Quilted Corners Farmington Update

We know everybody is anxious for us to reopen, and we greatly appreciate seeing the faces of all of our friends who stop in to see us every Tuesday when we are down getting setup. We had every intention of reopening this coming Tuesday, July 14, have completely prepped the store for reopening, have begun stocking fabric, notions, embroidery designs, patterns, batting, machines, and all of the other quilt store goodies.

However, with New Mexico’s current tighter restrictions on business and travel, we will need to push that reopening date back even further. We understand everybody’s disappointment and can assure you that having to put our dreams on hold after working so hard to put them into motion is heartbreaking for us. Nevertheless, we do not give up easily and are determined to reopen as soon as we can do so in a practical and safe manner. In the meantime, we will continue to have new fabrics arriving, thread collections are being delivered, and machines are in stock, so we are preparing to meet all of your quilting needs once we finally do roll out the welcome mat.

In the meantime, we will continue to be available every Tuesday for machine service drop-off and pickup. We can also deliver any orders, feel free to call us in Cortez to let us know what you need.

Most importantly, thank you all for your encouragement and support! We could not continue to work towards the fulfillment of this dream if it wasn’t for all of you ladies calling, texting, emailing, and stopping in sharing your love with us.

Todd is available to meet any of your needs. Feel free to call or text Todd at 505-215-3987 or email him at [email protected]

Sometimes you need more tension on the bobbin thread than usual for embroidery, free-motion sewing, or free-motion quilting. And that’s why you need the golden-yellow bobbin case.
