News from Quilter's JEM for the week of 8/7/19

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

Our summer event, A Minnesota Christmas Comes to Quilter's JEM, continues through August 15th. New kits, new fabric lines, new arrangements in the shop - come and see!

We have had so much fun with this event, and hope you have too! We have more fun things planned for the rest of the year, including vending at the Quilting on the Red show October 25-26 in Grand Forks.

We are so pleased to be able to offer a class on Sunday 10/27 with presenter Pamela Goecke Dinndorf. This will be an all day class, lunch provided, on the cover project from her Parallel Lines book. All the projects in this book are stunning, and we can't wait to learn more about using stripes to create dynamic quilts! Be sure to register soon; spots are being claimed!

We are getting ready to start up our Summer Moon Quilt-Along in the last week of August - sign ups are open! All you need to play along is a book, a bundle of FQs, and some background fabric.

We have the book and FQ bundles in lots of different styles - modern, traditional, vintage, neutral, you name it! We'll have quarterly meetings to share blocks and progress, but this is primarily a sew-on-your-own event, with weekly emails in your inbox full of pep talk, tips, and examples! Give us a call, send an email, or stop in to sign up!

Sip & Snip panel plus fun coordinating bolts

Grunge Metallic charm packs
