Bob's Red Mill Aprons!

Well, it's been a rocky few days since Monday morning.  With the Boston bombings Monday afternoon, I never got back to post my Grand Opening giveaway (that I promised).  Now, my mind has gone a completely different way, so it will be a few more days until I do that post. In the meantime, hug your family and tell them that you love them, there's no time like the present!

Several of my blog friends know that I make aprons for Bob's Red Mill and have asked to see pictures. (I have done a couple of posts about the aprons here and here.)The BRM Visitor Center is a great place to visit!  It's their grain store, restaurant and bakery.  We often eat there for breakfast! We love eating upstairs in the loft and watching all the action in the store!





They also have lovely patio seating, but I don't have pictures, since it is not quite the weather for that yet!

The big cafe/store/gift shop (that I have just shown you) is down the road from their mill facility.  Last year they were opening a new little shop in the mill where my friend Christie gives tours. (If you are ever visiting, you really should take the mill tour!  Awesome!) This next picture is not my own picture, but was taken from their website, it's of the Mill Store where my aprons are sold!

Originally my personal friend, Christie-- BRM Hospitality and Tour facility manager-- asked me to make aprons for their new Mill Store. Here are two styles that I make for them:

Christie and I modeling aprons! 
All the aprons they carry have pockets with their logo on them, which we send out to be embroidered. Another day I will share the "making of an Apron".


And one final picture of the aprons in the shop:

Yellow Original style and a new style in green

I'm short of time today, so I'll be off,  'sew' . . . . 
you enjoy your day!

Those look great! Congratulations! We haven't been there since the Mill Store was there but we did eat lunch up in the loft at the other location. I'll have to get up there again and see your aprons!

Your aprons look great! I had wondered what the embroidery part was that you had mentioned from time to time. Now I know! Cute!
