End of school parties, graduations, weddings, vacations and Memorial Day BBQ’s have probably taken up your calendar the past few weeks. But I hope you have found some time to plan your summer sewing projects, whether for the car, beach, poolside or mountains. As I have reminded you in the past, I shall once again – be very careful when leaving sewing projects in the sun or hot car. Dark fabrics can bleed when subjected to heat and humidity and it is very difficult or impossible to remove this ‘over dye’. This is also true for dark colors of embroidery floss or yarn. In addition, if you are a fan of beeswax it can melt in a short time when exposed to heat!
Remember that our Creative Sewing Market is in early September, Sunday September 8 to be exact. It will be at the Marriott Hotel in Birmingham as usual, and you may contact McCarn Enterprises for more information and to register.
From all of us at Bear Threads, have a wonderful and safe summer, enjoy some summer stitching and see you in August!
