I'm typing this on Saturday evening and it's rainy and cold. This is such a change from the beautiful warm weather we've been having. I'm getting ready to put the binding on a quilt and it will feel good to cover up!
Next Saturday is our annual
"Airing of the Quilts" in Downtown Franklin. Make plans now to attend this wonderful event. Quilts will be hung all over town! It's just beautiful to walk down Main Street and see all of the different ways quilts are displayed.
Here's a nice video of the Airing from 2011.
While you're in town for this year's "Airing of the Quilts" join us on Friday, May 12, 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. You will need to do your cutting before class. Call the shop or come by to reserve your spot!
The Clearance Corner is still overflowing! I've been pulling bolts of every kind and color to add to make room for new fabrics coming in. It's going out the door pretty fast! Hurry in for best selections!
We had originally thought we would start staying open until 5:00 pm beginning on May 1. We are changing that start date to May 30. SO beginning on Tuesday, May 30, Sassy Stitches will be open from 10:00 until 5:00 during the week. Our Saturday hours will remain the same. 10:00 - 2:00 Come see us!
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!
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
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!
Until next Sunday, have a wonderful week and come see us!
