  • Christmas Quilts

    Posted on December 14th, 2018 Wrap'em No comments

    Today the local Fire Department came to pick up quilts for three families that they are helping for Christmas.  We were able to give them a special quilt for each child and for the adults in the families.  Each year, the Fire Dept  gives us a list of boys and girls with their ages for each family so that we can choose an appropriate quilt for each.  They are always very much appreciated.

    Thank you for helping us to make their Christmas a little brighter (and warmer too!)

  • We need Quilts!!!

    Posted on December 2nd, 2018 Wrap'em No comments

    With all of the disasters this year, we have been sending out a lot of quilts.  We had just sent boxes and boxes of quilts to Florida hurricane victims when the fires in California started.  Now we have emptied our shelves and there are still more requests, so we need your help.  So many, many families have lost everything and having a quilt to hang on to means the world.  We have also been able to send 168 stuffed animals that were donated, and we have requests for more of those too.  We tuck the animals in with the quilts.  They are so appreciated, but we are out of them, so if you have a new (or  like new) stuffed animal that needs a little one to love, please send it to us and we’ll get it into those little hands.

    Normally this time of year, we distribute a lot of quilts as the weather get colder.  This year, our shelves are empty and the requests are still coming.  If you have an extra quilt and have been considering donating it, now is the time.

    Thank you for all of your help,

    Ellen

    A box arrived in the mail from Shari in Montana.  Shari sent two large snuggly quilts and also some nice fabric that we will be able to use for backs on more quilts!  Thank you so much, Shari!

    We just delivered a load of donations to Rose Bud Reservation in South Dakota.  Besides quilts, there were lots of boxes of clothing, a bed, a large donation of baby formula, some cleaning supplies and lots of other things.  Thank you to everyone for helping us to help the people on the reservation.

    I hope that all of you mothers had a great Mother’s Day yesterday.  It was a beautiful sunny day here.  We had the sheep shearer come and shear the two sheep.  I’m sure that Mama Sheep thought that was a great Mother’s Day gift!  I think that they were happy to take off their thick wool coats in the sun.  In the afternoon I did some quilting and enjoyed the sunshine a bit. ——Ellen

    There are several groups either around the country or online that are supporting Wrap Them in Love with your quilts.  Please click on comments to this post and tell everyone about your group.  Where are you located? How did you get started?  How long have you been quilting for Wrap’em? Tell us something about your members.  Do you have any upcoming events planned?  Anything else you can think of to share?

    Notice that we now have three pages here.  There is this home page, an “about” page and a “quilt blocks” page.  I’ll be adding more hints and blocks there.  Eventually, I’d like to add a page about Wrap’em Groups, so I will copy and paste your comments from this post to that page in the future.  You can also email me with any special information that you’d like me to add there. ——-Ellen
