Double bonus – two postings in one day. That’s not actually what I meant by double bonus but it fits, so it’s really a double double bonus in this case. Not to worry, I’m getting to the point. I want to do something to help the Tsunami victims in Japan, I found this website about the “call for quilts for japan” explaining they are collecting comfort quilts to hand out to the Tsunami victims. They are in need of all sizes, anything from baby to adult. All quilts have to be sent to Colorado (details are on their website) by the end of April and they will ship them internationally to Japan.
So here’s my double bonus – for every finished quilt purchased in the month of April from us we will donate a finished quilt to the call for quilts for Japan. These will not be like for like quilts due to many of our quilts being one of a kind.
If you are interested, there several ways you can purchase a quilt from us. All of our quilts are available on our Etsy site, our website as well as if you’re local feel free to swing by and take a look in person.
* Quilts pictured were sent to a charity called Contagious Hope in November 2010 to be given to orphans as Christmas gifts
We will also be having a charity block-a-thon on Tuesday April 12th from 1pm – 4pm and Thursday April 14th 5pm – 8pm. During these times we will be making blocks that will later be pieced together to make the quilt tops. Fabric, rotary cutters and thread will all be supplied, all you need to bring is your machine. The Tuesday session will have light snacks provided, and the Thursday evening session will have soup available for dinner. Please call us if you are interested in attending so we know how many seats to have available or go to our blog page on our website to register online. We look forward to helping the Tsunami victims however we can.
