When I first opening the Stitch House in 2007 I thought when we got to May, things would slow down and
summertime would be quiet. Well, I was wrong! Things are happening and bustling here and I hope you’ll be a part of it! We aren’t going quietly into Summer, in fact, we’re gearing up!
In June we have a number of great events, including our first response to our fantastic MEGA Sale just wrapped up. We are ready to introduce our first new yarn and want to have a party to do it! I hope you will join us for this special Private Yarn Party on Saturday, June 14 from 6-8pm. For this party we will give you a special, private preview of a local yarn by Diane Ivey. Some of you might know Lady Dye Yarns it but we want to introduce in a special way to Stitch House. This is a invite only party and we are limiting the guest list. Please RSVP. We are asking for a $10 reservation fee that you are welcome to use towards a purchase that evening. We’re also providing goodies, and gifts! You know I love a good party – and this won’t disappoint!
We also have so many workshops happening and planning more for the Summer months. Saturday June 7 will be a busy one including a Serger class, the iPad Goodreader sessions and the Magic Loop workshop. Then Sunday is Hat Design class and the first sewing session of the Summer Quilt Series! And don’t miss our special day with Mari Chiba on Saturday, June 21. I hope you’ll find something to do with us!
Please read the rest of this week’s email for all that’s happening and come in to visit us! Just remember we are now closed Mondays through Labor Day.
Until I see you again,
