We need your help!!!  Every year during Shop Hop, we have volunteers who spend the day with us. They stamp passports, hand out prizes, greet customers, and usually have tons of fun!  If you are interested in helping us out this year, please send me an email.  Include in your email the days you are available and also how many days you would like to volunteer.   THANKS!!

Policies, Our Charity Focus, and More Info
Here you will find our Sassy Cash Policy, Information about our Charity Focus, and other pertinent information.  We sure do appreciate your business!

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 or fabric donations for making pillow cases. 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!
Policy for Holding Merchandise for Customers
We are more than happy to hold items for our customers. We have a basket we keep behind the counter at the register for just that purpose. We will be happy to hold items until the next business day for you.  If you are out of town or there are special circumstances, please let us know and we will be glad to work with you.  I'm sure you understand that items left off the floor certainly can't sell.  Thanks!
