Do you ever wonder what a group of quilt shop employees do in their spare time? For Christmas this year the staff and I adopted a family from a local charity organization and began to be Santa's for this young family. The father (21) had just lost his job and the mom (20) was a stay-at-home mom with two small girls (18 months and 2 1/2). We had a ball shopping for these people.
When we had our staff dinner at my house, we wrapped all the gifts and had them ready to deliver the next week. One of the staff even donated a beautiful wooden rocking horse that was her grandson's. She said it had no one to ride it and she knew it would be well loved in its new home.
These ladies were more than generous with their time and money and hopefully, helped make the holidays happier for a young family. I am posting photos of the wrapping party.
