This is the event that is highly anticipated by everyone! Clean out your stash items you know you'll never use, and make room for new stuff as we hold our annual stash sale. Spend the day stitching with friends and buying everything needlework related including threads, kits, charts, frames, and more. It's like a giant needlework garage sale and you never know what treasures you'll find!

You price your donated items and we'll take it from there. Bring a sack lunch, cash and/or your checkbook and whatever WIP (work in progress) you'd like to work on. There will be door prizes and a tea cup auction as well. If you have a hand stitched item to donate to the tea cup auction, please let us know by emailing 

Proceeds from this event fund our chapter's education programs. 

This event will be held at the Perimeter Church located at 9500 Medlock Bridge Rd., Johns Creek, GA.
