The more shops you visit, the greater your chances are of winning the bigger prizes. We have $$$thousands$$$ in prizes to give away! The grand prize is a $100 gift certificate from each shop in the 2017 Shop Hop, and there are 20 HUGE gift baskets. There are also daily prizes at each shop. Plus, everyone who visits all ten shops and presents a completed Passport will receive a souvenir travel mug!

 

As usual, every shop will have a notion on sale for 25% off! Our notion will be this wonderful little Steamfast Travel Steam Iron . It's a small iron but packs a big punch!  Keep one in the bag you take to classes and another at home for small projects!

We're planning a Solar Sewing Day on Monday, August 21st! 
We are prepared with safety glasses for you and will be making this cute star quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Company. You can make a table topper, or baby quilt. Put four or six together to make a lap quilt or even bigger.  Nine of these make a huge quilt!  Create your own souvenir from the 2017 Eclipse in the form of a quilt to commemorate this once in a lifetime event. Plus have fun sewing and laughing!! Bring your lunch to this one. With all the anticipated visitors to the area, delivery options may not work.  We'll have a few snacks for you, too.  Here's a link to watch Jenny create this beauty.  The picture is my version.

Show & Tell
Bonnie made this beautiful panel quilt with her own twist! Check out Jan's beautiful quilting, too. 


I can't remember how many HST's this quilt has in it but it's a BUNCH!  Don't you just love scrappy??  

I've been playing with wool and found this pattern in the new issue of "Primitive Quilts and Projects".  Just got these magazines in at the shop. 

This is Miss Loralie.  She's been coming in the shop since she was born!  She's now four and turned into quite the princess.  Isn't she beautiful??

Then we had this sweetie come in.  Awe!

Ryan's Case for Smiles
Our charity focus at Sassy Stitches is Ryan's Case for Smiles. This is an organization that provides fun pillowcases for sick children .  ALL of our donations will be used in Asheville, NC at Mission Children's Hospital. I volunteered for this charity for several years and have personally delivered pillow cases to kids at Mission Children's Hospital and assure you it brings great joy to sick children to pick out a fun pillowcase. When you read the story about Cindy and her son, Ryan, you will understand what a great cause this is. It's the perfect charity for anyone who sews! Here is a link to the organization's website.
We will accept pillowcases, fabric donations for making pillow cases and monetary donations. If you choose to make pillowcases, there are tips on the website (see link above) about making them. The volunteers who take the pillowcases wash them before delivery. Something so simple as a fun pillowcase really does bring a smile to a sick child.  THANKS!


Lindy, Anne, and the Best Staff EVER!
