Sassy Stitches!


Can it really be August already?  As a school teacher of many years, August was always the month to start gearing up for the beginning of a new school year.  At Sassy Stitches, August means thinking about next year's clubs. It also means Deb's quilt retreat is coming up and as usual, we will open early on the two Mondays of each week of camp just for attendees.  We will have specials and prizes just for YOU!  Keep an eye on the newsletter for more info.

 
Congratulations to Janet Motte!  She won our Shop Hop drawing for the new Janome 2206 AND a Quilting Certificate from Jan Goodman!! Thanks, again, to all who joined in the fun of the Carolina Shop Hop.  We've already started planning for next year. 
Sweet Nadia has been shop hopping since a very young age. This was her very first year to make it to all ten shops! She was the lucky winner of the kid's prize bag displayed at Sassy Stitches. Look at that smile!  Congrats, Nadia! We look forward to enjoying many more 
Shop Hops with you!

Row by Row has begun!! The theme this year is "On the Go" and you can enjoy seeing all the North Carolina participating shops' rows on the NC Row by Row Facebook page.  Between the "Go" and "Sew" on our row is a little road with cars going to a Sassy Stitches of course!   Stop in to get your free pattern, and purchase a kit, license plate, and other goodies!

The remaining August Free Friday Sew Day is Friday, August 18th.The back door will be open at 9:45 and you have until 4:00 to sew the day away!!!!!!!!  
These days have been set aside for you to use our classroom and the supplies while you fellowship with others and work towards completing projects.   BUT . . . YOU MUST RESERVE A SPOT.  We are limiting the number of people to 10 on each of the sewing days so if you are interested you need to call and reserve your spot.  It's totally free!  But we only have room for so many so let us know you're coming and we will let you know if there is still room. You can get into the classroom at 9:45 and sew until 4:00!  WOW! 
Staff can answer questions and help you briefly but they will be working on the floor taking care of other business.This is not class time so please be respectful of our staff members . 
 We will continue sew days each month so keep an eye out for the dates!

Sassy Cash UPDATE!!!!!

What's happening at Sassy Stitches?!
This class is full!  You may call and have your name placed on a waiting list in case someone cancels.  

Chris Eichner will be teaching her beautiful Shredded Art Class at Sassy Stitches on Tuesday, August 8.  
 

Learn how to create an art quilt using a rotary cutter with many different batik fabrics representing the photo of your choice or you may use Chris'.
Choosing a simple uncomplicated landscape is best. Free motion quilting will hold art work in place and there will be a demonstration of thread painting for definition.

National Sew a Jelly Roll Day!
(Copied from  Project Jelly Roll)
"Recent studies have shown that many quilters collect these pre-cuts without knowing what to do with them, without having a purpose.  The Jelly Roll in particular is left in it's original packaging and stacked on the shelf to gather dust.  Despite a huge resource of inspiration, many quilters report that they're waiting for a special reason to break out the Jelly Roll and use it for a project.
That's where Project Jelly Roll and the National Sew A Jelly Roll Day come in.  We're designating the 3rd Saturday in September of every year as National Sew A Jelly Roll Day to encourage collectors to tear open a Jelly Roll and make something."

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!
