What's New at CQ 8/12/21

Dear Friends,

Rod's Sharpening Service is once again coming to Capital Quilts on 8/17 to sharpen all of your scissors, knives, and garden shears that have lost their cutting edge.  Rod's Sharpening Service sharpens knives of all types (even serrated!), household and utility scissors, beauty salon and barbers' shears, and most garden tools. Their precision sharpening system ensures the correct angle for your knife, thus extending the life of the blade--it will cut just like new. They can also repair some defects such as chipped blades or bent tips (additional fees may apply). 

     Fabric shears, pinking shears, household scissors:  $7.00
     Beauty salon shears:  $25.00
     Any type of knife:  $7.00
     Small garden tools (less than 12 inches):  $7.00

Items should be dropped off at the shop no later than 5pm on Monday, August 16th.

For everyone's safety, all items must be packaged/wrapped securely with rubber bands or packing tape securing the item in a towel, pillowcase, padded envelope, or box.  Attach your name, address, phone number, and cash or check payable to Rod's Sharpening Service.

Happy Sewing!



Designed by Amanda Murphy for Benartex, this iridescent cotton fabric is from the Cotton Shot Pearl collection. Woven using cotton thread which is dyed in small batches, the variations in color and small imperfections in the weaving are a natural part of the beauty of the fabric. Plus, it creates soft and subtle shifts in color.
