While scouring Aunt Edie's attic for supplies to help Wendy with her latest project, Anne discovers a receipt for two dozen top-of-the-line sewing machines paid for with cash. Anne has seen only one sewing machine in Aunt Edie's house, and it's a different model than the ones listed on the receipt. Why did Aunt Edie buy so many sewing machines? What happened to them? Did someone take advantage of her? Meanwhile, when kindergartner Liddie notices that one of her classmates doesn't have a winter coat, her heart is touched and she sets out on a mission to collect as much clothing as possible for needy children in their community.
