Beyond The Stitches Newsletter - August 2022

Welcome to our monthly newsletter where we share what has transpired during the past month, upcoming events and information as well as a special discount just for you.
As we begin the Month of August it is hard to believe we are now going into the 8th Month of the Year.  Time flies by so fast. 

Thinking about how time slips away, the following unexpected passings are another reminder of how precious our time is with each other.  We ask that you please keep the families and friends of the following friends/customers in prayer as they mourn the loss of their loved ones.
>  The Family of Kim Harris - unexpected passing of Kim
>  The Family of Mary Redrick - unexpected passing of her grandson
>  The Family of Carole Jewell - unexpected passing of her husband
>  The Family of Maddie Prosachik - unexpected passing of her husband
Our Team met at 7:00 a.m. Sunday morning to discuss the results of the July Fling Shop Hop that was from July 15 thru July 30.  Thank you to our Team for all of your hard work in making sure the Shop Hop Block Kits, Finishing Kits and Snack Bags with Coupons were ready for our guests.  Thank you to Gertie for designing all of our blocks, writing the patterns and even providing a fabric cutting guide to our customers.  Our Team and YOU, our customers, made our July Fling Shop Hop a great success; we THANK YOU.  Below is a picture of what we chose to do with the Shop Hop Blocks as well as our Team that made it happen at Beyond The Stitches (missing in the picture: Trena (she is traveling with her husband- safe travels Trena).  We sold 113 Passports, provided 392 Quilt Block Kits and sold 227 Finishing Kits.


Our First Shop Hopper arrived July 15 at 9:00 a.m. 

Our first group of Shop Hoppers to turn in their completed Passports was on July 17th at 3:55 pm

Several others that completed their July Fling Shop Hop Passports were not too far behind. 
Several customers took advantage of participating in Serger Bootcamp with Baby Lock Educator, Denise Schober, where they learned the various stitches on their serger and the endless possibilities they can create.  Denise then provided a Serger Trunk Show were she shared some tips and techniques using the serger followed up by a Saturday session on Palette 11 software showing how you can design and produce your own embroidery designs.
We had a great time at Sew & Tell where there were some very inspiring projects shared.  If you have not joined us for Sew & Tell be sure to mark your calendar for 10 am the First Saturday of each Month.  You can enroll on our website or call our shop and one of our Team Members will be happy to enroll you.  Enrolling ahead of time allows us to have the proper amount of seats and gives you an extra chance at the drawing.  Here are some of the items shared this past month.

Even Dad (aka: Jim Squires) stopped by for a visit and got a hug from Judy S. 

Our Anniversary Sale week was filled with a lot of FUN, CAKE and special SALES all week.  It was great seeing you get excited about the special discounts and celebrate completing our fourth year with us.  

We really like to celebrate your success in your finished projects and we enjoy seeing what you create with fabrics purchased at our shop.   Here are just a few of the projects that we were able to celebrate with customers this past month.

We've enjoyed some fun classes in our large Learning Center this past month.  Be sure to check out upcoming classes on our website, to see if there are any classes you would like to enroll in. Here are a few pictures from recent classes.
