Spoolin' Around - May 19, 2016 Newsletter

Thank you for reading our newsletter! 
This week is Spring Quilt Market in Salt Lake City! Johanna is there and will be posting fun updates on our Facebook and Instagram feeds. Click on the links and follow along in real time, and then join us on Saturday, June 4, at 11 AM, for the Quilt Market Recap, where you'll see all the new trends, fabrics, and products in the quilting world. It's free, no need to sign up, and we'll have some door prizes!

Thanks to everyone who came out for our embroidery workshops and the Anita Goodesign trunk show! We hope you had fun and are inspired to try new designs, techniques, or notions with your embroidery projects.

As the temperature goes up and the traffic goes down, you know we're heading into south Florida's summer season! Staying cool in the air conditioning... this is when many of us are the most productive with our projects. We hope you'll check out our Annual Challenge and the classes we have to offer this summer, or stop by as you shop hop for the Row by Row Experience!

Mark your calendar-
the StitchCraft Challenge starts 6/1/16!
Yes, our StitchCraft Challenge starts soon! Every summer we challenge our friends & customers to make something using our Challenge Fabric. Sign up and receive 1/2 yard of the Challenge Fabric, then make something with it! It is free to participate; we just ask that you sign up only if you are honestly planning on turning in a finished project.

Entries are due by September 1, and then we open a "gallery" at StitchCraft with all the projects. We celebrate the participants at our fabulous tea later in September and award fantastic prizes in several categories such as Quilt, Wearable, and Objet d'Art. Seeing the amazing talent of the StitchCraft community is a highlight of our year...something we (and many of you!) have really come to look forward to each summer!! Come in starting Wednesday, June 1, to see this year's fabric is and sign up!
