News from Quilter's JEM for the week of 7/16/19

1525 Central Ave NW / East Grand Forks MN 56721 / (218) 399-0159 /
Hello Friends!

We are just two weeks away from our Minnesota Christmas comes to Quilter's JEM (August 1-15) and we are so excited to finally be able to show you all the beautiful holiday fabric and projects our staff of elves have been working on!

Here's something I can show you: a bundle of Moda's sparkly Forest Frost Glitter Favorites!

We have the bolts too!

Not ready to abandon summer yet? Blank's Chromaview panel and coordinates is just what you are looking for! These fabrics are digitally printed, for super saturation and long-lasting vibrant colors. The panel with a little inner border, a wider outer border, and binding is a quilt that nearly makes itself!

Also new in the shop are two new kits for sets of zipper pouches. The kits have everything you need: the fabric, interfacing, zippers, and patterns by our very own Jaydagirl Designs. If you've made one of Alana's projects before, you know her directions are clear and precise and her designs are terrifically smart! Here are both colorways for the pouches.

The JEM of the Week is our Love 4 Cotton kit, this week $30.00, regularly $34.99

We also have charm packs of Hallo-Harvest to go with the bolts!

Lots of great classes are on the horizon!
Upcoming classes:

No dates set yet, but if you've ever wanted to make a Lone Star quilt, keep an eye out for our upcoming class!

We'll also have an embroidery class starting soon! Details are in the works!

Jelly Roll Rug
with Alana - next session coming soon. This is a two-session class and you can be just as happy with your finished rug as this class participant is! What does it look like when a Jelly Roll Rug class is rolling along? Like this:
