Covid-19 Status
At Cotton & Chocolate we are aware of the latest restrictions in Southern California. We are continuing to stay open with a reduced capacity of 25 percent. This means we will be restricting the number of customers in our store at any given time to a maximum of 12, though we generally have less than 5 during most days. We can have up to 12 in our sewing center located behind our store.

We continue to sanitize our store each day and require masks for entry. We do appreciate your business, whether in-store or on-line. If desired, we do offer private shopping time by appointment and curbside pick-ups. Please call the store if you need more information at 805-371-3042.

Our new store location (380 E. Thousand Oaks Blvd in Thousand Oaks) is fantastic and we are really excited to share it with you. Click on the picture below to take a virtual tour.

What will you find inside? Lots of great new fabrics, notions, and fun new goodies just waiting for you!!!  We hope you love our new home as much as we do and we really look forward to seeing you soon.
As a note, if you cannot make it during our regular store hours or would like to visit without anyone else in the store, we can make arrangements for private shopping hours based on our staff availability. Please call the shop.  Our new phone number is 805-371-3042.
