Welcome To Cotton & ChocolateWelcome to Cotton & Chocolate Quilt Company! Featured in the Spring 2012 Quilt Sampler magazine as a North American top-10 shop, we are a full-service quilt store that serves our local quilting community with fabric, books, patterns, notions, classes, and clubs. Our store maintains over 4000 bolts from all major suppliers with large selections of solids, batiks, reproductions, and novelty, as well major lines from Moda, RJR and Westminster (Kaffe Fassett). Our pattern company, Hot Chocolate Press features a large array of English Paper Piecing patterns, a monthly “Pattern Party” series of easy-to-piece low cost patterns and other creative patterns from our staff. These are available both as retail or wholesale. Look for us at regional quilt shows, too!

Class Registration Form: Click here Class Registration Starts Saturday, Dec. 9th If my math is correct, and it usually is, this will be our 54th Newsletter and Class Schedule. Ever since we opened in August of 2004, we have consistently put out a packed class schedule every four months. This one is no different! In a hurry, click here, but be sure to come back and read the rest of the email.One of the biggest changes since we opened is how we deliver our class schedules to our customers. When we started, we only mailed them via the post office. Then we started adding them to our website and emails. Now we only send them by email. Besides, isn't better when you can get the color version? We'll still have copies available in the store. Pick one up on your next visit.Another recent change is that we now have our class schedule integrated with our website and you can register for classes directly on-line without having to come into the shop. On-line registration starts Sunday, December 11th, one day after in-store registration begins. This means our initial priority is given to those who come into the shop on the first registration day, Saturday, December 10th. Note that you can still call the store on the Saturday to register by phone, but again priority will be given to initial walk-ins first before processing any phone registrations.Important note: The 2017 Saturday Sampler Program will only be available on Saturday, December 9th, with priority given to walk-ins over phone registration. See Page 3 of the class schedule for more information.While we are releasing the class schedule to you now, please be patient while we transfer the class information onto the website. You should see the classes being added over the next several days. They will show on the on-line calendar, but will you will not be able to add them to your cart until Sunday, December 10th. Note that the on-line calendar initially shows only classes for the next 3 months. You must browse the calendar to see classes in months further out in the year.To get started reading this Newsletter and Class Schedule, click here.
