- Two Great Ways To Help Others In June


Have you ever wanted to learn to sew? Now is your chance! We are participating in a nationwide initiative to teach people how to sew. It is a 6 week program (you can attend whichever classes you want). Our first class is on June 14, from 6 pm - 8:30 pm. There is a $5 fee/class and any additional supplies will be available for under $20 each class. We have sewing machines that you can use during your class. Check out our main class page to see all six weeks of projects.Click Here To See All Six Projects. Please call 970-565-7541 or come by to sign up!


New Fabric


Looking for a fabric that has a more masculine feel, or that special addition to your latest landscape quilt? These batiks arrived late last week, and each of them have a great textured look.

Needing a fun and cheerful fabric?
This should fit the bill, and would make a great gift for that special friend. Home decor, placemats, and T-towels are the first projects that come to mind.



If a big, bold banner style quilt is your cup of tea you will love this rooster panel. Designed to go with the chicken themed fabric from last week's newsletter. A wall hanging from this will look stunning in your kitchen or dining area.

Great Causes

Many families in our area receive free/reduced breakfasts for their children during the school year. The Good Samaritan Center Food Pantry is sponsoring a Cereal Drive to fill this need during the summer months.

Cortez Quilt Company employees have been participating in the Cereal Drive, and would like to invite you to join in with us. Please bring your boxes of cereal into CQC from now until Friday, June 15th. We can all help kids start off the day right!


Quilters, Crocheters, Knitters and Semstresses Unite!
Do you have a homemade quilt, afghan or blanket to donate to a child receiving support from the Four Corners Child Advocacy Center? Help us reach our 2nd quarter goal by dropping off your blankets and filling out a donation form on June 25th. Last year the Advocacy Center donated 400 blankets to youth in our area. Not only do they need quilts, they also are able to receive grant money that matches the hours a volunteer spends making the donated project. Grab a muffin and be entered into a drawing for a nice prize. Your volunteer hours mean the world to them. Please call 970-565-8155 for more info.
