Upcoming events

After Market Review – Wednesday, June 4
5:00 – 6:15 p.m.
Karen is back from Spring Market! Join us for an After Market Review on Wednesday, June 4 at 5 p.m. We’ll have show and tell, refreshments, and you can weigh in on what new merchandise you’d like to see in the shop. This event is free but space is limited so call the shop today to sign up.

Sewing Sunday – June 29
12 noon – 5 p.m.
Our occasional Sewing Sunday events have become quite popular. They’re relaxing and fun and everyone accomplishes so much in just a few hours without the distractions of home! Bring any project you’re working on (or a UFO that you really want to finish!) and meet other sewers/quilters. Come after church or after you finish your morning chores at home. Take an afternoon just for you! Sewing Sundays are always free but space is limited so reserve your spot soon. We provide light refreshments.

Clearance the Clearance Sale!

We have so much new fabric arriving (not to mention all kinds of fun merchandise that Karen found at Spring Quilt Market) that we're running out of space. This means our customers win with a Clearance the Clearance Sale. Take an extra 20% off of anything in our clearance area through Saturday, May 24. Hurry in for the best selection!

Pattern writing contest

It's not too late to jump in and join our pattern writing contest. Stop by the shop to pick up your entry form or e-mail info@cortezquiltcompany.com to request a copy. Check out contest rules and details at www.cortezquiltcompany.com.

 

We will be closed on Monday, May 26 in honor of Memorial Day.

New fabric

Another soft, beautiful collection arrived this week that includes a nice border print.

 

Yes, we know it's not even officially summer yet, but our 2014 Halloween collection arrived on Monday. There is also an adorable PANEL that goes with this collection. Stop by the shop to check it out and get started on those holiday projects.

Upcoming Classes

1600″ Strip Quilt
Friday, May 23

You can make this quilt top in an afternoon . . . we’re not kidding! Use a jelly roll and in no time you’ll have the top made for a full-sized quilt. These are so much fun to make because they don’t tax your brain. You can sew and talk and have a good time and go home with a beautiful finished product. Cyndi Foote will teach this class.
