Demo Day This Thursday!

Join us this Thursday, September 19, at 12:30 p.m. for our regular Third Thursday Demo. This month, we're focusing on accuracy. Cyndi, Cindy, and Karen will offer many tips and demonstrate techniques on measuring, cutting, marking, stitching, and pressing that you can use to ensure satisfaction with your projects. Don't miss this informative demo day! Bring your lunch if you'd like, and your sewing machine if you'd like to stay after the demo to sew. No reservation needed. Demo Day events are always free.

New fabric . . . and much more on the way!

This bold collection just arrived. We'll have a sample quilt made from it up in the shop soon. We had a flurry of fabric reps visiting last week and ordered lots and lots (and lots!) of new fabric that will trickle in over the coming weeks and months.

Featured Kit - Purchase Online or at CQC

Hole in the Wall

Make this bold, beautiful jewel-tone quilt using an Eleanor Burns pattern called Hole in the Wall. The blocks are large and the top goes together very quickly. Finished size is 56″ x 68″ (nice sized throw) and the kit includes everything except the backing fabric. Order securely online or purchase in the shop where you can also see the sample.
