Most of you that follow me on my personal Facebook, know that I am a retired Air Force veteran so “Quilts of Valor” (www.qovf.org) is dear to me.
As an textile and fiber artist, I like to contribute on a regular base, a handmade quilt to this Foundation that will be given to our wounded veterans.
To make this happen, I need your help. I will donate my time to design and make the quilts and I am asking you to consider donating: 100% cotton fabric in solid red, solid white, solid blue and patriotic print fabrics and help me with the supplies needed to make quilts to donate.
My husband will donate the money to ship the quilts to and from the long arm quilter and to the Foundation, where they will be given to our wounded veterans 🙂
How can you help?
- I set up a “wish list” on Amazon so you can see what I need and select what you like to donate. Link to Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/registry/giftlist/3ADF83YFQKMUF Amazon has my address on file.
- If you like to donate money to buy fabrics/supplies, please use this link: http://www.gofundme.com/quiltsofvalor
- If you like to send fabrics to me, feel free to send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you the address where you can ship to.
- If you have 100% cotton fabrics scraps (min size 1.5″x1.5″) in any color/print and would like to donate for this and other causes, please contact me for the shipping address by sending an email to: email@example.com.
All donations will be appreciated and will ONLY be used to make the quilts!
Here is a picture of the fabrics that were donated this week:
I truly hope that we can ship many, many quilts to “Quilts of Valor”
Thank you so much!!!
