Happy 21st Birthday Party and Machine Giveaway


Friday, September 21, 10a-5p

This September marks Asheville Cotton Co.'s 21st year in business! We want to thank all of you for your patronage through the years.

Come by and celebrate with us this Friday, September 21st. We'll be having a 21st birthday party for the shop. The twist is this is a "Plus One Party." We are asking that everyone bring a NON-sewing friend with them. Each pair of sewist and non-sewists will receive a raffle ticket... There will be two chances to win a free sewing machine for both you AND your friend! That's right, we're giving away a total of four sewing machines! We love what we do, and we know you do, too. We want more people to fall in love with sewing and quilting! The two machines will come with our Machine Mastery classes so your non-sewing friend can learn how to sew.

Enter the drawing from 10am until 5pm on Friday, September 21st. You and your "plus one" must visit together to enter. Drawings for all four sewing machines will be at 5pm, but you do not need to be present to win. We'll have other drawings for other prizes as well. And since it's our "21st birthday," we'll have food and fun beverages!

Meet Baby Lock Solaris Party TOMORROW!

It's here and it's even better than we expected! Solaris' built-in IQ Visionary™ projector actually shows your embroidery design directly on the fabric! Position embroidery designs and decorative stitches with just a touch of the wireless stylus. Resize, move or make other adjustments–all while seeing it happen in real time before you sew it out. Perfect placement is achieved every time. Plus, there are lots of reasons this machine is a quilter's dream!

For the month of September only, get a rolling trolley, new Palette 11 Digitizing Embroidery Software, and a 2-Year Love of Knowledge Membership with your Baby Lock Solaris. That's a $3500+ Value!

We've always been committed to education here at Asheville Cotton Co.  In addition to the two years of FREE online classes from Baby Lock, you'll get SIX FREE Machine Mastery classes here in the store! These classes are Monday evenings and Tuesday mornings, you can take them in any order, and you can take them as many times as you'd like! (Sorry, Machine Mastery classes are only available with the purchase of a machine at Asheville Cotton Co.)  We also give a one-year labor warranty which includes your first-year annual cleaning and service, and discounts throughout the store when you purchase your machine at ACC.

Check out this awesome video!

Come meet the Solaris during our Solaris Party tomorrow, Thursday, September 20a, 10a-1p. Free. At this point, just show up in the morning and we'll put an extra seat out for you!

Bra-La-La Bra Decorating Contest for Breast Cancer

You know we love to give back to our community here at Asheville Cotton Co.  In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, we're going to start another tradition. We're going to have a "Bra-La-La" bra decorating contest! All proceeds from this event will go to Hope Chest for Women. Hope Chest for Women offers limited financial assistance to women in Western NC who are undergoing breast or gynecological cancer treatment. This non-profit was created because women often must choose between receiving treatment and providing for their families. Hope Chest assists with financial burdens such as rent and utility bills, gas and transportation, medical bills and co-pays, lymphedema garments, food, and other unmet needs. Typically, clients are referred by hospitals and physicians, etc. I can't wait to see your "uplifting" ideas! Decorated Art Bra entries will be due on October 1. Check here for a list of rules and an entry form.
