Solve the Mystery!

Another mystery quilt is in the works!  The sleuthing will begin on Tuesday November 20.  How it works:

  • Come by Cotton Weeds for a supply list.  The mystery class is FREE, but you must purchase the fabric for the quilt top here at Cotton Weeds.
  • Each month you will receive a clue (instructions for cutting and piecing).  Join us for some mysterious fun on the third Tuesday of the month from 6 – 8pm, or just pick up your clue at Cotton Weeds anytime after the third Tuesday.
  • The mystery will run for 6 months (there are 6 clues), Nov. 2018 – April 2019.

Fall Classes are in Full Swing!

Join us at Cotton Weeds for a class or two!  Our full class schedule is listed on our Classes page.  Next up is Working with Wool on Saturday, Dec. 8 from 9am – noon.  Heather will show you the basics of wool applique: fusing your design on, blanket stitching the edges, thread choice, and more!
