he November/December issue is devoted to the holiday season. I can’t wait to bake my way through “Raise the Bar” (page 4) and connect with my inner Santa by surprising everyone on my list with awesome finds from our Holiday Buying Guide (page 12). There’s even greater rewards giving to those in need during the holiday season. One organization, Kindquilts (page 11) sends seriously-ill children a beautiful handmade quilt that is made with love. The quilts are made by local sewing groups, if you know of a sewer that may be interested they can request five or more kits at a time to be sent to them for assembly. Now, that is true giving!
