Christmas fabric has started arriving! I got so excited to open that first box this week.  We got in this cute line from Moda by Bunny Hill Designs called Sugar Plum.  












This awesome snowflake tree panel also came in.  Isn't it beautiful?

There's lots more to come!  Remember your theme for the retreat this year is Christmas!  And now's the time to start making all those Christmas projects.  I'll keep you posted as we get more in!


A reminder to our seasonal customers - we scheduled our Breakfast Club so that you can join and still have 6 meetings just like our Jan - June group.  Today was the first meeting that included new members.  I am extending the invitation to join until next months meeting.  SO - with 5 remaining meetings (May - September) for seasonal customers, your next meeting will be Saturday, May 20th at 10:00.  Annie cooks up DELICIOUS breakfasts and serves coffee, tea, and juice. Then she provides a pattern (and the recipe for all of her yummy items) and you make something SEW cute!  SEW much fun!

 While you're in town for this year's Airing of the Quilts on Friday, May 12, join us for a class to make this sweet tulip wall hanging. This class begins at 10:00 and lasts until noon. Cost will be $20 plus supplies.  Call the shop or come by to reserve your spot!

 We will also have a Make & Take class on Saturday, May 13.  Stay tuned for more details!
      
 
Remember we are providing opportunities for you to come work on your club projects during the "Sit & Sew" times this year or if 
you're not in a club, just come sew! 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. You can order lunch or bring your own. Come sew with us!   Did I mention it's FREE ?!?!?

Please note the change in the Breakfast Club May meeting. Due to Airing of the Quilts, that meeting has been changed from May 13th to May 20th. And don't forget, seasonal customers!!! We are still planning a Breakfast Club just for you! Join Annie for breakfast, recipes, and fun projects. 
Call or stop by to sign up!

Shop Hop UFO Sew Days!
Good progress was made in our Shop Hop Sew Day!  I believe 2009 and 2012 quilts were being put together.  We had a discount certificate for those who came to sew and a few gifts.  Thanks for joining in on the fun!

Paul Johnson
We can't keep Paul's awesome ruler holders in the shop!  He recently used this beautiful Zebra Wood to make more.  Wow!
 
We love seeing what he's going to bring in next!  We also love seeing his other half, Ann. They are such a fun couple!Paul left a book at the shop with pictures of several of his creations.  He can also create a custom piece if you have something in mind.  I'm a little partial to his sewing furniture but he can make much more.

New Rulers!
W e have the new rulers, rotary cutters, and mats from Quilters Select!  Y'all, these rulers WILL NOT slide or slip.  I have never seen anything like this!!!!!  You need to come try one out to see for yourself.  They are SEW amazing!  I bought one of the rulers a few months ago to try for myself.  I will never use anything else!  The rotary cutter is weighted and lessens the pressure you have to use to cut fabric.  AND it's ambidextrous!  The same rotary cutter is used for left handed or right handed folks.  The cutting mat is a little thicker than most and get this . . . it's reversible!  It's like buying two mats at one time!  The numbers for measuring on both the rulers and the mats go both ways.  In other words, you don't have to keep turning the ruler or count backwards on your mat!  Here is a link to their website.  Alex Anderson designed these awesome tools. Come by to try them out and check out the website for more into!

Show & Tell
 Look at this beautiful applique quilt that Pam is making!
 
Monica made this awesome sampler using the new Moda Cake Mix Recipe Cards.  It's a neat tablet of paper that you use with 2 pieces of a layer cake to create half-square triangles.  There are several possibilities and many patterns.  Stay tuned for a Moda Bake off event soon!

Look at this sweet baby quilt. 

What a wonderful gift a tee shirt quilt makes!  Look at this one.  We are planning a class on making a tee shirt quilt this summer.  Stay tuned!

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! 
(They really are!!!!!)
