News from Quilter's JEM for the week of 7/2/20

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

We'll be closed Friday, July 3rd through Monday, July 6th this year to celebrate the holiday with friends and family - we hope you have something fun planned, too!

Looking for a firecracker of a project to work on in honor of the holiday? We have just what you need, whether you are looking for a lap project, a runner, a pillow or just need some yardage and a pattern to get going on something!

On Saturday, July 31st we'll be open, because Quilt Minnesota starts that day! Hooray! I hope that by now you have had a chance to look at the fabrics. Don't wait to place your preorder - Quilt Minnesota fabrics can run out fast! We have the bolts on display in the shop (also in the Special Edition Newsletter) and are taking pre-orders (the words in olive are out of stock) - click here for the form! We also have kits that can be preordered - below you will see sneak peeks of three runners, plus our lap quilt!

Bon Voyage Strip Quilt is a beautiful new kit and sample from our Tilda fabrics - these fabrics are just the right low-saturation colors to give your project the look and feel of a treasured vintage quilt!

We have Elizabeth Hartman's newest patterns in stock! Her patterns have a lot of pieces, yes, and some of them are small, but her directions are outstanding - well-illustrated, easy to follow, and yield great results. She also always gives you directions for a smaller project, too, and her designs are easily adaptable to many projects.

And Puppies! If you aren't one of the (lucky) people who got a pandemic puppy this spring, you can now have *as many quilty puppies as you want*!

(A puppy in glasses! Ack - too cute!)

Another new sample, with the summery Turtle Bay fabric line - great for those of us missing the beach this year!

And a new winter line: Winter Wonderland, which has a beautiful panel, a stripe, and so many really nice coordinates!
