Sassy Stitches SUMMER RETREAT Week 2!
This was week two and as usual, fabric was flying, fun was being had, and yummy food was being served. This project was small enough for some to complete their quilts! We even had two birthday girls attend! One of the best parts of our retreats is seeing the same project in all kinds of different colors. They all look totally different! Thanks to all who attended. We love you guys and always look forward to seeing you!
A big thanks to Jerrie for making the quilt, planning and cooking TONS of yummy food, teaching, facilitating and instructing the project, and for ALL of your time and effort. She is the hostess with the mostess for sure! I appreciate you so much Jerrie! Thanks to Teresa for being Jerrie's assistant and also cooking LOTS of yummy food. Teresa is our name tag maker extraordinaire. She is also an awesome cook and fabulous teacher. Thank you SEW much for helping, Teresa! See you all in the Fall!
Congratulations to Karen! She won a basket from the Carolina Shop Hop Passport Drawing last week! Yipee!

We are expecting lots of beautiful new fabric! The delivery dates were supposed to begin in July and that didn't happen. We're hopeful that these will start arriving any day! Here are some of the fabrics we're impatiently waiting on!

NEW Block of the Month starting in August!
"Reflections" by Kaye England
from her upcoming line, "Memories"
This Club is FULL!
We have a waiting list if you are interested.
Reminiscent of a scrappy sampler, this colorful queen size quilt (88x88) contains a variety of traditional blocks, from log cabins to Dresden fans. Each month for ten months, we will meet and you’ll receive directions and fabrics from the Memories collection by Kaye England for Wilmington Prints for a section of the 88” x 88” quilt. Join now for $10 and we will charge your credit card each month on the day of class or you may pay in full and save $50. As most of you know, shipping has been a nightmare and just about everything is delayed. Our goal is to begin in August and finish up in May, 2022. Attending classes is not necessary but we will schedule one or two for each month of the sew along. Your monthly kits will include all fabrics for making the top and binding. Backing is sold separately.
8 1/2 yards suggested.
Reserve your kit by calling the shop or stopping by!

It features everything you need for your Great Sewing Adventures Across the Carolinas. Many of our stores will also be selling the magazine online.
  • Magazines will be available in August at participating stores.
  • Besides an Official Passport and Map of Stores, the magazine contains patterns, articles and other resources for sewing and quilting.
  • The magazine notes special Shop Hop store hours and Regional and State maps that make it easy to plan your route.
  • Each person in your party will need a passport in order to register for prizes.
  • You’ll want to reference your magazine all year. Use it to find a quilt shop whenever you are meandering through the Carolinas. Be inspired by the patterns, projects and articles!
The name is similar to our Carolina Shop Hop but this is a brand new event! The "All Carolinas Shop Hop" spans throughout all of North Carolina and South Carolina. We are SEW excited to add this fun event to our calendar! Here is a link to the new website where you can find more information.
One fabulous, fun, and friendly quilt shop business for sale! Sassy Stitches has been my heart for 5 years now. I have made lifelong friendships and learned so much from all of you. My goal was to have a bright, friendly place for quilters to gather and fellowship, sew, and have tons of fun. It is a happy place where we care about each other and learn together.

The craziness that began in 2020 in our nation caused us to close for 6 weeks and of course that had an impact on my business. As we reopened after that 6 weeks, business slowly but surely has been picking up! We are in the middle of our 2021 Carolina Shop Hop and business is booming! Over the last five years, we have grown our customer base and the numbers show a substantial increase in business from the previous owner.

The new owner of this business will be stepping into a nice setup! We have everything ready for the first ever "All Carolinas Shop Hop" coming up in October and November. Your customer base is established and solid. I will be available to the new owner(s) to help if the new owner(s) so desires. I might even want to teach a little!

This business gets into your heart and soul. The people! Oh my goodness the people. We have cried with widows, we have prayed with those facing illness, we have rejoiced for new babies, and we have loved on many of you as we share in your quilting adventures and personal lives. You have also loved on us and it has been one of the most rewarding times of my life.

Should you be interested in becoming the new owner of this awesome quilt shop, please respond to this email with your contact information. Please don't contact me unless you are seriously considering purchasing.

Until I sell the shop, there will be business as usual. We will carry on with classes, add some new ones, set up our clubs, and see what the future holds. I could never thank you enough for supporting me and the shop over the past 5 years. Please know that each and every one of you have touched my life and I will never forget it! I give God the glory for our success. I've experienced more fun and love than I could have ever imagined. It has been a great "next chapter" after teaching school for many years.
