Sassy Stitches!

  

Our new sign is up and the block has been painted. I'm proud that we are officially labeled and everyone can now know they have arrived at Sassy Stitches!  Thanks to Express Signs for their awesome work and thanks to my husband, Jerry, and my boys, Tyler and Logan for helping.  

We surprised Dawn with a trip to the Mountain Quiltfest in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee on Thursday.  We rented a big van and all rode together.  Oh my goodness we had fun!  Y'all I am Mom and I are so blessed to have the most wonderful ladies working for us.  Some of our staff couldn't go with us and we sure did miss them.  Thanks for driving us, Annie.  Dawn, we love you to pieces and expect you to keep in touch and visit whenever you can.  You will be greatly missed.  






Here is another beginner's completed quilt.  Way to go, Robyn!  One of my favorite things about these beginners, including their enthusiasm and new addiction, is how different all of the same quilt pattern turns out.  SO cool!
Planning is well underway for this years "Airing of the Quilts!"  Plan to join Downtown Franklin merchants on Saturday, May 13, 2017.  Vendors will be set up and shops open at 9:00.  The event will last until 4:00.  Sassy Stitches will be open at 10:00 as usual but remain open until 4:00 for this special event.  We have a great class in the works on Friday, May 12th to make a sweet wall hanging.  Pictures and more info will be available soon.  We will also have a Make & Take class on Saturday.  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!  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 ?!?!?  
 

There has been a delay in the publication of Deb's new BOM pattern. We will keep you posted!

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 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. 

I so appreciate your business.  I can't express how much it means to me that you choose Sassy Stitches.  Thank you SEW much! Until next Sunday, have a wonderful week and come see us!

Have you always wanted to make this cute and functional Iron Caddy?  Here's your chance!  There are a few tricks that we've figured out to make the pattern easier to complete and when you're done, you have a carrying case AND an ironing surface. This is the perfect way to carry your iron to class. There are two sizes to choose from.  Call the shop or stop in to reserve your spot!

Janome Memory Craft 15000
I found this short video that explains some of the embroidery features of the Janome Memory Craft 15000. Remember we offer financing at Sassy Stitches.  Come in and test drive the 15000 or any of our machines.  We love helping you find just the right one for you!


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. He delivered 5 ruler keepers to the shop this past week and they are ALL gone!  We will be ordering more! Stop in or call the shop to get his information.  His work is truly beautiful!
Show & Tell
Dawn worked on this project over a year.  She used these squares similar to Bonnie Hunter's "Leaders and Enders" method.  Isn't is beautiful!
 

We were so glad to see Cindy and her husband.  She finished her "Around We Go" and brought it to share.  Fantastic job, Cindy!



We are excited to announce that we have scheduled some classes with  instructor Nancy Sapin!  Nancy is a  Freelance National Educator representing Sulky of America.  She creates beautiful projects and shares her wealth of information as an awesome teacher.  The first class we have on the calendar is "Pinweaving Portraits" scheduled for May 6.  More information on this class soon. Here is a sneak peak at some of Nancy's pinweaving.  

 
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!
