What's New @ Cut Up & Quilt!

Are You Ready for the Holidays?

Even though we know it comes at the same time every year, it seems like the holiday season has snuck up on us again. Here it is almost Thanksgiving! You know what that means, right?  

We'll be kicking off the 12 Days of Christmas on Small Business Saturday.  We can't compete with those big stores on Black Friday, so we've got our own special day on Saturday, November 24th.  

We'll have Christmas treats; Karen will be demonstrating something you're sure to love; we'll have some great specials and most of all you're sure to enjoy the festive Christmas spirit from our team at Cut Up & Quilt!  So, if you haven't already put it on your calendar, it's time to do it now, you won't want to miss out.    


12 Days of Christmas

Every year we have fun giving our customers 12 days of great deals.  It all starts on Saturday, November 24th during our holiday open house.  

Here's how it works:  

Each business day beginning on Saturday the 24th (we're closed Sunday) for 12 days, we'll post a great special that can't be beat.  

The catch is that you need to reserve it that day.  You can call, send and email or stop into the shop to reserve the item of the day.  

If you are signed up for the email newsletter, you should receive an email each morning with the daily special.  If you do not receive the email, it will be posted on our website each day prior to 10:00 AM.  You can find the button on the lower right corner of our homepage or go directly to the calendar to see the daily special.  We send all emails out at the same time, we cannot control what time you receive them, so if you haven't received the email by 10:00 just check our home page.  

You do not need to pick up each item individually.  You can accumulate them until the end and pick them up all at once, or along the way.  The deadline for pick ups is Saturday, December 15th.  That gives you an extra week following the end of the 12 days to gather your goodies.  

We have a limited number of each item and there is a limit to one item per customer.  The individual who orders the item must be the individual to pick them up.  You cannot pick up items for someone else.  No items will be mailed.  

We love the festive spirit the 12 days of Christmas brings and we love to share these great deals with you to make your Christmas bright.  We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy passing it along to you.  

Tis the Season of Giving

Each year Lynn designs a project with the spirit of giving as her purpose. This is the fourth year, we've joined Lynn in her efforts. This year all proceeds from the sales of her "Yet The Same" pattern and kit will be donated to the Food Pantry at the First Baptist Church in Council Bluffs.

With your donation, the pantry can buy food from the CB Food Bank for 18 - 24 cents per pound.  That means your purchase of a kit will provide up to 75 pounds of food and make the season a little brighter for families in our community.  Let's see what we can do to help those who have fallen on hard times.  

You can make your purchase on-line or in our shop.
Pattern is $4.00
Kit is $15.00

 Upcoming Classes

We don't schedule many classes in late November and December due to the hectic time of year. We have more things brewing for the new year, they just haven't been finalized yet for advertising.  

heck 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. Just click on the class you want and register on-line or in the shop.  If it's full, be sure to add your name to the waiting list.  It helps our instructors determine if another class will be added.  

If you need to cancel a class, please give us the courtesy to let us know as soon as possible to free up the seat for someone who would love your spot.  We will refund your class registration if we have at least a 24 hour notice.

We have openings in the Winding Ways class scheduled for Saturday, November 17th.  Quiltsmart’s printed, fusible interfacing makes the machine applique process for this fun quilt easy! 

Jean is offering a three part Log Cabin class beginning on January 24th.  It will continue to meet on the 4th Thursday of the month in February and March. It's beginner friendly and a great follow on for anyone who has taken the beginning quilting class.  


Wednesday, November 21 - We will close at 3:00 and reopen on Friday for normal business hours.    

Saturday, November 24th - Holiday Open House

Monday, December 25 - January 1st - Closed for the Holidays
