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.
