News from Quilter's JEM for the week of 12/18/19

1525 Central Ave NW / East Grand Forks MN 56721 / (218) 399-0159 /
Hello Friends!
We are getting very close to the holidays now, so let me first tell you which days we will be closed: Dec. 24-25 and Dec. 31 - Jan. 1.

Now, the other important holiday news is that from 12/19-23, when you buy a gift card up to $200, we will add 10% to that gift card! So, pay $200  and the gift card will be written for $220! 

If you are looking for a gift for a quilter - or if you are a quilter and you know someone who might be looking for a gift for *you* - we have lots of options in addition to a gift card. Kits, books, FQ bundles, and more! Don't forget about the Aurifil thread club (details below) for a year-round option!

Exciting news! In January we will be starting a 10-month Mystery Block of the Month designed by Pat Sloan!

It is called "Out West" and we are putting together bundles for this project - check in at the shop and see how they are shaping up! We've been talking with Pat and think this is going to be a really great project! We'll make one 12" block a month for a total of 9 blocks, plus setting instructions, for a quilt that finishes at 58" x 66".

New fabric at the shop! Spirited and bolts from Earthen by Art Gallery!

Join us for the AURIFIL COLOR BUILDERS CLUB, a remarkable (and colorful) Italian adventure!  From the lemon groves of Sicily to the pink sand beaches of Sardinia to the clear teal waters of Capri and the stark city grey of Milan...

Each collection is crafted to evoke images of Aurifil's beloved Italian landscape.  The colors were selected not only for their aesthetic appeal, but for their practicality in every day use.  We think you'll appreciate the Color Builder collections both for their beauty and for their utility.  Read the stories, absorb the hues, pick your favorites, and sign up for our 2020 Thread Club today!

Join us for an Italian dessert at our monthly "festa" when we unveil Aurifil's 50 weight thread color of the month in light, medium, and dark.  Also, you will receive their secret block of the month pattern.  Or, you can pick up your items or have them shipped.  Snowbirds included!
The cost is $39.95 per month.

Happy Sewing!
