Do you hear the thundering roar of hooves moving swiftly through the dirt while thousands of people are on their feet cheering from the grandstand as they wait for what the outcome? Yes, it is that time of year again, The Kentucky Derby, and it is less than a week away.
It’s time to put on your biggest feathered hat, sip a mint julep, and place your bets on your favorite thoroughbred to win it all in the “fastest two minutes in sports.”
For those of you who are unable to make trek to Churchill Downs but still want to feel like you are there, JOANN is here to help. Here to help with the Kentucky Derby line of fabric available in store and online.
There is an array of fabric prints to choose from with various Derby themed items adorned onto each fabric. What you do with them is up to you. Some simple ideas would be a table runner or cocktail napkins. Or you can still dress to the nines with a Kentucky Derby tie (or two.)
One of our very own Team Members, Lauren P., an Ecommerce Merchandising Specialist created two amazing ties. We were so blown away we couldn’t help but share! Our Team Members don’t just craft for work, they are makers down to the bone!
Lauren is also making a Derby dress for her co-worker (I think she picked the right job)! Check out this sneak preview!
