Well Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow on Thursday which is supposed to mean we have 6 more weeks of winter.  I say it means more time that we MUST stay inside and sew!!!!! Here's a link to a cute little groundhog pattern while you patiently wait for Spring.  
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!  We are changing this a little bit after some customer feedback.  Regardless of whether you want to do some handwork or sew on your machine, come on either of the two "Sit & Sew" days provided each month and 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 ?!?!?  





Sassy Stitches will be happy to help you select fabrics and gather the Creative Grids tools you need to get ready for workshops or classes. We also have special sales for attendees at local quilting events.  

Remember that we carry all of the Creative Grids rulers and tools so call or come by the shop to get all of your supplies! We will be glad to ship them to you if you don't live close by. 

Have a wonderful week and come see us!

Remembering Robin
Several customers and all of our staff suffered a tremendous loss when our friend Robin Coggins passed away a little more than two years ago. And of course her family was so very devastated when they lost their mother and wife. Robin was full of life and brought much laughter and joy to all. Robin purchased the top of the line sewing and embroidery machine in June before she passed away in November. The machine is like brand new. She had a wealth of other sewing supplies that any quilter would be thrilled to own. No one in her family sews and they are ready to sell Robin's sewing supplies and have some very nice items for sale.  Here is a list of what is available.
*Like new, top of the line sewing and embroidery machine with iPad 
*20th Anniversary Grace Company Quilting Frame w/ machine already attached
*85 Embroidery CD's - Most are Anita Goodesign
*110 Spools of Embroidery Thread
*25 Quilt Books
*Singer Serger
*Over 100 Yards of Quilting Fabric
*17 Rulers/Tools with Stand
Here are some of some of the items:


 
The total value of all of these items is much more than what the family is asking. Their price for everything listed is $11,000. This includes 2 sewing machines and a serger!  Here are phone numbers where you can reach family members if you have questions or would like to arrange a time to go see these items.

NEW CLUB for 2017!
Sassy Strippers! (Only 1 week left to sign up!!!!!)
There are still spots available in our "Sassy Strippers" club so we are extending the sign-up until the next meeting on Tuesday, February 14th. The " Sassy Strippers " will meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from January through June and the goal is to complete three quilt tops. Here are two pictures of the first quilt using different fabrics.  It's gorgeous!

February Class
We haven't added many classes lately because our clubs take up most of our month!  We are offering this wreath class at the request of some folks.  This is another part of the Fold N Stitch Wreath patterns.  The Fold N Stitch patterns have been SO popular. This one is called "Fold and Stitch Blooms" and here are some samples in different fabrics.  
   


Date:  Tuesday, February 28
Time:  10:00 - 12:00
Fee:  $20 (plus supplies)
Paul Johnson
Mr. Paul Johnson is well-known for his beautiful wood work.  He recently made me a few pieces that I love!  I asked for a quilt ladder to display quilts and also a ruler keeper.  Here's what he made.


Paul left a book at the shop 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.  Stop in or call the shop to get his information.  His work is truly beautiful!
 
Show & Tell
Dawn finished her Farm Girl quilt!  Isn't it awesome?!?
Several of us are itching to make one of these.  Anybody else?
Elaine made AND quilted this sweet miniature quilt.  Nice job!
Pictures don't do this one justice.  Joan was in our Woolies club last year.  THIS is STUNNING!  Pat Horning did the quilting.  WOW! 

Joan also made this precious puppy quilt using batiks.  Again, pictures don't do it justice.  SO cute!



We got pretty new fabrics in!
This line from Northcott has a little shimmer.  Not too much and not too little.  JUST right!
We also got in this cute line of sewing/quilting themed fabric. 




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!
