I, for one, am excited that Spring is here. And from what I have heard in the shop lately, most of you are too. Spring is a time for refreshing, renewing and, as my Mother would say - spring cleaning. I plan to accomplish all those goals at COTTONWOOD this spring. We will be refreshing the shop and completing our renovation plans that were put on hold during Covid; we have just renewed our original hours - Monday through Saturday 10am - 6pm and Sunday 12noon to 4pm; we are renewing our classes and adding to them daily as our teachers get vaccinated and return to the classroom. BERNINA Machine Mastery Classes, BERNINA Community Studio Clubs for Designer Software and Designworks have started, Embroidery and the new Quilting club are scheduled; and, the new Sewing and Overlock Clubs are being scheduled. These clubs help you keep growing and learning more about your BERNINA toys. The clubs are more technique and project based than the Mastery Classes.
BERNINA Mastery Classes - More classes are on the website, but these are the next few coming up.

Marilyn is starting a class/club for the paper piecing enthusiasts out there. She is using the book Paper Piecing All Year Round for all sessions. Come for one class to learn the technique or join for the year and enjoy the comradery of other paper piecers. And speaking of Spring, check out The Leah Collection, a breath of spring in itself. Marilyn is using this line of fabric for 2 classes, The Leah Quilt and the Leah Kaleidoscope Quilt. You may purchase our kit or select your own fabric for these classes. You can see what is currently scheduled here.
You must register. Space is limited for all classes and sew-ins, so please register early. Classes will be cancelled if a minimum number of students have not registered and you will be notified. We are taking your temperature and you must wear a mask in class and in the shop.
Finishing our renovation plans means cleaning all the back of the store spaces and rearranging them, so stay tuned for our Spring Cleaning Sale to follow later this Spring.
Enjoy the extra daylight and happy stitching.
Hope to see you at COTTONWOOD,
