Sweater Weather Crafts

Is there anyplace better to be in October than in Southwestern Michigan? The weather, the leaves, the fresh air! A team member here said he loves this time of year because he can wear shorts and a sweatshirt at the same time! Love it! 

And of course it is sweater weather. Sweaters are our featured item in our "Make Something Today" projects. Look for the Make Something Today idea sheet and one of a kind sweaters at your local Southwestern Michigan Goodwill Store.
