TIE ONE ON DAY™ Give from the heart on Wednesday – then give thanks on Thursday. This Thanksgiving Eve, Tie One On (an apron of course!) and bring joy to the life of someone in need.
Participation is easy and uplifting. Simply wrap a loaf of bread or baked good in an apron and tuck an encouraging note or prayer into the pocket; then present your offering to a neighbor, friend or person in your community who could benefit from your gesture of kindness. Tie One On – and put the “give” back into Thanksgiving.
“Women clad in aprons have traditionally prepared the Thanksgiving meal, and it is within our historical linkage to share our bounty.” EllynAnne Geisel
Tie One On Day™ is a win-win, for the participant and the receiver. And by embracing TOOD, you will make someone else’s day brighter.
EllynAnne and Retro Rad Chef Emily Ellyn Dish It Up for Tie One On Day
The magic words for making things happen, working things out and getting to the heart of people who matter: “Let’s talk it over, over pie.”
Penelope always loved to bake pies. Even as a Penelopette she shunned the Easy Bake oven and went right for the big kids’ kitchen. When she was older and got invited to a dinner party or a house warming, she would bake a fresh pie in a nice dish and bring it as a gift. Sooner or later someone at the party would suggest breaking out the pie. By the time the first slice was cut, everyone was sitting around the dish talking about baking pies, loving pies, and invariably, about love itself.
Penelope realized that a pie is a conversation-starter, a relationship-builder, a true memory maker. And that the real gift was everyone talking together around a table. That was the moment when Pie and Conversation became her passion.
“Bake a pie,” says Penelope, “and start a fresh, juicy conversation of your own.”

Amy’s recent book releases include The Magic Pattern Book and Amy Barickman's Vintage Notions: An Inspirational Guide to Needlework, Cooking, Sewing, Fashion and Fun, books that were inspired by the wisdom of Mary Brooks Picken, a pioneer in the domestic arts and international authority on dressmaking and fashion. Mary's sole purpose, which resonated so deeply with Amy, was to educate women, encourage their entrepreneurial spirit, and elevate the value of their work.
Through her blogs, business websites, and e-newsletters, and regular appearances on Sewing with Nancy, Amy inspires countless crafters to explore their own creative spirit and experiment with the newest sewing, fabric and crafting techniques. Amy also sits on the board of Enchanted Makeovers and has been instrumental in the success of the Sacred Sewing Room national tour.
Vintage Made Modern is Amy’s motto. She is constantly searching and collecting unique vintage pieces to inspire modern designs. In Indygo Junction’s apron collection you will find styles to suit everyone. From The Betsy Apron, a 1950’s inspired halter style, to the Easy-On Apron, which is inspired by vintage pinafores and available in adult and child sizes.

The passing of our grandfather inspired us to preserve his legacy. We rekindled our dormant grove of century-old Mission olive trees and enriched the land with fruit trees, a garden, bee hives and an idyllic vineyard. Atop those rocky hillside soils, we organically farm 13 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot vines.
We are blessed with the rich terrain to produce extra virgin olive oil and wildflower honey from our estate. Every harvest we experience the humble purity of our family's land. It is our pleasure to invite you to share it with us.
The heart of Tie One On Day reminds us of our grandparents and our blessings, and we are delighted to sponsor this day of kindness.

