Ni karibu wakati

The time is almost here!

Meeting Time:  Saturday, January 20th, 12:00 pm

Meeting Location:  Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - Jambo House

We're so excited to see you all at the 2024 Stitch the Magic event this Saturday!  We've been watching the weather and it seems to change hour by hour.  We have 2 options and we'll just have to wing it that morning.  We will post Mr. Bunny at the lobby entrance to direct you where we'll be.

(click on map to enlarge)

Option 1:  The Uzima Pool area (down the elevator/stairs and follow the signs), behind The Mara quick service restaurant.

Option 2:  The Sunset Overlook on the left side of the lobby behind the check-in desks.

We've got some fun activities in store for you all, including ways to earn more chances to win one of the door prizes!  We highly encourage everyone to bring their knit or crochet project for some show & tell and social stitching.

The Mara is a quick-service restaurant offering a variety of snacks and meals.  And the pool bar opens at 11:00 in case you enjoy a little adult beverage during social gatherings (I know I do!)  Everyone is welcome to purchase food and beverages to be consumed during the meet-up.

For those who have not already picked up their pre-ordered Pride Rock Packs, we will have them at the event for you to collect.  For those who have ordered T-shirts prior to the first deadline, we'll be distributing those there as well.  There are public restrooms close to each of our possible locations for a quick change, if you so desire.

If you'll be joining us on Sunday, January 21, 2024 in the Animal Kingdom Theme Park, please fill out the Theme Park Excursion Registration form with your contact information so we can let keep you up to date on all the details:  When and where to meet us, etc.

And finally, where to park for free to get to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge?
  1. If you are a annual pass-holder, you can park at any of the theme parks and catch the resort bus to AKL - Jambo House.
  2. You can park at one of the Disney Springs' garages and catch the bus to AKL - Jambo House.  The bus ride itself is 30+ minutes and can be standing room only at times.  Please allow an extra half hour or more to wait at the bus station in addition to the us ride so you won't be late and miss out on some of the fun.
  3. You can try your luck at Animal Kingdom Lodge itself.  Drive to the AKL main gate and kindly ask the gate guard for entrance.  If there is no other big event, or if they are feeling generous, they may let you park as a day guest.  You can tell them that you are going to the Mara restaurant, or going to the gift shop.  Since Stitch the Magic isn't an official event, they will not recognize it as such, so any mention might get you a blank stare.  If that doesn't work, parking at Disney Springs is your best option, however, please allow yourself plenty of time, just in case.
Looking forward to seeing everyone very soon!

The Circle of Life...Choosing Conservation

The Beach Bunnies and the Dizzy Blonde all feel strongly about giving back to our communities through conservation.  And towards that end we are both donating a portion of our proceeds to this year's chosen non-profit, Delilah's 2nd Chance Rescue.  But we want to do more.  So, this year, we are trying to raise more funds by selling event T-shirts.  100% of the proceeds will be donated to Delilah's 2nd chance.

The t-shirts are 4.2 oz, 52% airlume combed and ringspun cotton/48% polyester.  They are pre-shrunk, lightweight and oh-so-very soft.  The shirts are relaxed fit (unisex) and feature tapered shoulders, a comfortable crew neck with a tear-away tag, side seams and short sleeves.  In staying with the theme of this year's gathering, Disney's Lion King, we chose a heathered brick shirt with a Stitch the Magic emblem done in goldenrod screen printing.

Arrive at the event and/or park excursion in style!  

T-shirts will only be available through pre-order here.  

In order to have the shirts produced and then shipped in time for you to wear to the event, the last day to order will be December 28, 2023.  So don't miss out.  Order your shirt today!

Hela hey mamela

My favorite song in the entire movie "He Lives In You" scores Simba's transformation moment from carefree  youth, to regal adulthood: when Simba comes to terms with and then relinquishes his heavy burden of guilt and regret, he accepts his responsibility, his birthright, and his freedom.  Such anguish...such joy!  When first I saw it, it took my breath serious and somber one moment, and then light-hearted and playful the next.

Our final piece of the 2024 Stitch The Magic Collection comes from Ann of Twin Mommy Creations out of Winter Haven FL.

"Remember Who You Are" is beautiful set of 5 adorable stitch markers and a pin/marker holder.  Each stitch marker is laser engraved on 1/8" maple ply and then attached with round lever-back fasteners so they can be used as knitting stitch markers, row markers or crochet markers.  They depict whimsical mandrills, hyenas, wart hogs, merekats and lions. The pin is also laser engraved on 1/8 maple ply and painted with alcohol ink for a lovely sunset effect.

The back of the pin features a pin tack back and rubber stopper.  This set is extremely lightweight, and can be worn on your person as you stitch in your favorite Disney park, or attached to your project bag so you are never without it.  Wherever you choose to attach it, this set is sure to turn some heads!

Presales will be opening very soon, and remember, there are incentives to purchasing the entire collection, which will be revealed in our next post, along with a link to the pre-order site.

 Registration is now open at the Beach Bunny Yarns websiteSpace is limited, however, so make sure you register early, and save the date.

What Stitch The Magic collection would be complete without a truly amazing project bag?  This year we have teamed up with Amanda aka ybSquare in Tampa, FL, and just wait until you see what she has in store for you!  

This is a great bag for on-the-go fiber arts!  Whether your chosen fiber arts expression is knitting, crocheting, weaving, drop-spindling, or any form of embroidery, this bag is the perfect size for everyone!  The measurements for this bag are 3 3/4 x 6 1/2 boxed bottom; 11 1/2 inches tall and 20 3/4" around.  Measurements may vary up to 1/4".

Safari Project Bag

From the artist:

        "For this fun collection inspired by The Lion King, I went with first impressions.  When I first think of the movie, I think safari and then oasis.  I found both of these awesome prints on Spoonflower.  The first is a cool tribal pattern with safari animal silhouettes and the colors were perfect for what I was looking for.  The second represents the oasis that Simba spent his youth in and where Nala found him.  This print is full of lush vegetation and the silhouettes f young lions or lionesses jumping throughout.  Since these bags are complete reversible, you can pick which wild side to show each day."

        "A little bit more about the bags:  as these are handmade, the fabric placement will vary, for the oasis side, this will be less noticeable, however, for the safari side the animals will not be in the same place on every bag.  Each bag has a cotton webbing handle for wrist wearing, a carabiner for clipping to most anything and a cord lock on the drawstring.  It is also machine washable, just remove the carabiner and wash on delicate."           ~~Amanda

Yes you read that right...IT IS COMPLETELY REVERSIBLE!

Pre-sales will open once the entire collection has been revealed...which is to say, very soon!  And remember, there are bonus incentives for getting the entire collection!

Registration is now open at the Beach Bunny Yarns websiteSpace is limited, however, so make sure you register early, and save the date.
