    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!)

  • So many quilts needed!

    We have been so busy finishing as many quilts as we can.  We have sent a lot of quilts to fire victims from Paradise, California already, but they need a lot more.  With the last shipment, we also sent stuffed animals that had been donated, and they could use a lot more of those too.  There are thousands of people who are homeless after these fires, so anything that we send will be a huge help.

    We are going to try to get as many quilts and stuffed animals to them before Christmas, but even after Christmas, we’ll send more.  It would be nice for some of the little ones to have a quilt or a stuffie to snuggle with on Christmas Eve.

    So please, if you have an extra quilt or two, or a new or nearly new stuffed animal send them to us right away at:

    Today we received a box of 10 quilts from Karen in Lincoln, NE.  Thank you so much!!  She also sent some quilt tops and fabric for backs.  Everything is much appreciated!    We are working hard to get enough quilts for requests for this month.  I am busy quilting.  Thankfully several of you have donated quilt tops, so there is plenty that need to be quilted.  It makes it so much faster and easier when we can grab a top off the shelf and start quilting.  Yesterday one of our binding angels stopped in to see if we had anything that needed bindings, so I sent 4 or 5 quilts with her.

    I am watching for the mail to see if more quilts come in from quilters  around the country.    Quilters are such amazing people, I know that we can pull together and get lots of quilts to the little ones who need them.

    Keep Quilting!!

  • We need Quilts!!!

    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
