Just because we are not posting here weekly, it doesn't mean there is nothing going on at Cotton & Chocolate. Every week there are awesome clubs and classes. Every day, there is new, beautiful fabric arriving. Our recommendation is that you make a point to come by on a regular basis and check it out. Read on to see what I'm talking about.

We got a new Mettler thread rack last month and it has lots of new colors as well as an expanded number of the larger spools.

March Classes

In addition to great fabrics coming every day, we have a number of classes that are looking for wonderful new students. Last month I took Lauren's Bargello Heart class and had a great time. The top center is complete and a picture will be forthcoming as soon as I complete the borders. But just in case you think I've been slacking, here is a picture of the paper piecing quilt top I recently completed (well, there is still some applique accents to add). The Judy Niemeyer pattern is called Misty Mountain Pond.

Now March is my favorite month as my birthday is in it (the 12th in case you were wondering). Note to Marilyn: Only 13 shopping days left! And I don't want to hear about your 6-month birthday event on March 3rd.

Take a look at these samples, and then check your schedule!
Andrea Gardiner is a wonderful teacher and has 3 great classes coming up in March.

Birthday Program

You may or may not remember this, but we give our customers a big 20% discount on fabric as our birthday gift to you. All you have to do is have your name in our computer and come in within 6 days of your birthday (either before, on or after).  Your birthday discount is on your entire fabric purchase, but can only be given once each year.

Now unlike my wife, I am not so good at remembering things. So to help you remember this wonderful gift, we want to send you a reminder postcard in the mail.  This is where you come in. We need your address and birthday. Next time you come into the shop, be sure to have the staff update your profile to include your correct address and birth date. Optionally, you can send us an email using our Contact Us page with the details and I'll be happy to update your profile. Remember to give me your name as well because your clever email addresses don't always translate into your name (right avidQuilter@gmail.com?). Oh, and don't send me your birth year (I'm really not interested - I've been married for 32 years).

As a bonus, each month we will be drawing one name from all of our customers (with birthdays) and sending them a $25 gift certificate. The sooner we have your information, the better the odds of you winning!

Happy anniversary to us and happy birthday to you and thanks for being loyal Cotton & Chocolate customers!
