Cortez Quilt Company and More is excited to join forces with The Fabric Shop Network, who is proud to be a national sponsor of National Tie One on Day. On the day before Thanksgiving, women across the country will be celebrating the day by wrapping a loaf of bread, a pie, or another dessert 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?

National Tie One On Day is the perfect opportunity for
quilt and fabric shops to join in on a national charitable activity. It’s a great way to encourage customers to put a little give into Thanksgiving by reaching out to share their skills with someone who could use a kind word, a pat on the back, and a tasty treat for Thanksgiving.

We are so excited to be a part of this national program to bring a little cheer to someone by sewing them an apron, and then wrapping a loaf of bread,  apie, or some other dessert in it. Come sew your gift for your special recipient. If you know someone in our quilting community that could especially use some cheer, please call Cortez Quilt Company and More to put them on our list. We will then help deliver these gifts the day before Thanksgiving. For more info, be sure to call us!
