Nancy Zieman talks about National Tie One On Day, the day before Thanksgiving

 

Give from the heart on Wednesday November 21—then give thanks on Thursday. This Thanksgiving Eve, Tie One On (an apron of course!) and bring joy to the life of someone in need.


Participation is easy and uplifting. Simply wrap a loaf of bread or baked goods in an apron and tuck an encouraging note or prayer into the pocket; then present your offering to a neighbor, friend, or person in your community who could benefit from your gesture of kindness. Tie One On—and put the “give” back into Thanksgiving. There’s also a Tie One On Day card that you can print from the website and include with your gift.

EllynAnne Geisel is the founder of Tie One On Day and has this to say about this unique approach to Thanksgiving. “Women clad in aprons have traditionally prepared the Thanksgiving meal, and it is within our historical linkage to share our bounty.”

The randomly selected winner of a copy of The Absolute Easiest Way to Sew, from Nancy’s Notions, is Shirley C.

Her comment is: What a clever way to put on a waistband! I have wrestled with waistbands in the past and this looks so much better. I am really interested in other tricks of the trade and look forward to reading Nancy’s story.
