Stitcher Paradise is just three weeks away!  

As the first day of Stitcher comes closer, our excitement to see all of you continues to grow.  

We can’t wait to see all of you learning and creating with our educators. If you’re still thinking about taking a class, now’s your chance to sign up. We still have open classes with Bill Kerr, Teresa Silva, Jen Lee, and others.  

We know you’ll love anything you create! 

When you’re not taking a class, don’t forget to shop around our amazing marketplace. Remember to stop by the Happy Apple Quilts booth to say hello.

Stitcher Paradise have another great opportunity this year! 

During the month of July, the Hilton Carillon Park will also be holding a Christmas in July canned food drive. The food drive will help to benefit RCS Pinellas, an organization that has been working to help those in need get back onto their path of self-sufficiency for the last 50 years in Pinellas County.  


By participating in the food drive the Hilton is helping the RCS continue its goal of directing resources to people facing hunger, homelessness, domestic violence, and the lack of basic needs in the local community. Every donation will be sent to the RCS Pinellas and will be used to help provide nutritious food to families in need.  

Feel free to drop off any canned food to help with the Hilton’s food drive as you make your way into Stitcher Paradise.  

To further aid the work of RCS Pinellas, Happy Apple Quilts is having a QUILT SALE in the lobby of the Hilton during Stitcher Paradise. Dozens of Happy Apple Quilts' own model quilts will be available for purchase 25% of the proceeds from the QUILT SALE will be donated to RCS Pinellas.


While the Food Drive is the entire month of July, the QUILT SALE is takes place only during Stitcher Paradise, July 17th-20th. Tell all of your friends. The quilts are mostly wall hangings and lap or throw size quilts. They make great gifts and Christmas in July QUILT SALE at the Hilton is a great time to start your shopping.

We can’t wait to see all of you in a few weeks at The Hilton Carillon Park, 950 Lake Carillon Drive, St. Petersburg, FL 33716
