News from Quilter's JEM for the Week of 5/8/19

1525 Central Ave NW / East Grand Forks, MN 56721 / (218) 339-0159 /
Hello Friends!

Mother's Day is coming, and while we do offer gift certificates that your loved ones can purchase for you...we also have something special for those who want to buy themselves something fabulous! Now through Saturday, May 11, 2019 when your purchase totals $100 or more, you'll receive a free 1300m spool of Aurifil thread - your choice of color! *You don't have to be a mother to take advantage of this special!

I have some really lovely things to show you this week, and I am going to dive right in to the new line from BasicGrey that has all of us here at Quilter's JEM just giddy with love! Here is Nova!

Whether you are looking forward to summer travel and camping or sitting on the patio with a cool beverage, Lewis & Irene have a fabric line for you! Here is Littondale and Cocktail Party! (And there is nothing stopping you from mixing your camping and cocktails, either.)

If you are looking for some modern prints to add to your stash, Paintbrush Studio's Abstract Collage is here for you. We have four bolts from this bold collection.

Now, maybe you are the kind of person who likes to plan ahead and you are itching to start a Halloween project? If so, come in and check out Cheekyville from StudioE! Cute bolts, a haunted house panel, and a kit on the way to boot!

We now have Valdani perle cotton in stock in a variety of beautiful colors, and embroidery makes the perfect take-along project, too.

The JEM of the Week is Stacy Iset Hsu's Best Friends Forever Playhouse - a mega-panel from which you can make a carry-along playhouse, four dolls and their four animal friends, a rug, and a pillow! Usually this panel is $34.99, but this week you can get it for $31.50. Stacy is so great at these panels, and her directions (included as part of the panel!) are clear and easy to follow.
