WOW 2021!  After all our trials and tribulations with 2020, let’s hope 2021 is better!

2021 Distribution is set to begin on Tuesday, July 20 and the last day for the kids will be Friday, July 23.  We will be setting up on Monday, July 19 and boxing up on Saturday, July 24.  A schedule conflict at GCU is allowing us to be creative this year.

Mary has updated the inventory and Mike has placed it on the website.  It is looking great!  With the 2020 inventory we kept and the turn-ins from September-November, we are looking good.  We have set up a special display of tops, patterns and fabric.  As you know, tops are always in demand.

Due to the limited restaurant seating, we are unable to have a luncheon this year so we will have an Open House on Saturday, January 9 from 9-12 with no meeting.  We will have Open House like we did last fall, dropping off your inventory and picking up supplies.  Please wear your mask and understand that some are exempt from wearing a mask due to health issues.   We will monitor the number inside and may ask you to wait outside or in your car if we have too many inside.  The last 3 events went very well with the extended time frame, so hopefully it will continue this month.  

We will also have Will to sharpen your scissors and knives.  I cut into a pin with both pairs of my good scissors, so I really need Will!! If he can’t finish sharpening your items when you are inside, we will have chairs for you outside to wait for him to complete your items.

Back to School Clothing Drive qualifies for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit and although 2020 has ended, you can still make a 2020 tax deduction or tax credit and have it directly benefit Stitches of Love.  You can bring your donation/credit to our Open House and if you would like BHHS Legacy to match your donation, please make your check out to Legacy Connections and Mary will take it to be matched.

Thanks for everything you do for the kids!
