Here we go Quilters! I’m going to schedule a day for making quilts for Japan at the shop. Let’s do April 16th. Everyone is welcome! We will sew from 10 am until about 5 pm. Come and make some comfort quilts to send to our friends in Japan. A LOT of our fabrics are printed in Japan. We need to open our quilter arms and embrace those in need. Carol Britt
Quilters Newsletter has long enjoyed a friendship with Patchwork Tsushin, a leading Japanese quilt magazine. So when Editor in Chief Naomi Ichikawa emailed to say her magazine is collecting comfort quilts for those impacted by the recent earthquake in Japan, we wanted to join the effort. QN will gather quilts from U.S. quiltmakers then forward them to Naomi and her staff, who will deliver them to those in need. (If you live outside the United States, email me as indicated below, and I will provide information on how you can send quilts directly to Naomi.)
Here’s how you can be part of this important worldwide response:
• Send quilts of any size from baby to adult to:
741 Corporate Circle, Suite A
Golden, CO 80401
• Mark your box: “Quilts for Japan.”
• Send quilts as soon as possible and no later than April 30, 2011.
• Enclose your name, address, phone number, and email address with the quilts.
If you have questions, please email Dana Jones.
