Cortez Quilt Company and More will be at the Quilt Show in Farmington this weekend - be sure to stop by and say hello!


Super Saturday
October 13

For one day only, BERNINA is offering 72 month financing for purchases of $5000 or more! That is 72 months of 0% interest folks (with approved credit)!


We will be featuring the 770 Anniversary Edition, which comes with the free gifts with purchase... a value of over $2,300! We will only have one of these machines to sell - if you have your eye on this machine you better come early!



One of the great aspects of purchasing a BERNINA from Cortez Quilt Company and More is that customers receive a set of classes that ensure that they will become knowledgeable about, and proficient with their machine. If you have previously taken mastery classes at Cortez Quilt Company, or elsewhere, and feel as though you don't understand your machine completely and confidently, feel free to sign up for our newly redesigned mastery classes. These classes are split up over the course of several days to ensure that you do not get overwhelmed with everything these amazing machines are capable of. These classes will vary on days and times from one month to the next so that they will accommodate virtually any schedule. You will need to bring in your machine for these classes. The best part of all (as if becoming a BERNINA master isn't incredible enough) is that these classes are free of charge! If you purchased your machine from us, you will never be charged for a mastery class. If you purchased your machine elsewhere and you coordinate with an already scheduled class, then there is no charge for you, either! Please call to reserve your spot.

Angelina Fibers

Angelina Fiber is heat bondable – it bonds when heat and pressure are applied. Place it between two sheets of paper towels or pressing sheets, iron on silk setting for 3 seconds and it becomes a shiny sheet of polyester fabric that can be stamped, stitched, glued, bonded, embellished . . . the possibilities are truly endless! And, it’s machine washable!This is a perfect product for your art and landscape quilts.

 Attention Kansas Troubles Lovers ~ here are fabrics from the newest collection! Beautiful, just as we have come to expect. We also have 10-inch and 5-inch precuts in stock.

As this time of year approaches quickly, we would like to have a plan in place. We have several customers who are going through chemotherapy, or have weakened immune systems.

Every winter, we have customers who are sick and take the day off, but come in to the store to grab what they need. (Don't worry, we don't tell!)  This year, please call us. We will gather what you need, and deliver to you. Please help us out in this effort.
