Aloha! May 1st is Lei Day in Hawaii. I am Colleen Bell (aka The Embroiderist), a Shannon Fabrics Brand Ambassador, that is not from Hawaii, but I did grow up there so remembering all those island traditions is dear to my heart. Life is bright and colorful in Hawaii just as I imagine the warehouse is at Shannon Fabrics where they store all those lush fabrics that are Making the World a Softer Place.
There are many other celebrations during May. In the United States we lovingly celebrate our mothers with a special Mother’s Day. Most countries around the world have dedicated a day just to recognizing mothers, but many are not in May. Every month of the year has a country celebrating this day – January through December mothers are honored. While most of us cannot take our mothers to Hawaii or all those different countries to celebrate, we can use our sewing skills and give her a bright, cheerful gift.
