Canadian Thanksgiving happens every year on the second Monday of October. It is a time to give thanks for the harvest and other good things that have happened over the past year. This year it falls on Monday, October 8th. That makes this coming weekend Thanksgiving weekend!
Whether you are hosting your own Thanksgiving dinner, or going to someone else’s, this holiday is the perfect time to sew some little projects as gifts, or to make your home extra festive. And since it’s a long weekend, you might even be able to get all these projects done! Here are a few ideas:
