What's Happening at the QC?

Holiday Wish List
Come on in and fill out a Holiday Wish List at the QC! We get many friends and family members of quilters that come in asking what a good gift for their favorite quilter would be... We all love Gift Cards, but wouldn't it be nice if you could open a brand new notion, fabric pack, pattern, Scan N Cut, or maybe even a new sewing or embroidery machine on Christmas morning!

Fill out a Holiday wish list with us and your loved ones will have all the information they need to pick out exactly what you'd like.
**BONUS!** They (or you, shopping for yourself!) will get 10% off any notions, patterns, kits, or fabric you put on your list! This discount will continue until the end of the year, so if you don't open what you were hoping for... Come in and get it for yourself!
