What's New at CQ 12/26/2023


Dear Friends,

It's time for our YEAR-END SALE!!  Take 20% off* storewide, 12/26/23-12/31/23. Please stop by and see everything we have on sale!

There are new classes already on the calendar for first quarter and beyond!  For example, Elizabeth is planning on a class showing you some of the creative and amazing things you can do with fabric selvedges in February.

What causes do you support with your sewing? We are always looking for outlets that can use hand-sewn items, and hope that we can coordinate with you to bring some fabric joy to others.


As a reminder, we are closing at 4:00pm on New Year's Eve, and will be closed New Year's Day.


Happy Sewing!

*Discounts may not be stacked.  Not valid on services, classes, special orders, furniture or machines.


We've gotten in a few bolts of Renee Nanneman's Cottage Cloth from Andover Fabrics.

This elegant wide-back just came in from QT Fabrics, and has to be seen in person to fully appreciate.

From Birch Fabrics (organic cotton!), we have assorted Charley Harper Fat Quarter Medleys, as well as some canvas in the print "Endpapers".

Quilter's Rule has introduced a new and improved formula. Quilt Soap contains no phosphorus, dyes, or water. The surfactants in Quilt Soap are biodegradable and will not harm fabrics or the environment.


Now is the time to register for your favorite clubs!

The January 5th topic for Sew Together via Zoom is Temperature Quilts. Participants are encouraged to make one in 2024, and several ideas and techniques will be discussed.

Slow stitching is gaining popularity! If you'd like to try hand-piecing, we have a class for you!  Starting on January 15th, Laurie will instruct you on how to make your own stunning Lone Star wall hanging!  The class is spread out over three sessions to give you plenty of time for "homework".

CQ Cares (Community Sewing Projects)

We have placemat kits available at the shop, please stop by to pick up one (or two). For those who want to sew from their stash, click on the picture for the beginner-friendly Charm Square Placemats pattern, or you can use your own pattern.

Please return all completed placemats to Capital Quilts.
Thank you for your continued support of the Capital Quilts Cares program. 

We have free small kennel quilts kits available. These little quilts are sent to shelters who take in pets displaced by natural disaster. To quilters, they are a great beginner project, a use for leftover fabric, and a place to practice free motion skills. To use your stash, visit
