Three-Day Clearance Sale! - December 26th - 28th

First of all . . . Merry Christmas! We hope you are enjoying this wonderful winter holiday in whatever way you like to celebrate . . . with family and friends, entertaining, traveling, or taking a break from the festivities to enjoy some time at your sewing machine.

From all of us at Cortez Quilt Company, thank you for shopping with us during the past year. Your support has allowed us to continue to grow and be successful, and we appreciate all of our amazingly talented customers so much. We have lots of great events and classes planned for you in 2014, so stay tuned!

Now, on to the important news - we're having a Clearance Sale! The new year is right around the corner and that means it's time to make room for all the fabric we have on order. Also, we have to do inventory next week and the less we have to count the happier we'll be. So visit us this Thursday, Friday, or Saturday (and come early for the best selection!) and you'll find . . .

Many bolts of fabric marked down 20-30%

Select kits up to 30% off

Almost all of our baby and children's fabric will be at least 25% off (some even more!)

Christmas fabric 40% off

Clearance items marked down to rock bottom prices

Don't miss this sale!

Upcoming Classes

Toes in the Sand
SIX First Fridays: January 3, February 7,
March 7, April 4, May 2, June 6

January session 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
All subsequent sessions 1 – 5 p.m.

This series is only $20 with purchase of book, ruler, and fabric

Toes in the Sand uses the new, popular Hex N More ruler and we’re structuring this class sort of like a block of the month. The class will meet on the first Friday of each month for six months and during each session you’ll make two different blocks (two of each). At the end of the six months, you’ll have all of the blocks you need to assemble a beautiful 64″ x 84″ quilt that, depending on the fabrics you choose, can have either a traditional, modern, or elegant look. Cindy Dahl will teach this class.

Seasonal Silhouettes
Quarterly Series starting January 4
Subsequent dates are April 12, July 12, October 11
10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
$29 per class or take all four for $85

Make one, four, or all twelve of the beautiful wall hangings in this new, popular book. They’re done using raw edge applique and even if you’ve never done this technique, the January project is easy enough that you’ll sail right through it. Cindy Dahl will teach this series. See the samples Cindy has made at the shop. They’re darling!

Beginning Quilting
Two Wednesdays, January 8 & 15
9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
$45, plus supplies

Master the basics of quilting in this two session class. You’ll choose four fabrics and make a beautiful wall hanging or table runner. Learn how to measure, cut, piece, and press for a polished result. You’ll also learn stitch-in-the-ditch machine quilting and how to put on a binding the professional way. This class will give you the skills and confidence you need to become an accomplished quilter. Class taught by Karen. Students must know the basics of how to use their sewing machine (thread needle, load bobbin, adjust tension and stitch length).

Sewing Room Furniture Special is Ongoing Through Year-End!

Is new sewing room furniture on your wish list? If so,  you can sweeten the gift by making your purchase before the end of the year. Take home a Tailormade Quilter's Vision Sewing Table and Companion Chest and you'll take home a one-year Class Club membership right along with it. Purchase the slightly smaller Eclipse sewing table and enjoy a Gingher rotary cutter as our gift to you. Buy one of the fabulous, functional Cutting Tables and your bonus present will be new pair of Gingher 8" shears. Just think of what you'll create with your new tools! Visit this page on the CQC website to for more information and photos of all of the Tailormade pieces. Remember, this special offer is good through the end of the year only, so act fast!
