Well . . . we knew what we meant but some readers did not. See the clarification about this event in red below. Sorry for the confusion!


Win Your Dream Quilt: Tuesday, October 25

How does winning TEN YARDS of fabric sound?
How about having fun with other quilters at the same time?

Join us on Tuesday, October 25 when we'll open the shop doors at precisely 6:15 p.m. You'll then have exactly 20 minutes to choose 3-5 bolts of fabric to make your dream quilt. CLARIFICATION: You do NOT need to buy the fabric you pick out. You can if you'd like, but there is no obligation to purchase. You are just picking out what you hope to win. 

One lucky winner will take home ten yards of fabric from the bolts they selected. We're not revealing how the winner will be chosen until the event, but we will say it won't be by random drawing.

We'll also have a couple of specials running during this event, and we'll give a way a few door prizes to add to the excitement.

Intrigued? Call 970-565-7541 to RSVP. This event is limited to the first 20 people who sign up, so don't delay! Adults only please. Must be 21 to win.

Many thanks to Judith Swain for coming up with this great idea.


Third Thursday Demo Tomorrow: Design Your Own Quilts

Thursday, October 20, 2016 at 12:30 p.m.

Join us for our October Third Thursday demo when Karen will show you how to use Electric Quilt to design your own quilts. The software is easy to use once you know a few tricks, and it’s available for PCs and Macs. You’ll learn how to scan and import fabric swatches and then design a quilt that’s the size you need to use up what you have in your stash. We’ll have the big screen TV out for the demo. If you already have EQ7 bring your laptop and follow along. Otherwise, watch and find out what this powerful tool will do for your creativity.

NOTE: There will be NO demo on Saturday, 10/22, as previously planned. 


As always, thank you for supporting Cortez Quilt Company . . . your local independent quilt shop.
