National Sweater Day - February 7th, 2013

Have you registered for your National Sweater Day reminder call yet?

Every winter, Grannies across Canada give their grandchildren warm, beautiful sweaters. This season, I have decided to get together with my fellow grannies, grandmas, nonnas, and bubbies to remind you to turn down the heat and put on that lovely sweater your Granny made for you. You know which one I’m talking about.
