News from Quilter's JEM for the week of 12/29/2019

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

Happy New Year from Quilter's JEM.  We will be closed December 31-January 1 for the New Year Holiday.  We will be open Thursday, January 2, 2020.

January will bring two exciting BOM opportunities! 

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.

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

We are putting together bundles for Out West 2020 BOM - 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".
