What's New @ Cut Up & Quilt!

In the Midst of Summer @ Cut Up & Quilt! 

We seem to be in the dog days of summer as it has been hot and humid. Some of us don't like that combination, so what better time to piece up a quilt or work on those unfinished projects! Better yet, get inspired at the first ever, Get Creative Mini Expo at the Marriott Regency in Omaha.  

Friday, July 21st  9:00 am - 7:00 pm
Marriott Regency
10220 Regency Circle

Pre-event price is $10*
$15.00* at the door
*Kim Kight of Cotton + Steel is a separate ticketed event from 5:30-8:00pm

What is it all about?  Well, it's not a quilt show, it's not a craft show; it is a venue to discover all kinds of fun for your creative outlet.  
     Creative classes
     Shop vendors (that would be us!)
     Kids zone
     Hands-on charity project for children with cancer
     Prize drawings,
     Selfie booth
     Happy hour from 3 - 7pm won't want to miss special guest, Kim Kight of Cotton + Steel. It seems there is something for all; you won't want to miss it!    

 No CUAQ Therapy in July!

CUAQ Therapy is cancelled in July due to our participation in the Get Creative Mini Expo.  Stop by and see us at the expo on Friday! 

CUAQ Therapy will resume it's normal schedule on August 17th.

Denniele Bohannon of Louanna Mary Quilt Designs, Harrisonville, Missouri will be teaching two classes at Cut Up & Quilt August 24th and 25th.   We are thrilled to have her back.  She and Becky partnered up at Quilt Market and they worked out a plan for some fun classes.

Upcoming Classes

Check out the classes/calendar page for a current list of classes and events. It's always changing with new additions that sometimes don't make it to the newsletter.     

Jade is excited about teaching classes per customer requests.  August 12th she'll be teaching the Alphabet Soup technique the Jaybird way.  If you are a Jaybird Quilt Design fan, you already have the tools you need.


It's always great to have an instructor work through the pattern and sort out what works to make your life easier. Denniele loves curves and she's determined to show you how to love them too!  She has chosen two Latifah Saafir Studio patterns to impart her knowledge on you. Glam Clam is still under construction but here is a sneak peek at the beautiful fabrics she has chosen! We promise it will be ready before your class meets on Thursday, August 24th.

 is another pattern from Latifa Saafir Studios.  Denniele will be teaching this one on
Friday, August 25th.  

We can't seem to get enough of Jaybird Quilt Designs around here.  Karen was asked to teach Trail Mix and here it is, August 26th. This one uses the Super Sidekick Ruler which many of you already have.  Karen will teach you the techniques to get you comfortable with this ruler and you can go to town with all the Jaybird patterns that use it.  

That gets us through August and we'll start out September with a bang. You'll want to put September 2nd on your calendar.  We'll be celebrating our 5th Anniversary and you won't want to miss out.  

Be sure to check out our calendar for all the upcoming classes and events. We have things booked into November so you'll want to make sure you are in the know.  Classes fill fast around here!

 We hope to see you soon @ Cut Up & Quilt!
