Shop Hop!

Hi all,
This Thursday & Friday, April 29th and 30th from 9 AM to 9 PM, and Saturday, May 1 from 9 AM to 5 PM, Treadle Yard Goods is making their first appearance in the annual Twin Cities Quilt Shop Tour.

We’re joining 9 other shops to say the Twin Cities Really Cooks!

Each store will hand out a free 9” quilt block pattern, along with favorite recipe handouts!

In addition, each shop has designed a creative layout for the quilt blocks using fabric that represents their shop.

Because we are primarily a fashion fabric store, the lovely Anne used silk shantung to create our display quilt, and it is a thing of beauty!

Layout patterns and optional fabric kits will be available for purchase.

There are 5 Grand Prizes – 4 sewing machines donated by Valley West Sewing, A1 Sewcraft, Bear Patch Quilting Co, and The Sampler plus a Gift Certificate bundle ($50.00 to spend at each shop)

There are also 10 Second Prizes - each shop will contribute a unique gift basket at a $200.00 value!

Visit all 10 shops to qualify for these great prizes!

The participating shops are Bear Patch Quilting Co, Blue Bamboo, Calla Lily Quilt Shop, Fabric Town, Glad Creations Quilt Block, Quilt Cove, Rosebud’s Cottage, The Sampler, Silver Lane Quilting and Treadle Yard Goods.

We have some beautiful quilts on display for the occasion. We have two that came to us courtesy of Michael Miller, one by our talented customer Marilyn Ampe, who dyed the fabric herself, and the masterpiece that Anne and Melissa collaborated on, made with our wonderful selection of silk shantung.
We'd love to see you there!


  1. Please don't become a quilt shop! No matter what fabrics are used, they all look the same.

    Thanks for the comment.
    While we enjoy spotlighting the work of our friends in the quilting community, we will remain, first , last and always, a fashion fabric store.
