As many of you have already heard, I will be retiring when our lease is up in August 2018.
Over the past 17 years I have made many friends and have enjoyed helping you create and
grow in our mutual love of quilting.  No one will miss River City Quilts more than I will. We
still have a few new fabrics coming in this fall, but not much after that.  Soooo…if you see
something you need or like please don’t wait…it might be gone the next time you come in.

We again will not be in the Quilt Minnesota shop hop due to our fabric being marked under
retail prices. (whatever that is!)  Please stop in to see us….we will have refreshments and
the now famous River City Quilts cookies!  We also have the sale starting July 24th you
won’t want to miss.  Happy Quilting!   Sally
