You aren't going to believe this, but the City of Kennesaw is telling us that the road from Lewis to Main (and from Dallas to Main) will be open very soon. This will give you two more ways to get to our shop! Keep your fingers crossed that they get this section opened this week!

 

Temporary road closures: As you are planning your next trip to Cottontail Quilts, they have closed Watts Street (off Cobb Parkway) for street improvements. Watts/Dallas St. will be closed for several months. You will need to use Main Street to Lewis Street during the construction period.
