New Arrivals from Twin Cities Quilting

Hi Everyone,

First off, Jamie and I are off to Quilt Market in Kansas City first thing in the morning.  I hope to post some photos on Instagram while I'm there.  We've been looking forward to seeing new items.  I've been ordering the new fabrics like mad.  Many of the manufacturers are releasing goods this summer that are perfect for Twin Cities Quilting.  I know you will love them as I introduce you to them in these emails.  Right now we are receiving less fabric than usual.  That should change over the next month.  As you know ...

New Arrivals from Twin Cities Quilting

Hi Everyone,

Our newest arrivals are new shelving.  I have been wanting for this for so long!  Trying to find someone to make what I wanted was challenging but we finally got it done.  At least for a little while I won't have to spend extra time trying to fit in all of the new bolts that keep coming through the door.  It's funny though,  there is not as much extra room as I anticipated.  We have two new areas of shelving and two new areas to house our notions, patterns and rulers.

Here are the before and ...

New Arrivals and Class from Twin Cities Quilting

Hi Everyone,

Classes:

We added a new class 'Fresh Cut'.  It uses Sue Spargo's books and her popular flowers.  So many of you have purchased the book and asked about having a class.  And since Pam has made so many of the blocks in the book we felt a class was the next step.  It will meet on four Tuesday evenings from 6-9 pm on April 30 and May 7, 14 and 21st.  Click here to get more information and sign up.  This is perfect timing before summer.  Prep your blocks so you can take the hand stitching with ...

Hi Everyone,

It is with a heavy heart that I tell you my mother passed away last week.  Many of you ask about my mother when you stop in.  For some time she had been in a slow decline.  I felt so bad for her over the last few months that I am thankful she is now in a better place.  I am a third generation quilter on my mother's side of the family.  She shared with me her love of cloth and all things artful.  She motivated me to explore the quilting world and all it has to ...

Classes and New Arrivals from Twin Cities Quilting

Hi Everyone,

I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season.  For me, the holiday season was one of the best in a while.  I spent time with family and I got a lot of time to myself to sew.  Both holidays were rare three day holiday weekends for me which made them extra special.  

Start the new year off with taking a class and improving your sewing skills.  We have a great list of classes this winter.  Click here to view our class offerings.

We still have room in our daytime beginner class starting January 15th.  This five ...
