Abstract:

Marcy is busy helping her customers make hand-crafted ornaments at her embroidery shop, the Seven-Year Stitch. But despite the yuletide bustle, when her friend Captain Moe asks for her help, she can't refuse--especially when the favor is to play the elf to his Santa for sick children at a local hospital.