"This year is the first Thanksgiving without my mother. She passed away in April at 88 years of age. I am going to try to bring back family traditions with my daughter an granddaughters this year in getting them to drop their busy lives for one day and cook together and remember what we are truly thankful for. Giving up the digital stuff for just one day and really talking with one another. My mom would really love that, all the family together creating a meal. And of course that means I will make us all new aprons as well as one to give away with a great wrapped inside." Cyndy Lacey- -
"I am filling shopping bags with fresh boxes of crayons, construction paper, stickers, stamps and stamp pads, glitter, glue, watercolor paints, paint brushes, beads, confetti, etc., and am going to head over to the local branch of the public library. Let the kids have a good time like I used to! I can’t wait to see all the handprint turkey pictures posted in the window!!!" Debra S- -
"Last year I found out about Tie One On Day. I love the idea of cooking something and wrapping it in an apron and giving it to a neighbor or someone who is alone.
I was very surprised when I won the Bernina Bernette! I gave it to my granddaughter because she loves to sew, and she needed to upgrade from a machine I had bought for her that only had straight stitching. She has learned so much from watching videos on youtube and is not afraid to try new things. She loves the Bernina. She even showed her older cousin how to make a pillowcase with the machine.
Again, thank you for the opportunity to win this machine. We love your aprons, and we’ll be taking part in Tie One On Day this year and every year." Maggie Potter, Artesia, MS- -
"More often, I should sit down and write a note of thanks to others who make me feel so blessed by their love and friendship. Thank you for putting into action what became a more wonderful day because I shared a loaf of bread." Amy Bissell- -
"We have Christmas traditions that have developed over the years but hadn't really found any for Thanksgiving Eve until now. Thank you! We love your Tie One On Day." Becky Smart
"I just got finished with my apron yesterday and I have to bake the bread today and tonight I will take them (along with a gift certificate at a grocery store) to a family whose dad has been out of work." Bonnie Ellis- -
"I've gotten my husband involved and we decided Tie One On Day is something we will do every year with our son as a way to give back and teach him the joy of giving." Jennie Schaeffer- -
"I raided the local second hand store for old jeans and tattered old linens to make darling jean ruffle aprons I have 6 loaves and aprons to deliver and I feel so honored to a part of such a great give-a-thon." René Groom- -
"Hood River’s local 4-H groups heard about the Oak Street Hotel’s support of Tie One On Day, and on November 11th, they are going to have a huge apron making party. Then all the kids are going to wrap their aprons around food for the local needy and deliver in some way. TOOD is starting to catch on here and we’re thrilled to be a part of that!"
Adrienne Happy, Oak Street Hotel, Hood River, OR
"Last year we lost our home and everything in it to Hurricane Sandy. With our family scattered, we had a Thanksgiving dinner that was offered for free to survivors. In the ensuing months in our tiny rented apartment, I’ve started to sew again on a donated machine. It has been a year and our chances of going back home are bleak, but I know I can brighten someone’s day by making aprons to be included in the Thanksgiving packages that are being handed out by our church." Christine- -
"I plan to make an apron for a lady in my church who has started a group called Feed the Family. She has been giving classes in canning and ways to save on your food budget. She operates a garden cart where we can take or leave free excess produce, we are hoping to start a church community garden next spring. With the apron I will include something that I have canned all by myself!" Angel dye- -
"I LOVE sewing, wearing and giving aprons as gifts!
I’m happy to join in and celebrate “TIE ONE ON THURSDAY”. My precious friend, Marian, is in a convalescent home and she will be thrilled to have a visitor bearing homemade gifts.
Blessings and thanks for this opportunity," Carolynn Mintz
"I create & sell aprons for a living and TOOD is my favorite day of the year. This year, I plan on wearing one for my shift at the food bank, then leaving it behind with someone who touches my heart. Whether it’s a guest, or volunteer- someone who will carry the apron forward." Aimee- -
"I was once told that Thanksgiving was for giving thanks and gifts while Christmas was for religious renewal. It should be during Thanksgiving that gifts should be given as tokens of all the ‘thank-you’s’ you should say to those who helped you throughout the year. Giving to those in need is also a ‘thank you’ for being blessed with a kind heart and the ability to extend one’s hand in aide. I’ve tried using that lesson, giving to charities at Thanksgiving. This year I plan on donating fresh vegetables and fruits to The Mission of Citrus County. Of course I’ll have to include an apron too!" Marcia- -
"TOOD – what a clever way to recognize someone you are thankful to have in your life!! I am taking a sewing class – after an absence of 30+ years of sewing — and have found making aprons to be the most rewarding project thus far! I am making two – one for my dearest friend and the other for a new friend who has proven herself to be an “angel” over and over. One lives too far to take a baked goodie to so I will have to think of something else to “tie in” with the apron. The friend who lives nearby loves unique teas so I think some pumpkin bread, a special blend of autumn tea, and an apron will let her know how much her friendship has meant to me. Every time I “tie an apron on” myself – I hope to reflect on those I have been and am thankful for!!" Kathy Wright- -
Hood River News - 4-H’ers ‘Tie One On’ Oregon teens give from the heart::
"Since there was no school on Monday, Nov.11, due to Veterans Day, the Hood River County 4-H members gathered at the OSU Extension Building to decorate their own aprons, as well as cookies, to give to people of the community.
As 4-H Ambassadors planned for only 10 participants, they were pleasantly surprised when about 25 kids showed up, eager to help out in any way they could.
The event was created to preview the upcoming event “Tie One on Day,” on which you wrap a home-baked good in an apron and give it to a neighbor as an act of kindness. It traditionally takes place the day before Thanksgiving, to show the people around you that you are thankful for them." Read more..- -

"With one of my Sandy’s Sweet Nothings aprons using donated fabric from Indygo Junction and other donated aprons I will be donating the aprons to our local Winona Area Volunteer Service Food Shelf where they put an apron into someone’s food box to wear on Thanksgiving Day! This is something that I have been doing for several years. Thank you!" Sandy Erdman- -
"I’m going to give 10 wrapped gifts boxes with an apron, art supplies and encouraging note in each to the Salvation Army Gifts for Kids." Vanessa B
