New Fabric

We received a nice assortment of batiks last week. Here are just some of them.


Row by Row . . . On The Go

Beginning this Wednesday, June 21, visit Cortez Quilt Company and other participating shops to receive a free pattern for a row in a quilt. We’ll also have kits available for our unique row pictured here – Highway 160. Combine your rows in any way to create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling to the stores. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows. Create a quilt using at least eight different 2017 rows from eight different 2017 participating shops. If you’re the first person to bring in your completed quilt you’ll win 25 fat quarters (6-1/4 yards of fabric). Use that shop’s row in your quilt and win a bonus prize. Row by Row runs from June 21 through September 5.


Upcoming Classes

Sewing Day: Little Quilt July
Thursday, June 22, 2017
10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Free, pattern required

We’re working our way through the year creating these adorable raw-edge applique wall hangings. Make them with or without the month at the bottom. These fit perfectly in the small wire stands. With the month added to the bottom the finished size is 12 x 16.  Join anytime . . . you can backtrack and make the earlier months or make them later as each month rolls around.

First Saturday Make & Take: Shower Caddy
Saturday, July 1, 2017
9:30 – 12:30 p.m.
$10, pattern required

The pattern is called “Shower Caddy” and, indeed, this would be a great little basket to carry to and from the shower when you’re at a camp site. But it would also make a great organizer for sewing notions, office items, or art supplies. We have the vinyl in every color available. Tricia will teach this fun “make & take” class.

"Motherhood was the great equalizer for me; I started to identify
with everybody . . . as a mother, you have that impulse to wish
that no child should ever be hurt, or abused, or go hungry, or
not have opportunities in life." ~ Annie Lennox
