Lazy Days of Summer!

Whatever happened to the lazy days of summer? We are busier than ever at the shop! The Minnesota Quilters show in St. Paul was wonderful. It's always one of the highlights of the year. It's so much fun for us to reconnect with all of our quilting friends. And the quilt display was great.
But that's not all! Today Nancy and I are the speakers at the St. Cloud Heritage Quilters guild meeting. We'll be heading up to St. Cloud this afternoon with about 25 quilts, some older, some newer, some rarely seen from our own collections. It's always fun to show the quilts and talk about our shop history. Did you know we will have been in business for 35 years in August? Things have certainly changed in the quilting world.
The class schedule is in the works. New classes for the fall and a new plan for Scrap Tamers. Watch for it to come in the mail in early August. And you should be getting a postcard about our pre-inventory sale coming up July 14-16.
We are also busy getting ready for the Quilt Minnesota Shop hop which begins on July 29th. Our fabric has arrived, so we are busy getting some samples made. Shelly and Pat made a fun display of the fabrics so come in and get a sneak peek! I took a photo, but it is much better to see it in person! If you were thinking of taking one of the convenience buses, give us or one of the other shops a call. Sign ups have been a little slow--so decisions will be made soon on whether all of the buses will run.
