We are a quilt and fabric drop-off site for

Quilts from the Bluffs

How about a little Charity Therapy? We've partnered with Quilts from the Bluffs, our local quilt ministry, to add some quiltin' time to their efforts. They already meet on the 2nd Saturday of the month, but that just doesn't seem like enough so we've added a monthly meeting at Cut Up & Quilt!  

The group meets on the third Wednesday from 1:00-3:00.

The sessions will consist of cutting scrap fabric (provided) into 5” squares (charms), sewing the squares into quilt tops, and/or putting squares into quilt kits that can then be distributed to other quilters.  Bring rotary cutter/ruler/mat or sewing machine.  Quilts will be given to Project Linus (juvenile) or Mercy Hospital (adult).  
Put it on your calendar and help us help the community!

December, 2016

Each year, Lynn Doyle of Bloomin Minds designs a project with the spirit of giving as her purpose. This is the second year, we've joined Lynn in her efforts.  All proceeds from the sales of her "You've Got a Friend" pattern and kit sold through December 21st were donated to the Goodfellows.  The Iowa West Foundation matched the donation dollar-for-dollar. This year our contribution from this effort totaled over $2,400.  

While the holiday season is a time of great joy for most Americans, many families are struggling, often for reasons beyond their control. The Goodfellows’ goal is to serve as a bridge – a means of allowing area residents to demonstrate the real spirit of the season by sharing some of their bounty with those who have fallen on hard times.

Thanks to all who purchased a kit or pattern, making Christmas just a bit brighter for at least five families in the local area.  

Pantie Raid!

Thanks to our wonderful customers we were able to donate 7 pairs of pj's, 44 pairs of socks, and 121 pair of panties.  The Phoenix House was absolutely thrilled.  

January 15 -23, 2016

Quilt shops around the world are joining forces with quilters to collect panties, undies, socks, pjs and more for local women’s shelters. Drop off a new, store-packaged item in any participating shop and receive a fat quarter as a thank you for your generosity. 

Roseann Kermes, owner of Rosebud’s Cottage and originator of the annual Pantie Raid, found that shelters don’t always have what they need for women in crisis. "Women are the often the invisibles in domestic violence when they flee to a shelter. Everyone thinks about the kids and provides for them but so often the moms are the ones who need support. I think we all know how having nice undies always makes us feel better ... that's the feeling we should convey as we launch this year’s Pantie Raid.”
