Bit O' Bliss Block of The Month
Welcome to our new block of the month, "Bit O' Bliss" created by Pearl Louise Designs and made by Cheri Miller at Cotton & Chocolate. This fun design features all of the things that create "bliss" in our lives ... friends, a bubble bath, tea, cupcakes and more! This quilt finishes to approximately 59" x 60" and is mostly applique with some piecing. It also has some fun rickrack elements with 3-D flowers and yo-yo flowers.
The BOM program includes the patterns with full-size applique templates plus fabrics for top, borders, binding, rickrack, and floss. Fabrics will be exactly as shown in the photo that we include with the kit (which is not the photo of the original pattern). Each month includes the pattern and fabric needed to complete that month.
Our program begins in April 2016 and runs for 12 months, ending in March 2017.
Cost if paying monthly is $19.00 plus tax (for a total of $228.00 plus tax). If paid in full at the start of the program the price is $221.00 plus tax. BOM kits are available for pick-up at the shop each month. If shipped, the added cost is $5.00 per month.
Interested? Contact the shop directly either in person or by calling 805-241-0061 during normal store house.

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 birthday to you and thanks for being loyal Cotton & Chocolate customers!
