Now is certainly the time to let Santa know what Bernina Sewing Machine and Accessories you have on your list. Look below for great deals all season long!

Swiss engineering and an all metal frame go into this lightweight, entry-level machine, which guarantees that your love of sewing will be passed down for generations. Shop Cortez Quilt and More for affordable quality rather than the frustration and disposability found at big box stores.

We only have one B 770 Anniversary Edition in stock, and can't get any more!

We have one 880 Anniversary Edition, and one 790 Anniversary Edition in our store. There are no guarantees that more can be ordered, as stock is at this first come. Don't delay if you have your eye on one of these models, and the great gift package that it comes with.


BERNINA’s practical Magnifying lens set sharpens your view of the work area. The set contains three magnifying lenses of different strengths, enabling you to choose the most suitable magnification for the project at hand.

The lenses provide an optimum view when threading, and magnify the stitching area. This is especially helpful for precision sewing in tricky places. The magnifying lenses also make lighter work of embroidery, sparing your eyes and reducing fatigue. The Magnifying lens set also features a bracket (sold separately) for simple mounting to the sewing machine.

The Multiple spool holder can be mounted almost effortlessly on a wide range of sewing machines, and can also be switched between two machines with the greatest of ease. The holder has room for up to 15 spools, enabling quick access to threads of different colors. If need be, removing individual spool pins from the multiple spool holder creates room for larger spools as well as thread cones, enabling you to execute your sewing, embroidery and quilting projects more efficiently.

Quick access to a wide range of spools of different colors is a real time saver when working on multicolored embroidery designs.

Also, the multiple spool holder’s telescopic thread guide can be adjusted upwards: the thread has a longer path to the needle, allowing difficult threads like metallics to untangle and flow freely before they reach the start of the sewing process.


We are giving away a BERNINA 535! The drawing will be held December 22. There are a lot of ways to enter to win!

Cortez Quilt Company and More is excited to join forces with The Fabric Shop Network, who is proud to be a national sponsor of National Tie One on Day. On the day before Thanksgiving, women across the country will be celebrating the day by wrapping a loaf of bread, a pie, or another dessert in an apron, tucking a prayer or a note of encouragement in the pocket, and then delivering the bundle to someone in need of physical or spiritual sustenance—or both. What could be nicer than receiving such a gift—and handmade at that?

National Tie One On Day is the perfect opportunity for
quilt and fabric shops to join in on a national charitable activity. It’s a great way to encourage customers to put a little give into Thanksgiving by reaching out to share their skills with someone who could use a kind word, a pat on the back, and a tasty treat for Thanksgiving.

Sew An Apron For “Tie One On Day”
Thursday, November 15
9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

We are so excited to be a part of this national program to bring a little cheer to someone by sewing them an apron, and then wrapping a loaf of bread, a pie, or some other dessert in it. Come sew your gift for your special recipient. If you know someone in our quilting community that could especially use some cheer, please call Cortez Quilt Company and More to put them on our list. We will then help deliver these gifts the day before Thanksgiving. For more info, be sure to call us!

Update: Battle Rock 4H Club has joined in on this project. They will be helping provide desserts to be delivered with the aprons. Please call us to let us know if you plan to bring an apron, or to participate in the sew along classes. Also call now if you know of someone who we could deliver to.



One of the most frequent questions this past summer was "Will the Super Snips pass security at an airport?" I decided to test this on our trip to Houston. My carry-on was chosen to be individually screened by hand on the way, and went through the scanner on the way back. It passed both types of security - so I feel fairly safe to say that yes, these snips do pass security!

Our Shortcut Binding tool is used to cut your strips and help you to join the end of your binding together. Have fun with this binding method and NO MORE HAND STITCHING!!
