News from Quilter's JEM for the week of 7/10/20

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

We are getting super close to Quilt Minnesota! Are you ready? Did you pre-order your fabric and kits yet? We have already sold out of a couple bolts, so don't wait much longer! Our Special Edition newsletter tells you more and has an order form you can use - if you order a fabric that we are out of, we will give you a call!

I have some new fabric I am very excited to tell you about today! I am always on the lookout for fabrics that are unusual and beautiful to bring into the shop, and recently I had the opportunity to order some really extraordinary fabric from M&S Textiles Australia. Aboriginal art in Australia has a 50,000 year history and is instantly recognizable in its use of dots, color, and pattern. M&S works with contemporary Aboriginal artists to bring their distinctive art to fabric (visit for more information). Below are photos of the first five bolts we've received!

We also have a panel and coordinating bolts from PB Textiles: Little Darlings

And, of course, more Christmas fabric, including Christmas Memories from Studio E

10" Squares of Yuletide, from Riley Blake, and a few coordinating bolts.

Also from Riley Blake, a set from Santa Claus Lane

and Warm Wishes from Maywood Studio. Plus some closer pictures of the adorable details of this panel & coordinates collection.
