I found these boots on the shelf of a thrift store. They were boring black with black stitching, but the price was right. Now they’re part of a fabulous western-style purse!

Donna Krebill, a customer of BERNINA Sewing Centers of Kansas City, sent me some photos of Christmas boots her quilt guild made for their local women’s shelter. They’ve been doing this for several years, supplying over 200 boots every Christmas – nearly 250 for 2012!
