The Most Wonderful Time of The Year

The holiday season is upon us!!! One of my favorite holidays is right around the corner.  THANKSGIVING  Time to take stock of all that I am thankful for. I am very blessed with so many things.  A warm home, a full pantry and fridge, are just a few of the things most of just don't think a lot about. There are so many families in our community that need help with the basics.  Here at Aunt Mary's, I try to help.  SO..... it's time for the annual food drive.  Let's kick it off in a big way.  This week end, Friday through Sunday, Bring in a donation for the local food bank and take 20% off all Yardage,  50% off selected Halloween fabrics, and 50% off clearance fabrics (one yard minimum cut)  What kind of donation you might ask?  Well...... Non perishable food, of coarse, however they always are in need of things like shampoo, toothpaste etc, My friend Deb likes to bring in these stuffed animals with a small quilt wrapped around them.  We have had people make "Birthday Bags".  A pretty gift bag with a cake mix, frosting and small toys.  I can't tell you how much these things make the people at the food bank smile.  There are so many kids that get so little on their special days.  So use your imagination!  What ever you bring in will be greatly appreciated. Happy holidays!! Hope to see you this weekend!!
