It is with great pleasure that we'd like to announce the next Heart Builders charity - Crisis Nursery. Remember, 20% of the profit from every purchase goes to make quilts to be donated - box memberships, mystery quilts and even purchases from our online shop all count! Every little bit makes a big impact for these children in the most need!
The CRISIS NURSERY is an independent, not-for-profit agency funded by donations and committed to preventing child abuse and neglect by providing short-term, emergency shelter for children, birth through age 12, whose families are faced with emergencies or who are in crisis.
Founded in 1986, the Crisis Nursery has become a cornerstone in the fight against child abuse and neglect. In addition to the direct care of the children, the Crisis Nursery gives ongoing support and follow-up care to families and serves as a child/family advocate within the social services system.
Families may voluntarily bring their children to any of the Nursery sites for a variety of reasons, including overwhelming parental stress, parental or sibling illness or death, lack of utilities, food or shelter, domestic violence or other emergency situations which jeopardize the safety and well-being of the child and necessitate temporary parent-child separation. The average stay of a child is two to three days.
December Ambassador Applications are now open! The application will be open from now until noon CST on Sunday (December 10) --
What is the Ambassador Program?
Every month, Cotton Cuts will choose a few dedicated members to become brand Ambassadors. An Ambassador is someone who is creative, loves fabric, and shares our vision for the cause. Each chosen Ambassador will receive a special version of that month’s MODERN MAKER box! This month, we feature Woodland Nymph by Rae Ritchie for Dear Stella
What’s in the Ambassador box?
The Ambassador will receive a free delivery with 3 yards of modern fabric and a new fabric collection, a spool of Aurifil thread, a signature pencil, and a box exclusive pattern.
Sounds Great! What do I have to do?
Here are the requirements:
1. Your box will be shipped to you via Priority Mail on the 15th of the month.
2. We ask that you then post an unboxing photo/video to your Instagram the day it arrives, and tag us in it.
3. By the 5th of the month (about 2 weeks after unboxing) we ask that you post a completed project and talk a little bit about your experience with the materials and making the piece.
4. Your creativity is what we want! So feel free to make any project of your choice but please use only the fabrics from that month’s box.
5. Enjoy it! The Ambassador Project is all about getting you involved with the cause and giving you an outlet to showcase your creative projects!
How can I apply?
Go to www.cottoncuts.com/ambassadors to apply now!
Applications are currently limited to the US only
What if I’m not chosen?
Don't worry! If you aren’t chosen we will keep your application with us on file so there’s no need to re-apply, and you will become an Ambassador in Waiting
As an ambassador in waiting we will periodically email out a quilt block challenge to you with a link to purchase an Ambassador In Waiting Fabric Bundle. Each bundle is specific to you and your challenge as an Ambassador In Waiting

I was lucky enough to be chosen as a #ccambassador this month. I was given these beautiful @alisonglass fabrics to work with. I've been needing a sewing machine cover for so long, so jumped on Pinterest and started looking for ideas that would best showcase these gorgeous fabrics making sure to fussy cut it for the beautiful mermaid, bristle starfish and ship. Thank you so much @stashbuilderbox @cotton_cuts for this wonderful opportunity. Now, I'm off to make a matching pincushion. #alisonglassfabric#divingboardfabric#sewingmachinecover#handmade#imamischiefmaker .

Stay tuned for an exciting announcement tomorrow on @cotton_cuts involving Alison and raising money for our #heartbuilders that are near and dear to our heart!! #cottoncuts#iheartsbb#iheartcottoncuts
Look what's going on over at @cotton_cuts tomorrow and for the rest of the week!! ------
So we had a FANTASTIC time at #quiltmarket and have A TON of surprises in store for you this week. We truly treasure everything that we found at Market and want to see it go into as many of your hands as possible, so each day we will have a new and exciting surprise for you, culmination in a new and exciting surprise from @tartankiwi...but more on that later in the week 🤐
First up, we thought we would have a little auction for three (3!!) of the #veryrare Tula Pink (@tulapink) 13” embroidered, signed and numbered frog patches to benefit Valley Industries. Valley is the sheltered workshop for disabled individuals that does all of the cutting and folding for Cotton Cuts. We could not do what we do without them and all of the incredible work they do providing meaningful employment for folks with developmental disabilities. We love to give back at Cotton Cuts and hope you will join us in supporting this worthwhile organization.
Sometime tomorrow a photo of three numbered patches from Tula’s embroidered frogs will appear on our IG feed. Just comment with your bid and tag a friend (DON’T FORGET THE TAG!!) Then the THREE highest bidders will each receive a limited edition patch, easy as that! We will cover shipping - open to US and INTERNATIONAL. All money raised will be donated to Valley.⠀Please don't post your bid here - be on the lookout for the special post 👌
Since this is for helping others - we will start at $20 - and hope for much lovely generosity. Bidding will close Wednesday, 11/1 at 10:00 am CST. If you are the highest bidders we will tag you on the post. Then please send @cotton_cuts a direct message with your email. We will then send a PayPal invoice. Questions? ⠀
Okay super, this will be fun! We are excited to see what happens and how much we can pool together to donate and can’t wait for these froggies to find a new loving Tula Troop home. Thanks for all of your support!
And here they Are!
Introducing our October Modern Maker Ambassadors (From top left): @mischief_unmanaged @dell0301 @homemadeemilyjane @liveacolorfullife .
