• Quilters Gather to Share Apron Stories

    Posted on July 30th, 2013 Cindy No comments

    The Ellwood City Ledger reported a group of quilters that gathered in Ellwood City, PA to share stories about their aprons. There were monogramed and embroidered aprons, old aprons and new. One apron was made by Mother before her daughter was born, another apron was made by a sister living in Scotland. And one apron told this needlepoint message: “This food is cooked with pride and love and served with my good wishers, and I don’t want praise, but would like help with the dishes.”

On the day before Thanksgiving, women across the country will be celebrating the day by wrapping a loaf of bread in an apron, tucking a prayer or a note of encouragement in the pocket, and then delivering the bundle to someone in need of physical or spiritual sustenance—or both. What could be nicer than receiving such a gift—and handmade at that?
