It’s the wonderful time of year that’s full of merriment and charitable giving. In the spirit of giving, we’ve filled this issue with
quick-and-easy last-minute gifts that are fitting for family and friends.
One of my favorite gifts to give is an apron. Once I decide on a pattern, I can make an apron for anyone—males, females, neighbors and coworkers—just by changing the fabric and embroidery to suit his or her style. Turn to “Pampered Chef” on page 56 for inspiration and ideas for making an apron for everyone on your gift list. And read about National Tie One On Day, which CME is delighted to be sponsoring this year. I met with Ellyn Anne Geisel, founder of National Tie One On Day, and learned all about the cause. Her mission of giving to those less fortunate is truly admirable, and we’re proud to be involved in her effort. Visit apronmemories.com for all you need to know about the cause.
In this issue, we’re also bringing you great decorating ideas to spruce up your home for the abundant festivities you’ll host this season; see “Breaking Bread” on page 40. And of course we’re including stunning garments and accessories for those times when you really want to make a good impression; see “Sweater Sophisticate” on page 44 and “Festive Tresses” on page 48.
I hope this year was fruitful for each and every one of you, and I wish you the best as we enter 2010 with fresh eyes and revised to-do lists full of sewing and embroidery projects.
