We love fabric and the idea of fabric delivered to our doors every month (more time for sewing)! While there are other "of the month" clubs out there, many of them provide duplicate notions, fabrics we're not interested in, or patterns that are not inspiring or challenging. Many fat quarter clubs send the same colorway or fabric designer every month. We wanted variety and inspiration.
Surely there had to be a better way!
Introducing Cotton Cuts - a team of quilting enthusiasts located in St. Louis, Missouri. We are passionate about all things fabric and want to share our love with our fellow quilting community. You get the power of choice while still having an inspiring surprise specifically selected for you. We strive to delight you with inspiration to tickle your inner quilter and will do everything we can to exceed your expectations.
Meet our fabric enthusiasts
Kim is the founder of Cotton Cuts. She has been quilting since she was 13 years old but sewing for as long as she could sit in a chair next to her mom. She loves the geometry and the puzzle piecing elements of quilting. She likes to refer to her craft as “textile engineering” and she considers her style to be transitional modern (bright colors and non-traditional assembly of traditional blocks). She has recently learned how to paper piece and her world was changed. She has two boys, 6 and 4 years old. She teaches sewing and quilting in her neighborhood and looks forward to one day teaching her own boys.
Alex is our guru of all things social media at Cotton Cuts. Alex is a relatively new quilter, as she took her first quilting class as a gift from Kim last Christmas, which was a Mystery Quilt class during the Super Bowl. It is her oldest WIP in her craft room. She is a developing modern quilter and loves to sew with blenders and solids. The more asymmetric, the more she loves it. She is also a lover of beautiful yarn and loves to crochet in her spare, spare time. She has two children, a 8 year old daughter and a 6 year old son.
Debbie is our fabric guru at Cotton Cuts. She learned to quilt as a child from her grandmother, who taught her to hand quilt and embroider. As she grew up, she was never far from her sewing as it kept her close to her grandmother. She taught herself how to machine sew while making a baby quilt for her first child. It was then that she started working at a LQS and her fabric stash blossomed appropriately. She is a traditional quilter and loves to sew in basic, but beautiful, quilt blocks. She has three children, two boys (22 and 19) and a 16 year old daughter.
Sue is our guru of all things creative at Cotton Cuts. She is the visionary behind our logo and all design elements. She studied graphic design and has a creative eye for color. She has been a lover of art and color since she was a small child. She picked up a love of fabric from her mother and started out designing clothing but has recently converted to quilting handbags and accessories. She describes her style as Equal Opportunity and selects fabrics from a wide range when creating. She lives with her husband and two dogs, a beagle and a brittany.
