We want to again thank you for your patience as we continue to work to improve this newsletter and our website as we combine the two stores. We have tentatively come up with a plan, and are working with our web host to complete the process. We would love to hear any ideas that you may have to combine everything as well. Please email Aimee @ aimee@cortezquiltcompany.com, or call us:
Aimee @ 970-565-7541

For this newsletter, you will find info for Cortez Quilt Company on the top half, and Quilted Corners on the bottom half. (Cortez comes before Quilted, alphabetically. Ha, Ha!) We would love to have everyone join in at both stores... we are now one big & happy family!

I am a Durango,Colorado native.  I started quilting in the summer of 1988. My first quilt design was published in 1990. I have quilts published in a variety of books. I wrote my own quilting book, Children’s Zoo. I have a couple of patterns published and I am working on several more. Hopefully to be published soon. I graduated from Durango High School and Fort Lewis College with an Elementary Education degree. I taught PE and kindergarten for 4 years. I worked and managed Animas Quilts for 12 years. I worked at First National Bank for 18 1/2 years. Now I am an office manager for a Naturopathic doctor. I have put together the Four Corners Quilt Gathering since 2003 and we are looking forward to having Cindy Needham come this year in April. I love to quilt and am so lucky to have found Jackie Robinson and Animas Quilts.
