Sale, Sox, Sewing, Volunteer Opportunity – OPEN for all of it!

July 28, 2015
SH LogoI enjoy writing this newsletter to you. We have so much happening at the Stitch House to share… but this morning I wrote it, took a look and realized, WOW – we have A LOT happening. It is amazing to me all that we have going on.. and it is to the credit of our wonderful Staff. This last week we said a semi-goodbye to Kathleen and Michelle. They’ve both accepted full time jobs but they will remain at the shop at a much abbreviated schedule. This week we welcome Camille to our family and the great story continues…This Friday marks that last of the Cascade Sale. And Saturday kicks off the August Summer Sale! Im going to get a little creative with the August Sale so you’ll have to check out our Facebook Page Friday for a list of what’s on sale!

If you would like to volunteer to help “Bigs” and “Littles” learn some crafting fun, come too! Please RSVP – we’ll have plenty of crafting supplies and goodies to go around, you just need to bring your imagination!

Save the Dates! Thursday, September 17 – Sunday, September 20 2015… The Greater Boston Yarn Crawl is BACK!
bumperwww.annissaforboston.com
With August just around the corner, well actually – the end of this week, I am gearing up for some big campaigning fun! Would you be able to introduce me to your neighbors? Perhaps you could host a “Meet & Greet” in your home, your back yard or at a local establishment… all in an effort to meet voters, talk City issues and get me one step closer to winning this November. I’d love the help in my run for the Boston City Council 2015! To volunteer for this or to help in any other way, email me or call my cell 617-594-1841. Thank you!
