September Events

Beginner’s Reunion – Saturday, September 6, 10 a.m. – 12 noon

This special Saturday morning event is for everyone who has taken Beginning Quilting at Cortez Quilt Company since we opened three years ago. Bring projects you have made since you started quilting for show and tell, or just come and enjoy seeing what others have done. We’ll present a short video on how fabric is made (courtesy of Cotton + Steel, a new fabric company), have demos, door prizes, and everyone who attends will receive a free pattern. Sign up for this fun event today by calling 970-565-7541.

Sewing Sunday – September 14, 12 noon – 5 p.m.

Spend a relaxing afternoon sewing at the shop. Bring a project you have in the works or start something new. Sewing Sunday is always free and snacks are provided. Space is limited, so sign up today.

Third Thursday Demo – September 18, 12:30 p.m.
NOTE: No Third Thursday Demo in August (it's set-up day at the DMQ show)

Our Third Thursday Demo for September will be on how to use Electric Quilt 7 software to design your own quilts. If you are already a user, please join us and share your tips and tricks. If you've never used this software you’ll be amazed by how intuitive and easy it is to use. Third Thursday Demos are always free. Join us!

Mystery Quilt – The Big Reveal, Saturday, September 27, 9 – 10 a.m.

We have a large group of customers wrapping up our most recent Mystery Quilt program. We hope you’ll all come on Saturday morning, September 27, to share your finished quilt. Like last time, those who attend and sign up for the next Mystery Quilt will receive 10% off fabric for their next project (you must sign up and purchase your fabric on the day of The Big Reveal).  If you didn't participate in the most recent Mystery Quilt you can still join us on September 27 to ohh and ahh over the beautiful quilts and sign up for the next one. Refreshments provided, so please RSVP.


NEW . . . Placemat Club!

We're kicking off our new monthly Placemat Club on Tuesday, September 16. Each month (third Tuesday) we’ll choose a different pattern and make placemats which, as we all know, are a great way to brighten any table. And they make wonderful gifts. This month we’re making “Table Toppings” (shown here). The pattern also includes a table runner and table topper. Judy Bryan will host our Placemat Club in September.

fun classes we have on the schedule!
