Do You Wooly Block?

Just 1 more week for Wooly Block!  Similar to Row by Row, but for wool enthusiasts and wool shops only.  As you know COTTONWOOD has offered wool since the beginning for primitive quilts, penny rugs and rug hooking.  And we now carry wool in lots of bright colors.  It is exciting to have an event to support and encourage the use of wool.  Wooly Block began Saturday, October 15 and ends this Thursday, December 15, 2016.  "Fun in the Snow" patterns are free.  Kit purchasers will have a choice of colors - primitive or bright.

COTTONWOOD is Charlottesville's authorized BERNINA dealer.  We are happy to be part of the BERNINA of America family and we want you to be a part of our family too.

At COTTONWOOD, we offer the full line of BERNINA sergers, sewing and embroidery machines, as well as software, accessories, classes and an on-site technician.  Additionally, we offer the finest machine mastery classes to help our customers improve their sewing skills and make the most of their BERNINA experience.
