Quilts for Japan
I have been reading different blogs and there is a great need for Quilts to be send to Japan, the Author of the Japanese Quilting magazine Tsushin, Naomi is asking for quilts. The three quilts in the picture are going tomorrow, they are quilts of mine and I hope they give warms and comfort to some ( the bright one was my sons and I hope another little boy will get some joy, the Toile is a pattern of mine I used to teach and the sampler is my little beginners class sample)
As I have got many tops here for the Flood appeal and have given some already and knowing there are many groups making quilts for us here, I have decided that I can spare a few quilts and get them ready to send to Japan also. They are asking for any quilts even used ones, so if you have a quilt and would like to give it either send it here:
Editor of Patchwork Quilt Tsushin
Patchwork Tsushin Co Ltd.
5-28-3,Hongo, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo
Japan ZIp 113-0033
or sent to me and I try and get them there, email me if you like my snail mail addy.
There are nearly 500 000 people in shelters and it is cold.
ps. or maybe someone could donate some Batting ...... and I am thinking to have a little working bee here at my place to add some bindings maybe the 29th or 30th March, email if you can spare a few hours.
