What's New @ Cut Up & Quilt!

12 Days of Christmas 

Remember you have through December 16th to pick up any reserved items. 
One more reminder:  The person who reserved the item must be the one to pick it up.  Thanks so much and Merry Quilting to All! 

 Don't Forget Those in Need!

Each year, Lynn Doyle of Bloomin Minds designs a project with the spirit of giving as her purpose. This is the third year, we've joined Lynn in her efforts.  All proceeds from the sales of her "A Giving Heart" pattern and kit sold through December 16th will be donated to the Goodfellows.  The Iowa West Foundation matches the donation dollar-for-dollar. Last 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.

Your opportunity to contribute to this effort is available until
December 16th.  

Kit:  $12.50
Pattern:  $4.00
In store or on-line

 Save the Date - Flurry Frenzy

As we finish up our 12 Days of Christmas we're busy working on the next event...the Fourth Annual Metro Area Flurry Frenzy.  You'll have 8 days to visit the quilt shops in the metro area and collect a free fat quarter.  This year we have added three shops from Gretna and Lincoln.

Kim is offering a binding class for those who would like to learn to do their own binding or just need a refresher.  Bring a quilt that is ready to bind and she'll show you how easy it can be!

If you are interested in a beginning quilting class, or know someone who wants to learn to quilt, we've got a four-part class scheduled to begin in March.

 We have a New Employee!

We are so excited to welcome Michael Kreft to our staff.  Michael has joined us a longarmer.  You may recognize him as the former manager of Hancock fabrics before they closed.  He comes to us with lots of diverse experience and we're thrilled he joined us before the Christmas quilt deadline!
