A note of thanks to all of our loyal customers!

Nothing lasts forever!  It is with mixed emotions that we have decided close Glad Creations sometime after the 1st of the year.  We opened the shop in 1976.  That’s 42 years ago.  We never imagined that we would still be in business in 2018.  It has been a wonderful and fulfilling adventure.  We have become friends with so many people, worked with beautiful fabrics, learned new techniques and have loved inspiring and teaching others.  But we have decided that it’s time to turn the page to the next phase of our lives, retirement.  We talked to several quilters who wished to own a quilt shop.  Isn’t that everyone’s dream?  But as of now, nothing has worked out. 

Our plan is to run our shop as usual until the end of 2018.  We still have some classes coming up and new fabric coming in.  We have a huge shipment of Hoffman batiks on the way, some reorders of our Aboriginal prints and a new group from Moda called Voysey, based on some prints from the Victoria and Albert Museum.   We will start our liquidation sale on the 1st of the year, during our annual New Year’s sale.  Our yearly staff quilt show “Our Color Story” will be on display from January 1 – 12.  Sad that this will be our last show!  What a wonderful staff we have been blessed with.   We plan to continue marketing the Glad Creations pattern line.  Final plans for how that will work are not yet determined. We will be working out the final liquidation details and will let you know of our plans through our E-mail updates and on our facebook page.  Be sure to follow us!

And a special word of thanks to all of you for your support and your friendship.  We have shared joys and sorrows, laughter and grieving with so many of you.  You have become like family.  We will miss you and can’t thank you enough for your friendship.
