Hurricane Quilts?

Is anyone collecting quilts for hurricane relief? Angela asked if she could send me some, but I don't know of any organizations that are strictly providing hurricane assistance. I also tried to reply to Angela's comment,but I get that no-reply@blogger.com thingy because she doesn't have her email address visible in her profile. So I can't reply to her.

***Note to all commentors***
I can't reply to your comment unless you have your email address visible in your settings! When you log into blogger on your dashboard page, click where it says "edit profile" on the left side of the page. Then check "SHOW EMAIL ADDRESS" in the 3rd line down, and at the bottom of the page click SAVE CHANGES! This way, when you comment, all I have to do is click reply in my email and I can get back to you. :cD


I'm hoping someone will comment to this post on WHERE she can donate.

I finished the wedding quilt today..YAY! It is heading toward Aiken SC as I type this. At least they said it would be there "next day".

I also finished the binding on Old Tobacco Road..along with the sleeve AND label! I was tickled by the label fabric...it has cuban cigars! too funny. Instead of Tobacco Road, it's Tobacco..ROLLED..*hehehe* The fabric was sent to me by a quiltvillechat member and I'm tickled to include it in my quilt. THANK YOU!

I also finished the hand stitching of my lil amish crumbie. Pics shown a few weeks ago. Binding is the next step up. Little bits of progress here and there, and no pics to show you today. Maybe tomorrow? :cD

Faye and Mike Mascarenas in Tennessee started a non profit group called quilters4quilters.org . Their church started going down to Mississippi after the last hurricane and helping out. They donate anything craft, sewing or quilting to hurricane victims. You may want to contact them.

Sorry, I don't know of any organizations collecting quilts for hurricane relief. I will keep my eyes and ears open. Can't wait to see your Tobacco Road!

You are such a tease! You know we are all waiting to see pictures!

The American Red Cross accepts blankets - and... also quilts. You could ask your local ARC and see if they have information on where you or they can send them.
Good luck!

Bonnie,
I'm a quilter located in Galveston County, 25 miles inland from the island. I posted on my blog that I will be happy to accept donated quilts and give to local organizations that can get them into the hands of the people who need them the most. There are hundreds of relief teams that are going house to house and assisting folks in tree removal, debris clean up, etc. IF anyone would like to entrust their quilts to me to get to these organizations they may visit my blog quiltsnkaboodle.blogspot.com for more details or email me at karen@quiltsnkaboodle.com Once our Island Quilter's Guild members have recovered themselves, the guild will be able to accept donations, but for now I'm operating as the good Samaritan and taking this task upon myself. Today is our one month anniversary of Ike and there are numerous people still without power and basic living necessities. Your prayers are still needed and appreciated.
