Message from Aimee

Thank you so much for such a warm reception as the Cortez Quilt Company goes through this transition. I am so excited for 2018 - we are going to have a great year!

I wanted to take the time to answer the most common questions. Of course we still plan to have great customer service, and look forward to working with you. Yes, we will still have BERNINAS and a service department. Yes, you will still be able to use your CAD cards. And most important . . . yes, your points will carry over. 

Looking forward into 2018 - I really don't plan on making any major changes. Karen has built a wonderful business. As they say, "If it is not broke, don't fix it." I do have some new ideas and plans that I will be sharing and implementing throughout the coming year.

Please stop by and say hi. We would love to hear your input of what you would like to see in the store. 



New Fabric

Colors in this new fabric collection feature a calming palette :deep sea blues, mossy greens, creams, and coral accents. We can't wait to see what you create - this fabric will be lovely in anything from quilts to bags to home decor.
