Happy Birthday to our sweet Rebekah! She is our youngest son's
girlfriend and we consider her part of our family. She works at Sassy Stitches a few Saturdays a month and has learned to make quilt tops like a pro! We love you sweet girl!
The older I get the more I learn that worrying about tomorrow is never productive and regretting yesterday is a waste of time. We don't live in either place. We live in the present. I've often heard that it's called the "present" because it's a gift from God - a fresh new day! My friend, Cindy, made this embroidery piece for me and I think it's a great reminder to take care of what's going on NOW. NOW is where we can make a difference and choose joy. I hope your days are filled with SEW much joy and fun that you can't hardly stand it. And when those tough times do come around, I've found that just a little needle and thread time can calm me down and give me some quiet time to pray and give it all to God.
My oldest son took this awesome picture during our crazy weather last
week. It's a scene between Highlands and Cashiers. And today we're supposed to get above 70 degrees!! CRAZY!
Have you ever wanted your own barn quilt? Would you like to display a quilt block on your home, your barn, your deck or in your home? Just because they are called "Barn" Quilts doesn't mean you have to have a barn to get one! One of our sweet customer's husbands makes these beautiful quilt blocks. We have two on display in the shop. He does an excellent job. Come by and see the quality workmanship for yourself. We are providing his contact information in case you are interested.
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
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 all of the 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.
Have a wonderful week and come see us!
