  • I received the Crimson Sawtooth Bundle in the mail yesterday and the fabrics are gorgeous.  I want to thank you for the extra goodies you included.  They were such a nice surprise.  I am an Iowa girl and lived in Osage which about 30 miles from Mason City.  I took my parents to the Mayo cllinic several times during their lives.  I live in Texas now and hope to make a trip back there some day and would most definitely love to visit your shop.  Thank you again for your great service!  Gloria
  • Thank you so much for providing all the extra's for the bus shop hop we were on yesterday. Your store is beautiful with a remarkably friendly & educated staff.

  • Our group wishes to thank you for all your hospitality during our visit on June 1st for the All Iowa Shop Hop. We all enjoyed your shop and I am sure many of us will return to shop again! We appreciated the drinks and treats also. And especially a place to sit and enjoy them. We hope you will participate in the All Iowa Shop Hop again. Thanks again :) Susan  P.S. A group of 18 women can make for some chaos, but you handled it Great!!!!
  • Thanks for making us feel so welcome and having such a great shop. Betty
  • Thanks! I was on the quilt bus trip and must say really enjoyed your store. Again, thanks! Marcia
  • I was lucky enough to win the Jelly Roll which you gave as a prize after oour bus stopped at your shop in Decorah. Thank you very much it is very pretty. I am planning to use the pattern I purchased at your shop to use in a quilt. You have a really nice shop with all the samples and fabric. Shirley
  • Love your store, I try to visit when I come to the MN area. Caitlin
  • Thank you for your kindness and concern. I will always be a PineCone because your shop has continually been an inspiration to me, not only for the service and products you provide but also for the great friendship and warmth that everyone on your staff has shown from day one. Thanks, Carolyn
  • I had fun last night too! I was especially thrilled with the lesson that we had because I had decided that I am going to finish my Civil War (buck-a-block) quilt with setting my blocks on point after I add sashing to them so have been doing some “doodling” trying to figure out my triangle sizes! Now it will be “a piece of cake” with that new ruler!! I LOVE taking classes! :) :) Marilyn
  • I pass by 4 quilt shops to get to PNQS. I love Pine Needles!! JulieAnn
  • I received an early Christmas gift from one of my daughters ... a slate plaque which says "a bad day quilting is better than the best day at work". Working part time these past 9 months, I've lost time perfecting new quilting skill. Needless to say, I couldn't have said it better myself. Thank you PNQS for offering great stores and services. Linda
  • I just wanted to say that I read your new newsletter on my lunch hour and it is packed full of fun things for next year!! Wow, so many great options of things to do! It will be hard to decide………. :) I really like the direction that you are going for 2011! I think it will be a nice change and everyone who participates will learn more great ways to more fully use their awesome sewing machines. Thanks for everything you do to keep life interesting for all of us loyal Pinecones!! We really do appreciate it. Marilyn
  • Suzie and Marcia....I just heard about your generosity and kindness to a young gal from Osage that makes cancer bags. She was in your area and we have been told (my quilt guild) that you gave her a new Bernina. It never ceases to amaze me the generosity of folks from Iowa. Thank you for doing this for her...you deserve much praise! With a big pat on the back from me...Happy Holidays! Claudia
  • Please be assured of my loyalty to Pine Needles. Your customer service is outstanding and I’m making sure every quilter and sewer in the area knows it. I’ve progressed from a person that sews small pieces of fabric together to someone I refer to as a “virtual quilter.” Now, if I could find the time to actual get some projects started and done! Beth
  • Thank you so much for a wonderful workshop with the 830. I went into the experience expecting not to be that excited about the machine. The Cre8tive Workshop has put an 830 at the top of my wish list. Thank you for all the staff who worked so hard to make our experience so special, fun, relaxing---wow! Carolyn
  • I always knew fellow quilters were the kindest folks, always ready to help! Thank you again for your kindness.....Peggy
  • I wanted to send a note saying how great your staff at Racine are. I just had my first Series 8 class today, and Bob is so good explaining everything taking the time to show things that you aren't sure what to do. Teaching a bunch of ladies can't be easy sometimes, but he is a very patient man, and it really shows. I'm very happy with the class and can't wait to have the embroidery class next week. Bonnie is great also. Thanks again for having a great staff. Pat
  • Just wanted to tell you that I stopped in Racine (and bought some fabric, of course) on our way back from Rochester last week. This was the first time I was able to check it out. The shop is lovely! I will try to stop there again when I can. My husband is going through chemo at Mayo so sometimes we just have to hurry to get home. Incidentally, I felt better after walking around in the shop!!! It was therapeutic! Lynne
  • As always, an excellent newsletter and lots of exciting opportunities coming up. You do a great job of keeping things fresh with new products and ideas that should keep everyone interested. Thanks. Carolyn
  • I'm always impressed by all the information in the quarterly newsletter, but I have to tell you that I loved the feature article, Stitchin' with Suzie, six ways to use foot #6. The machines are so complex, and there's so much they can do that it's easy to forget or overlook some of the uses and features. Please keep more of these informational reminders coming. 8) Joan
