The new spring 2011 Better Homes & Gardens Quilt Sampler magazine is in the shop! This is one of those quilting magazines that I always look forward to. Especially because it brings back good memories of 2001, the year that Bear Patch was included in the Top Ten in the country!
I know that we have so many requests for this magazine, so we want you to know that it is now available. There are 10 new shops described and displayed for you. I like to use these magazines to help plan where I would like to stop on road trips and vacations. This time, I am excited to see Yellow Creek Quilt Designs included because I have just completed a quilt that they have designed and it is shown in one of the magazine photos! It is the quilt shown below draped over a display on the right. And it is offered as a class starting later this month right here in White Bear Lake. It would be fun to have you join us!
We always have to have a quick look at the list of shops to see if any other great Minnesota shops have been included, and once again, we are represented. This time it is Gathering Friends in Bird Island. Congrats to them! The picture below shows a bit of the interior of the old bank building that they occupy. They have done a great job of preserving a bit of history.
If you are needing the magazine and can't get your hands on a copy, just give us a call and it will be in the mail and in your hands before you know it!
