Oregon Fire Relief Effort at The Cotton Patch

Okay, 2020, knock it off already! 

As seems to be the continuing trend this year, our communities here in Oregon are facing yet another challenge as wildfires are burning rampantly statewide.  Hundred of thousands of acres have been consumed - some of which are right in Salem's backyard.  We all know people who are awaiting the call to evacuate, who have already evacuated, and even some till, who have lost their homes.    

We want to do our part to help support firefighting and relief efforts, so here's what we are going to do from now until 9/30/20:

1. From now until the end of the month, 5% of all fabric sales will be donated to the local Red Cross. They need supplies for the shelters they have established statewide for fire evacuees. 

2. From now until the end of the month, we will be collecting donations (as well as contributing our own) for quilters who have been evacuated and who have lost their sewing supplies to the fire. Donate one unused, unwashed (but clean!) Fat Quarter to this effort and receive a 15% off coupon for your next purchase (one coupon per customer regardless of how many fabric donations provided)

We will revisit needs at the end of the month. Quilters are the most caring, and giving group of people around - let's show our community some love!


New Blender Alert - Marbella by Benartex

Oh my gosh.

You know we love fabric, and you know we are all about those blenders.  So, we are SUPER EXCITED about the line we just got in - Marbella by Paula Nadelstern at Benartex! 

Seriously, the pictures don't do these fabrics justice. They're amazing.  And we have. all. of. them. for just $11.50 per yard.

If you're as in love with these as we are, stop by and have a look and see just how much more beautiful they are in person! We are also doing phone orders for mail-out or curbside pickup.  These are also now available on our website! 


Project Linus Update

For many years, The Cotton Patch has been proud to be a drop off site for Project Linus.  However, effective 7/3/20, we are no longer a drop site.  The Project Linus Chapter we have been working with serves the Portland and Vancouver area, and there are many drop sites closer to their service area. 

If you want more information about Project Linus and what they do, check out their website: 

These kids need the comfort of a quilt, and we hope you continue to donate to them whether we are your chosen drop site or not - it's a wonderful and very needed cause and we all know quilters have the giving hearts to make it happen.
