Pino's annual call for aprons



That little donkey is at it again - he needs some aprons!

Pino will host a June 21st Pie Party which is open to the public here at our farm. We serve fresh homemade pie and people and children visit with the donkeys in the Donkey Hug Area. Last year we tried collecting aprons from blog readers and then we sold them at the event - the money went into Pino's bucket and is earmrked for Pino's Private Pie Days he has for needy people or others needing cheer.

This year, we are collecting aprons again for the June 21st Pie Day. Sales will help fund our August 15th charity event to honor the hospice caretakers of Kaiser Permanante.

If you want to donate an apron, either hand made or one you see in an antique store, please do so! It will help Pino continue to make pie and bring cheer to many. If you make one, make sure to include a handtag of some kind so the buyer can email you or see more of your work if you want.

All apron donators will get a surprise from Pino later in the summer. Send apron by June 20th. Mail to : Pino, c/o Apifera Farm, 14710 NW Tupper RD, Yamhill, OR 97148.

I have just the perfect apron to send you. I'm only sorry I won't be there to see the whole line up. Do you post pics of them?????

Apifera Farm said...

That's great Paula! Yes, after the event if there are unsold aprons I post pics of them on Pino's Apron Gallery over at apifera-a-day.blogspot.com

Last year I got about 100 and posted ALL of them - so this year I will post the ones that don't sell at the event. But as they come in this year, if there are some that knock my socks off I'kk surely post them.

Count me in. I have been collecting interesting old dresses, skirts that I thought I would turn into aprons. I will wing some your way Pino!
