May Newsletter from Stitches... in Charles City, Ia
Happy May Basket Day!

Remember the days when we spent hours making our little paper May baskets and delivered them to a friend's front or back door and went scurrying away hoping to get caught?!?  You younger Stitches... Friends may not recall those days but that was when girls weren't participating in sports, TV wasn't worth watching ("It's Howdy Doody Time") and parents would allow us to use the phone in emergencies only.  My how times have changed.

Some of us still love to take time to make special, handmade gifts and home decor.  It is all very fun and therapeutic and we encourage everyone to try something handmade.  Knit and crochet teaching goes on daily at any level, come give us a try.  We have some great yarns and patterns.

Enough about the good old days, let's talk about future projects, classes, fabric, yarn, notions and the All Iowa Shop Hop.
