I don't have a single one. I have PLENTY of work, but no one has specified that they need it by Thanksgiving.
In years past, I would do anywhere from 100 to 200 dining room seats during the month of November. So far this November, maybe a dozen or so.
I know that my wife's family doesn't have a formal get-together anymore.
Many people that I talk to go to one set of in-laws on the Sat or Sun before Thanksgiving, and the other set on the Sat or Sun after. They spend Thanksgiving day driving around looking for something open.
Are the big family Thanksgivings fading from the landscape?

Not in my family.  We do the works - starting with breakfast.  Sausage/bacon/egg casserole, hash browns, my homemade pear strussel coffee cake, my brother-in-law's pepper thick-sliced bacon and of course, mimosa's.  No lunch after that.  Then the usual turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce (homemade - not from a can), mashed taters and gravy, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole (the usual stuff with french fried onions on top), rolls, then my apple/pumpkin pies with fresh whipped cream, and whatever else people bring.  Some thanksgivings there are 25 of us.  Every "stray" without local family gets invited.  This year will be somewhat smaller due to work demands of several key family members.

With all parental units now receiving their just rewards in the the afterlife and no kids between any of us we're definitely low key here!  It's one of the few times in the year I actually do the cooking, too.  And the clean up.   ;)

I just met a Thanksgiving deadline yesterday.  10 napkins, a tablecloth, and a suede game table cover (in 2 colors) for a lovely home in a town just north of me.  Pick up is tomorrow sometime.

I got very busy these last 6 weeks. I finished at 6:00 p.m. yesterday, Wed.

I almost brought in some help but managed to get it all done myself.

I did have to turn down several request for getting it done before Thanksgiving.

One item I squeezed in was a very large bay window boxed cushion cover. I stayed late one day and came in early the next day to get it done.

My expertise is in furniture upholstery. I also do all aspects of sewing and cuting. Its funny you should ask because I just posted on another thread asking if there's a big difference in lets say a full blown recliner with bustle back, gathered pleats and all those moving parts and car interiors. Maybe you can fill me in.

I have no experience in marine canvass (Is it as hard as it looks?) although I'd love to learn.  Thanks for asking.
