Row by Row 2015

This is our Row by Row, Hooked on Fabric! Only one month left for Row by Row 2015 (hard to believe).  We have patterns, kits, and license plates available - we look forward to seeing you before it is all over!

We have decided to host a Row by Row Viewers Choice Exhibit October 15 to 25, 2015.  Your quilt must be 8 rows, quilted, bound and labeled.  Even though we have already had one winner, we will let our customers select another.  So finish your Row by Row Quilts!

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.

Mary's Notes

We completed our Fall Class Calendar and had great success at our Open House to register for fall classes.  We will continue to update the photographs and class supply lists online, but you will find a printable Fall Calendar here.  Our next Beginning Quiltmaking class begins Thursday, September 10 and continues through October 8.  We  rescheduled the Intermediate Quiltmaking class to begin Monday, October 5 to continue through November 2.  Other classes include Creating Quilts from Panels, Curved Piecing, Foundation Piecing, Twister Wreath, Give it a Whirl and One Block Wonder. Marilyn will walk you through the process of the Professional Tote.  Join Jill to make the Swirly Girl Apron with or without embroidery.   Other Machine Embroidery classes include Christmas Alphabet and Welcome Banner.  Venitta McCall will lead our Software Inspirations  - Applique Three Ways, Going in Circles and Digitize a Logo.  She will also offer Cameo Exploration, Quilting in the Hoop and Digitize 'Your' Logo, a follow-up to her morning Software Inspirations program.  Mary Wayland will introduce you to Free-Motion Quilting and Long-Arm Quilting.  Janis will continue with Serger Mastery and I will continue with Machine Mastery classes.

We have wonderful new projects, books, patterns and fabrics coming this fall that have not yet arrived, so we decided to host another Open House and update the class calendar for November and December.  Plan to attend Saturday, October 17, 2015.
