We love it ! and we were super excited when we were accepted to become part of the Square Market website. There are tons of great products featured including : Autumn Ray Threads.

Happy Friday- I hope everyone had a great week (especially those who got the kiddos off to school) We still have about 3 more weeks left of summer and plan to soak in every minute.
Hopefully the rain will hold out here in Chattanooga .. the forecast looks less than good and based on how the past few days have been it will be down to the last minute whether we make River Market @ Tennessee Aquarium. Make sure you check out the Autumn Ray Threads facebook page here , for the update on if we show or not.
I am super excited to be offering a very limited amount of the "My Heart Belongs in Chattanooga" Key Fobs !!!
These will be available starting tomorrow at the River Market (weather permintting) and Sunday (if there are any left) at Chattanooga Market from 11a-4pm. These are a test product for us- depending on feedback and popularity we will offer these on the website for Any State, Any City ordering... Stay Tuned !
I hope everyone is having a great summer. We have been super busy with double-day weekend markets at the Chattanooga River Market and Chattanooga "Sunday" Market. It has been such a pleasure to meet all our new customers and introduce new products- which have been a huge hit !

Other than markets we have had a pretty laid back summer .... the normal -
Married this little hottie on July 11. Michael & Brandy Myers.
... and then Tyler Ray decided he would break his leg and be casted for 12 weeks.
The only good thing about Tyler breaking his leg is I have a little talking buddy while I sew to get ready for fall shows & markets. We are going to be visiting some new areas- so if you live near Knoxville, Memphis or Atlanta ....
WE ARE COMING YOUR WAY !!
Check out our current show schedule in the right sidebar which includes our Fall Show- Germantown Festival near Memphis. We have heard great things about this show plus they have weenie dog races .. what could be funner that that ?
This year I am super excited The Chattanooga Market will host/manage Signal Mountain's Fall Hodgepodge event. This will be the 1st year for Autumn Ray Threads to particpate- our set up will be outside.
Friday October 5 10a-5pm / Saturday October 6 10a-5pm

Thank you to everyone who has stopped by Autumn Ray Threads during the past 2 weeks at The Chattanooga Market. Each year I am completely blown away by you guys who continue to love what I create and bring each week.

... and I couldn't resist adding TyRay's pic- he has become quit the poser.
One of most favorite things about sewing is : the people who love what I make. I have the best customers in the world- who also have the most adorable children in the world. Over the last 3 years I have sewn items for people who literally live right next door to me all the way to moms in Australia & one little girl in Paris (seriously- the child lives in Paris, France and she's wearing good ole' Ringgold, Georgia hand made dresses)
Last year during Oktoberfest at Chattanooga Market I met the sweetest couple ever. Seriously, they were so cute together and I just instantly clicked with them. Rachel and Justin live in Murfreesboro, have the cutest little boy and one on the way. Here is a little write-up Rachel wrote and Justin photographed.
At River Market last year I met a sweet friend who bought 2 American Girl doll dresses for her best friends daughter. Bella was pre-mature and so tiny regular baby clothes would not even fit. The next week I met Bella at Chattanooga Market wearing her American Girl Dress- I ended up making her 3 more to wear throughout the summer.
One year later- she is in a regular size Auty Dress on the beach.
... and then the famous Harper Kate. She is my hands down cutest go-to model ! I was amazed by the pictures my cousin, Sarah Holland Photography, snapped of her over a year ago-
sew.... of course when she requested a special Amy Butler Orange Bow Tie for her new dog Whiskers.. I got to sewing..
and props to Heather for snapping this magazine worthy photo:)
Very Rarely do my own kids make it in the blog actually wearing Autumn Ray Threads- here is Tyler Ray sporting the Bow Tie for our Mommy/Son date Sunday.
... and then my all time fave Mommy/Daughter Auty Top customers. I met these lovely ladies in Savannah over Labor Day - they were so excited about their Autys they had dad do a impromptu photo shoot in the hotel... love it !
