Today we had another group of generous quilters show up to work on finishing the quilt tops made last month for hurricane survivors. There was lots of sandwiching, quilting and binding going on! We also had some quilters from previous groups, who stopped by to drop off quilts they had finished at home.
We are now making and collecting comfort quilts for Island of Dominica, Puerto Rico, Port Aransas TX, (Hurricane) and Nepal.(Earthquake) We are working with Mission of Love for the first 3 locations, and Engineers Without Borders (EWB) has requested quilts to take over the holiday break for Nepal.
The EWB students will hand-carry the quilts to a remote mountain-top village where people are still living in tents post-earthquake. Drop off or ship to arrive by Dec 15.
Mission of Love quilts can be dropped off at eQuilter, but otherwise ship directly to MOL at:
Mission of Love
2054 Hemlock Ct.
Youngstown, Ohio 44515
Our next Sewing Day will be Saturday Dec 9, from 9 am to 4 pm. We will be making new quilt tops (eQuilter will supply the Fabric!) and also sandwiching/quilting/binding the existing quilt tops here. Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this effort, here and around the country! XOXO
At the end of the day today, there were smiles all around, and we all felt so happy to have spent the day together making quilts for those in need. So if you need a little group quilt therapy please join us on Dec 9th.
We hope all your travels and meal planning goes well over the next few days…as we begin the season of joy and gratitude.
sharing your Passion for Fabric…
