Happy Anniversary To SASSY STITCHES!!!!!
July 1 marked ONE YEAR since Mom and I bought the shop! We want to thank you SEW much for your love, support and encouragement.  I have never had so much fun and been so overwhelmed in all my life!  We didn't officially change the name until later, but we started our journey on July 1, 2016.
To thank our customers, all next week (Monday - Saturday) you will get double punches on your Sassy Cash rewards card!  If you don't have a rewards card, get started with one next week. We will also have a drawing for a $50 gift certificate! We will draw a winner at the close of business on Saturday, 7/8/17.  Limit one entry per person per day. Come see us!

Happy 4th!  
  As we celebrate the Fourth of July on Tuesday - with cookouts and fireworks, with family and friends, with stars and stripes - let's also remember our service women and men who fight and have fought to protect our freedoms.  God Bless them, their families and friends and God Bless our USA! 

Sassy Stitches will be closed on Tuesday, July 4.
Some of our group from last weekend sent finished pictures of their beautiful Lonestars! 

We always have fun in the classroom during clubs and classes.  But this week, we had a room full of ladies making the cutest little sheep you have ever seen!  Fur was flying and laughter was in the air. We had a Blaaaaaaaaast! Here are a few pictures of the flock. 

You are in store for a wonderful 2017 Carolina Shop Hop!  We will be displaying our quilts in shops on July 10. All of them are beautiful and different.  We have prizes galore and as usual, every shop will have a notion on sale for 25% off!  SEW much fun!  Make your plans now to hop around to all of our wonderful shops!

   Carolina Shop Hop
July 21 - July 29th
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!

Sassy Stitches is proud to announce that Andrea Walker of "Walker Quilting Company" will now be picking up quilts at the shop! Andrea's work is just stunning and we are so excited to have her on our team. Check out her website and you will be amazed at her gorgeous quilting! 

 Sassy Stitches is now open from 10: 00 until 5:00 during the week. Our Saturday hours will remain the same.  10:00 - 2:00  
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 . 
 We will continue sew days each month so keep an eye out for the dates!
 Most of our clubs have ended
 for the year but the fun will continue at Sassy Stitches!  We have a full July and are busy planning more classes for you. We've even started thinking about and planning for 2018!
Until next Sunday, have a wonderful week and come see us!

Karen shared her cute bathing suit quilt with us!  Oh my!
Sue shared her sweet wool project she completed while recovering. 
Don't EWE love it?

This beautiful dragon fly quilt was even prettier in person.  

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!!!!!)
