And let the sizzle begin - SALE!!!
June has arrived and the weather is hot, hot, hot.
June in Georgia reminds me why I miss my mountains so much - 90 plus on the thermostat with sudden heavy rain showers that are followed up with humidity. I swear that you could fry an egg on the pavement after one the showers!
June also brings vacation days - ROAD TRIP!! If you planning on traveling this year, don't forget about the Row by Row Experience. The fun begins on June 21st this year. Below you can find the important dates and pictures of both our row and license plate. I'm making the final adjustment to the pattern and hope to have them to the printers in about a week. Below is some information about our row. I have yet to think about a pattern title, so all suggestions are welcome!
Thread Bear Fabric's 2016 Row by Row
Our shop is located in Cumming, GA which is located in the North Georgia mountain area of the state. My inspiration for our row came from the region that we call home.
The mountains in this region are in the Blue Ridge mountain chain that ends in Georgia. The region is known for its ruggedness and scenic beauty and just north of Cumming is the Chattahoochee National Forest. The Cherokee who lived in these mountains called them "The Great Blue Hills of God".
Our row reflects the symbolism of the area:
The state flower of Georgia is the Cherokee Rose which borders one side of the row. Then the mountain that is shrouded by the clouds represents our North Georgia Mountains and is similar to Sawnee Mountain which is in our backyard. Finally the tree on the other end of the row represents the Chattahoochee National Forest that graces North Georgia.
