Welcome to Nina’s Notions!

I was recently asked about the products in the store.   For those of you who don't know, I am revamping the store to carry items you can't get at the big box stores.   Dare 2B Artsy, Peddlers Den, Gerda Steiner, Emily Moore Designs, Scrappy Boy, Taylored Expressions, Alt E New,  just to name a few.  Do you have a favorite brand you struggle to find?  Let me know and I will see if it is something we can carry.   I am always looking for suggestions.

A portion of the sales from this party will be donated to the organization, Giving Paws.

For those of you unfamiliar with this organization, here is some information about what they do and their mission.

The vision of Giving Paws is to ensure best practices are implemented and followed for support animals in the community and the care of animals.

The mission of Giving Paws is to serve the community with trained support dogs and support programming which ensures the care of animals.

Their founding Executive Handler takes care of

Clinton County's first Canine Advocate (court dog). In this work, many great dog lovers ask about how to train their dogs and how their dogs can work in the community.

In 2022, along with other community dog lovers the Leaders of the Pack (LOP) formed.

Collectively the LOP has many years of experiences in nonprofit work, dog handling and training, business, education, and community service.

In 2023 their first support dogs got their Paws on the Ground in the community, and they launched Paws & Friends local vendor store to help fund their mission!

2024 they added their Pet Partners Fostering Program, a unique pet fostering program to serve the community.

What does your donation support?

???? Their Dog Pack sharing dog joy in the community

???? Expanding their ability to serve through growing their Dog Pack and increasing their Dog Houses

???? Extensive background check for all agency volunteers and ensuring they have support and training

???? Care of their Rainbow Memorial Bridge hosted at Briggs District Library

???? Pet Partners Fostering Program to support humans facing temporary difficult times (currently in development)
