Pam B. just asked me if I accept quilts year around or just during times of need. Great question Pam and I am so glad you asked it.
of Hope - Quilting 911 collects quilts year around, we always have a
need for adult sized quilts male or female but would love to receive
unisex and male quilts as we always receive plenty of beautiful feminine
now at this time, I am stocked up on infant and quilts for little ones,
so if you would like to send quilts to a group other than Project
Linus, I ask that you send them to Quilts of Compassion out of Toledo,
Ohio, they are disaster relief and have needs as well.
do make quilts when I can and have some unknown medical issues going on
at this time, sometimes I just cannot do anything at all but rest all
day on the couch. Other days I can do a little at a time and still other
days I can do more.
I do all my quilting on a small table and machine and have no help
except all the wonderful quilts that you all make and send to me to hand
out. You are amazing!
are seriously looking into setting this up as a Non-Profit, but right
now, I need someone who can do a projected 3 year budget and I need all
of you to work as our public relations person.
am one person, but you each have blogs, friends, churches, quilt
guilds, know people who knit and crochet, grab our button and place it
on your blog, Tweet, Instagram or Facebook about us.
have diligently attempted to get my local newspaper, radio and
television stations to do a story about us to no avail. I have contacted
the Today show, the newspaper in Arlington, WA, National Public Radio
all to no avail.
need each of you to share our story, help us get the word out and while
you are doing that, I will continue to do my part to get our website up
and working, to get quilts out and to spread the word.
have fliers if you would like a copy to take to your local quilt shop
and this summer, I pray I can travel to various quilt shops in
Washington and Oregon and pass out my fliers, but you are my feet.
will be traveling to Arlington and Oso this week-end. Dropping 30
quilts off for families at an organization set up for the families known
locally as the HUB. I will also be donating 6 to the amazing 6
volunteers who have been there every day all day long helping out.
there, up to Oso Caring to be a part of their healing and fund raiser
and just enjoy the day with my grandchildren. I am praying someone from
the media will be there and get our word out!
