Winter is a great time for browsing amazing photos on Instagram and adding projects to your boards on Pinterest, but Downtown Hillsboro has a new shop to get you out of the winter doldrums and make some of those projects come to life. Amy Pinkos, a local quilter and creative bag maker, is opening her dream store – The Cotton Cure – to help beginning and expert sewers, quilters, and makers achieve their wildest Pinterest dreams. And her projects are just as adorable as the new storefront at 133 SE 3rd Avenue.
“There are so many creative people in Hillsboro,” Donna Satterlee, Marketing Coordinator at Hillsboro Downtown Partnership, “and The Cotton Cure will be a great opportunity to find fun fabrics and sewing supplies locally.”
“I am looking forward to a brick-and-mortar in Downtown Hillsboro that carries quality modern fabrics and accessories,” adds AnnMarie Conley, Downtown resident. “Amy’s shop is within walking distance for me, so it will be easy to pick up fabric for a project.”
PRODUCTS & SERVICES
Seasonal and classic fabric is just the beginning of what you will find in the store. Amy will also have a good selection of notions and supplies available, with the goal of being a one-stop-shop for small and medium size projects. If you are a beginner, she is going to offer a range of project packs, tutorials, and classes in the intimate space for adults as well as children.
The store will be open Tuesdays-Fridays 10:00 am-6:00 pm; Saturdays 11:00 am-4:00 pm; Sundays noon-4:00 pm; and closed Mondays.
Hillsboro Downtown Partnership will be there to cut the ribbon at 5:45 pm on March 7, 2019. Please join us for light refreshments and, of course, a toast to the new business owner.
