News from some of our Growers:

I missed a Growers Update this morning! She has some beautiful and very useful items for yourself or as a gift.

Thweatt Things: I’m busy sewing up these useful and beautiful holiday oversized hot pads. It’s one of those items that you didn’t know you needed until you have one! Ever wish for a bigger hot pad to accommodate casserole-sized dishes on your counter or table? Tired of using towels underneath your holiday foods? These quilted oversized hot pads are perfect for casserole and larger pans. They have 2 layers of batting (one of them is an insulating product that helps keep hot things hot or cold things cold), the second layer is cotton batting. So, not only is your table protected but it helps your dish stay at the desired temperature. Perfect for gift-giving to those cooks on your list or for a hostess gift during the holiday season. I will be adding more fabric choices as I get them made. Look for them under crafts: cozies and hot pads Caution Not for microwave use. Unlike bowl cozies, these are for table use only.
