Sassy Stitches!


I feel like I've traveled the world this week!  Just like our Row X Row theme, I've been ON THE GO!  I went to Mauldin, SC Monday for a Carolina Shop Hop meeting.  Mom and I rode to Hayesville on Tuesday to see Rosie and Susan. Then I had the privilege of going to Canton, NC to speak at the Blue Ridge Mountain Quilter's guild meeting on Thursday. This group also surprised me with a very generous donation of pillow cases for  Ryan's Case for Smiles! Then Jerrie and I went back to Canton on Saturday to teach a Lonestar class on Saturday.  Jerrie did the teaching and I just enjoyed the beautiful fabrics and fun folks. Look at all the beautiful colors! Thanks so much for your hospitality!  Beautiful job, ladies!

Speaking of the shop hop, you are in 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! 

The Breakfast Club Meeting that was originally scheduled for Saturday, June 17th has been moved to Saturday, July 1.  
 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. You can order lunch or bring your own. Come sew with us!   Did I mention it's FREE ?!?!?  
Until next Sunday, have a wonderful week and come see us!

Janice Pope will be teaching a class at Sassy Stitches where she will share with you everything you need to know about binding.  You will need to bring something to bind so be thinking about that and make plans to save something just for this class!
Quilting since 1977, students attending her classes describe Janice as passionate, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and engaging. Whether teaching one of her simple quilt patterns, bag patterns, or a technique', novice as well as experienced quilters will leave with new insight and skills.
  An award winning quilter who has taught both domestically and internationally, Janice resides in Raleigh, NC with her husband of 35+ years and enjoys having two of her six grandsons nearby. Check out her website at Anything But Boring.

Show & Tell
 During our visit to the Blue Ridge Mountain Quilters meeting, we got to enjoy their Show & Tell!

Bonnie and her granddaughter enjoyed some sewing time last week.  Look at one of their finished projects!

I took a few pictures at Just Stichin' in Hayesville.  Rosie and Susan have worked hard and the shop looks AWESOME!  Here are some Lori Holt quilts that are SEW cute.

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!!!!!)
