When I accepted the invitation to travel to North Carolina and share my apron journey with the Triad Quilt Guild, I worried just a tad that given the date was Labor Day, attendance would be sparse. Well, fiddle dee dee! to that notion, was President Laura Skinner’s response to my concern, and was she ever right! Seems the Guild’s monthly meeting is high priority to the membership, even when it falls on a holiday. So it was no surprise to Laura nor anyone else
At the Triad’s meeting, I was also treated to an apron parade. Once everyone in their aprons got up and marched to the front of the room, Laura read the well-oft quoted poem, Grandma’s Apron. Of the many versions I’ve read and heard, this one has the sweetest last stanza. I took a video of the reading and have posted it here. I hope you enjoy it.
Tie One On…an apron, of course
