Quilting at COTTONWOOD
What's new in quilting? Come to COTTONWOOD
to see and feel the latest fabrics from your favorite companies and designers such as Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts; Three Sisters, Barbara Brackman, Brannock and Patek, Minnick and Simpson, Blackbird Designs all of Moda; Jo Morton for Andover; Red Crinoline Quilts, formerly Bonnie Blue Quilts, from Marcus Brothers just to name a few of my favorites. We currently have over 500 bolts of batiks from Hoffman, Benartex, Timeless Treasures, Anthology and Moda to name a few.
Over our 18 year history, I have tried to maintain our humble beginnings' favorites - homespun, flannel and wool, while adding in the modern fabrics desired by todays new quilters. Such collections by designers Aneela Hoey, V and Co., Riley Blake, Me & My Sister Designs, are bright, fresh and ecletic appealing to the youth in all of us. New collections arrive almost daily.
Holiday fabrics have started arriving and we are just looking for space to put them out for you. We are repackaging our Little Bolts - bolt ends, to help make room for all the new arrivals. Check in often to see what's come in!
Our staff is passionate about their quilting as is evidenced by the over 200 quilts, totes, aprons and other items on display in the shop. Whether you want to make something you see or create you own design, we are here to assist you with fabric selection, yardage amounts, techniques and tools.
Most of the quilt kits offered in the shop have been made by one of the staff members prior to packaging, so we are confident that that the yardages are correct. A few of our kits, Collections for a Cause, for instance, come to us pre-packaged by Moda, but our staff members have made the quilt confirming that the contents are accurate.
Remember when we cut our quilt pieces with scissors and then along came the rotary cutter. Magic! And now we are using a Accucut GO! and a GO!Baby. Want to give them a try - come in for a demonstraion or check out our GO! and Sew classes.
