A place to keep up to date with what's going on in the shop for those of us that don't have Facebook or Instagram. I'll be resharing many of our posts here!
We got over two PALETTES of fabric from Benartex yesterday! Including batiks, we got 13 new lines! Here's the majority of them, and remember, you can always find our newest fabric lines under Shop > Fabric > New Fabric!
Lots of fun things going on here at ACC!
We're turning 25 this year! Well, the store is, lol. And we want to celebrate the biggest part of ACC... you!
Please send us your "then and now" quilt pictures! We want to see how you have grown with us! So send us two pictures; one of your very first quilt or project (25 years ago or not) and your favorite recent project! We will be sharing these as a part of our upcoming 25th anniversary celebration!
Please email these images to firstname.lastname@example.org, and let us know if we can share who the photos belong to or if you'd rather stay anonymous, as well as whenabouts the items were made, and any other info you'd like to include!
We also have the All Carolinas Shop Hop coming up!!
A few things going on here at Asheville Cotton Co!
First of all, we are in the middle of Carolina Shop Hop! For full info, you can visit carolinashophop.com.
If you are seeing this after hop is over, we will probably still have some blocks left, so call us, send an email, or drop by if you'd like one!
We also just unboxed a great new kid's line from Northcott, "Prehistoric World"!
Lastly, we are hosting a bus trip!
Come hang out with friends, both old and new, while checking out some new and different quilt shops. Leave the driving to us! We are hosting a bus trip on Tuesday, September 13 (the previous date of Sept. 20 was incorrect!)
The trip will start at ACC and go to Bless My Stitches in Murphy, TN, to Chattanooga Quilts in Chattanooga, TN, to Cherry Pit in Sevierville, TN, and then back to Asheville. It's going to be a blast!
The day will start at 7:30am and we'll have lunch and snacks on the bus. We plan to be back in Asheville around 7:30pm. The cost is $110 including lunch, snacks and a special tote bag for all your loot.
It's about an hour and a half between shops on a nice charter bus. We'll be playing quilt-y games and enjoying other fun activities during the ride. Our beloved Bethany Marler, who moved away this year, has agreed to be your hostess for this event (barring any unforeseen circumstances, of course). If you know Bethany, you know she will bring the party up a notch!
Hi all! A few things! First I am thrilled to announce that this year's Customer Quilt Show was able to raise $5030 for our local food bank, MANNA! They are able to make four meal from each dollar, so that is over 20,000 meals for local families in need! I am so proud to be apart of such a kind and generous community! Thank you!!
And now, here is the handful of NEW fabric lines we have gotten in in the past month ...
Kindred Sketches by Kathy Doughty for FIGO Fabrics; Luminosity by Northcott; Botanical Magic by Wilmington Prints;
Howdy Christmas by Northcott; And Wild Ones by RJR Studio;
We've got a couple bright and lovely new lines in from FreeSpirit fabrics! "Oh Happy Day!" By Keiko Goke, and "Laurelwood" by Brenda Walton!
A bright and beautiful new batik line from Anthology!
Our first virtual $5 quilt club meeting of 2022! Robin summarizes how the quilt club works, then shows off the new blocks, and reveals the theme, "When Life Gives You Lemons"!
