The office was all a-buzz on Monday with the news that Stampington was featured on CBS Sunday Morning! Commentator Conor Knighton claims to have “developed a soft spot” for Apronology and other unique magazines over the years. We would love to see proof of that on your coffee table Mr. Knighton—want to snap us a picture? Thank you for the shout-out, it was a lovely surprise!
You can appreciate Apronology even if your “tools of the trade” are more mixed-media than Kitchen-Aid-mixer. Just looking at the photos in the magazine makes me want to pull out my fabric stash and whip up something delicious in the kitchen. If you see a gal roaming the aisles at Trader Joe’s in an apron, that’ll be me—please say hello!
I am also proud to announce that Stampington was a sponsor of National Tie One On Day, an event that encourages us to pause during the preparation of our own meal and think about those who are in need of kindness. NTOOD was started by EllynAnne Geisel of Apron Memories in an effort to keep the sharing spark alive during the holidays.
“Like Apronology, National Tie One On Day is a once-a-year event meant to inspire others throughout the year,” said Beth Livesay, editor of Apronology. “I’ve known EllynAnne Geisel for four years, and in that time her goodness has shown through, not only as an apron aficionado, but in her power to encourage others to give back. As the editor of Apronology, I was proud to join my colleagues and the iconic EllynAnne in continuing this important tradition.”
Observing this day is simple: wrap a homemade treat in an apron, tuck in a sweet note, and donate it to a charity of your choice. Andrea Rangno, our Assistant Editor, organized the event and delivered our basket of treats to Laura’s House, an Orange County shelter that provides programs and services for women and children who have been victims of domestic violence. We are happy that we could lend a hand and help make their holidays a little bit brighter!
