Thanks ever so much to staff, family and friends, the upstairs and downstairs are almost empty and the carpet is now being installed. The bathroom, office and basement are mighty full! You might worry about an avalanche in the bathroom. And you have to make yourself very thin to enter the office. It will be a huge job to get everything back in the right spot. But we can hardly wait to see it all finished. We will be reopening on April 6. Be sure to come in to check it out and also to enter the drawing to win one of two bed sized quilts. We will be ready for a celebration!
See you soon, Susan
