Tuesday Tidbits

Sent: December 9, 2008

Hi Stitchers!

Tuesday's Tidbits is about a new Project Bag we have in the shop - see it under Articles.

Don't forget our food drive for Manna - the barrel is filling up but we still have room for more. Bring your cans in through this Saturday, Dec 13th.

If you missed it, here's the info:
Holiday Food Drive
We arenow collectingdonations for Manna Food Bank-you can bring them in anytimeuntil Saturday, Dec13th.Asyou probably know, there is alot more needand fewer donationscoming in for a lotof nonprofit organizations in these lean economic time. Thatmakes my first time doingthis seem even more important. In speaking with the folks at the food bank, the number one need is powdered milk. They also request rice, pasta, canned fruits, vegetables, meats, oatmeal, grits, etc etc. This past year, they've fed 2500people a month and given out 45,000 pounds of food every month. I asked what I should have as a goal and was given a suggestion of 500 pounds. It seems small compared to the need but every little bit helps I guess. Please consider bringing in something to contribute - it's an easy way to help make a difference. If you're not local, please consider making a contribution to your own local food bank or if you want, send us a check and we'll shop for you.

The shop will be closed Wednesday, Dec 24th - Saturday, Dec 27th for the Christmas Holiday. I will be going up to North Carolina to be with family and celebrate Lindsey's First Christmas! I will be happy to be open on Monday, Dec 22nd if there are any requests for "appointments" or if I get enough emails from people planning to come. I'll let you know closer to the date. The shop will be open Tuesday, Dec 30 from 10-5 (regular hours) and Wednesday, Dec 31st from 9-2. We're closing early on the 31st to count everything! If you've attended the inventory partyin past years and want to come again, please RSVP asap. If you're interested in attending and helping count all the threadsand stuff, let me know!
