Christmas In July

Should You Bother With Christmas in July? 

Planning a Christmas in July? I sure am! Not only is it a wonderful time to spend with family and friends, it’s also a fabulous opportunity to hunt out all my Christmas machine embroidery designs! After all, why should I be limited to only creating with them once a year?

What’s Christmas in July All About?

 Yes, Christmas really only happens once a year on December 25th. In the Northern Hemisphere, it’s all about snow, ice and hot egg nog. Here in the Southern Hemisphere, Christmas is hot, sunny and more about eating ice creams. That’s one of the reasons I enjoy celebrating Christmas in July. I actually get to experience all the sights, smells and sounds which feature in all the Christmas carols. Have you ever thought how hard it is to “Dream of a White Christmas’ in the middle of summer?

Camp Keystone, a girl’s summer camp in North Carolina have the claim to fame of hosting the first documented Christmas in July in 1933. They sang songs around the Christmas tree and the jolly red man himself paid a visit. Since then, it has grown around the world and is celebrated in many different ways.



Quick Gift Ideas

I think Christmas in July is all about the decorating - if you do exchange gifts, you can't do much better than Darina who does a fantastic job of combining quick stitching designs.

Our Swirly Placemat and matching Swirly Coaster designs look great made with Christmas fabric and metallic thread. I also love how easy to sew and versatile these in the hoop projects are.
