Superstorm Sandy Quits & Blanket Drive

I know that I have mentioned this Quilt and Blankets Drive a number of times on Facebook, but I have been among the missing here..

If you could help it would be great!

Because as if the devastation from Hurricane Sandy wasn’t enough, NY & NJ, which where the areas that where hit very hard are experiencing snow and really cold temps, the winter temps that had not been around. 

There are many people who are still homeless or have no power. 

While there are quite a few efforts in the works in the quilting community nationwide to gather quilts and blankets for these hard-hit areas, one of which is being spearheaded by Victoria Findlay Wolfe 

has devastated much of our area.
Homemade or Store Bought, ANY SIZE.

Victoria is a friend of a friend, and that connection makes me trust that this is a valid effort to help. I have started to collect quilts and blankets to support this effort. 

I have been going through my closets and pulling from my quilt closet. Several people who saw my post on Facebook earlier have already contacted me. These quilts and blankets don’t have to be new (but please…in good condition and freshly washed!) and can be handmade or store-bought, all sizes are needed. If you are sending a quilt/blanket, please make a label with your name and email :)

When mailing them:

I know that I have been among the missing and we did not suffer as much as NY & NJ, but life has gotten busy and my blog has suffered. Thank you all who continue to check in and see if I am still here :)

Ciao for now! J
