News from Quilter's JEM for the week of 9/10/20

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

The Valley Shop Hop begins this Friday! There are six shops on the hop, all open 9am-5:30pm (though most shops, like ours, are closed on Sunday). We are combining the hop with a quilt show this year - each shop is hosting quilts by local quilters, and you get to vote for your favorite! Visit all six shops and receive a Steamfast Travel Steam Iron when you turn in your completed passport! (It is a really great little iron!)

(As you know, we are actually in East Grand Forks! The graphic has a typo.)

New fabric in the shop includes Summer Breeze

Winter Forest

We've started to build our collection of Maywood's Woolies, starting with some of the basic bolts shown below, and more coming soon!

12 bolts of Cherished Moments, from Australia's Poppie Cotton

Bernina News!
The new Bernina 790 E Plus Special Edition machines are here, they are gorgeous, and they are packed with features you will use over and over! Plus, free gifts!

Whatnots are coming!
Kim Diehl's 10th Whatnots club, using her new collection Gratitude and Grace, will be starting in January 2021! And, yes, Pam will be leading our Whatnots group! We'll be taking sign ups soon, too, and here are the fabrics and projects to tempt you!

Plus, this year Kim Diehl is also doing a Block of the Month! This program will also be starting in January 2021, and we'll be taking sign ups for this program, too!

The other exciting news is that we are now offering a few classes. To sew together safely, each class is limited to a maximum of 4 people (2 minimum). Any class that has a Group 1, 2, 3, etc means that the instructor is running an additional section.  Call 218-399-0159 to register for classes.

Classes are filling fast, but we are adding sessions as needed, and you can ask to be put on the waitlist. Call the shop, 218-399-0159, to get on a waitlist for additional sessions being offered for full classes.