  • I just wanted to say that after Saturday's Embroidery Block of the Month Class, I was so excited to get started on my project! Sue did a great job at the cutting table! I was one of the last people to have my fabric cut (from the class that day) and she was still smiling and very pleasant after cutting what must have been miles upon miles of fabric for everyone in class and the other customers that were there! And, I just love the new layout of the store! Each of the staff deserves kudos for making our class/shopping experience very pleasant. The flow of the business on Saturday was unbelievable! I never felt rushed, frustrated, or “in anyone’s way”. Thank you to all of you for what you do for all of us “Pine Cones”. We love coming back to you, because you always make things wonderful for us. Donna
  • Excellent newsletter! Beautifully done and a great resource. I know I will be rechecking it several times the next three months. I am going to be recruiting friends for the Hotel Winneshiek retreat! Carolyn
  • It was very nice meeting you in Racine the other day and to visit your very nice store. You made us feel welcomed and answered many questions for us. We made the 80 mile return trip home safely. Now to do some more sewing! Sincerely, Connie
  • Thank you so much for sending the pattern to me for the purse and the extra material. I do not want to bother you with crediting my account for the difference. I had such a fun time doing the ‘shop hop’ and stopping off at your shop. You were both so friendly and helpful and I am working on all my projects that I picked up at each shop I visited. As my cousin always says ‘Minnesota friendly’ I will be back next year to visit you. Thanks again, Becky
  • Just to let you know that I thoroughly enjoy the weekly newsletter. Keeps me on top of what is going on and enthused about which activities I may want to partake. In our busy lives, it is difficult to keep track of much more than a week ahead. The weekly reminder helps. Thanks for a great job. Carolyn
  • I was just at your store on Saturday with the Bag Ladies Shop Hop bunch from Eau Claire and I want to thank you a gazillion for the great time! Your store was my all-time favorite...and thanks a bunch for the wonderful food and gifts! We're planning (a couple of friends and I) to make another trip to your store before you close....and then to your new store in Decorah! Thanks again for the wonderful hospitality!!! You guys are awesome!!!! Jean
  • I want to thank you for the wonderful time I had in your shop on Saturday morning. You have a wide variety selection of fabric and wonderful staff. Thanks so much for the neat daisy bag with all the info. You are a top notch shop. Karalee
  • Love the look of the new newsletter. Keep up the great work. Deb
  • Very cute email!! Makes me wish I did not have so much fabric at home!! Gail
  • I always enjoy your emails. It gets me thinking I need to finish this or that or I’d like to take a class. Work seems to get in my way and I don’t get any farther. I did finally finish my Christmas Presents for 2007 so now I feel I can move on to some other projects. Barb
  • This is the first time I have attended your progressive sale. I was most impressed. I was there on Thursday and since things were so well marked, I bought a $6 packet of scraps. I did not realize there was going to be so much material in the zip lock bag. Thanks, that was certainly worth my $6. I came back on Sunday. Once again I was very impressed. With three cutting tables, I did not have to wait in line for long to have material cut. The ladies who were cutting material were very pleasant and yet professional. I must say even your customers were very pleasant. It was certainly a fun experience. Thanks to you and your staff for all the work you put in to have a successful sale. Happy 10th birthday. Nancy
  • Thank you so much for the prize I won at your anniversary celebration. I stopped on Saturday morning and chose a bag. What fun!! It had a book on using your sewing machine, one of your cookbooks, and a set of black and white fat quarters. All the gifts will be put to good use! I was looking through the cookbook today, and noticed that the recipes were just a little different from the ones in the cookbooks from the area where I grew up. I thought that it would be fun to try some new things... and then I turned the page and saw the recipe for Grandma's Angel Pie -- the same recipe that MY grandma used to make angel pie!! I remember enjoying it during the holidays in the 1960s!! I know that I'm going to have a great time with this cookbook. I'm so glad that you opened your store in Racine. I was first introduced to Pine Needles in Cresco and Jill when my son went to Luther College from 1997 - 2001. I made the side trip from Decorah to Cresco whenever I could! But, it is nice that you are a little closer, and I appreciate that you are open on Sundays sometimes. Thanks for the prize and congratulations on your anniversary! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! Teresa
  • I just got home from Eagle Bluff and wanted to THANK YOU for a fabulous weekend!!! What a treat to be away with no TV or phone or making meals... Thank you for all the goodies, you are so generous to your customers and we love you! See you soon in Racine! Take care, Lois
  • My husband and shopped at your Racine shop on Sunday. It was such a pleasant experience. He even commented on how nice the ladies were and so helpful. I have been there several times, and everyone is just so nice and helpful. It makes you glad to visit and spend your money. Thank you for the nice ladies at your Racine shop. Shelley
  • I was in store for the first time ever, and I have been to Cresco many times in the last 9 years, I am so upset that I have lost 9 years from my life. What a lovely shop! Everything was arranged very beautifully as well as organized so nicely. The sales staff were friendly and helpful and I didn't feel pressured to leave the store when I knew the clock was ticking close to 5:00 pm. I had an absolutely great experience with my mother at Pine Needles! Charlene
  • Hey! Just to let you know…nothing sews like a Bernina…EXCEPT…a New Bernina! Thanks for all the great service, discount cards (I have two now) and just being so nice. Sarah
