Cover Colorado: Quilts for flood victims
The following was emailed to me, and I feel compelled to pass the info on to you.
If you have any questions, please contact the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum at the phone number listed below.
Even though many of us can’t physically help the nearly 1,800 Colorado families whose homes have been destroyed by the recent flooding, we can provide some comfort to those in need with the generous donation of a homemade quilt.
The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum is asking for help from the quilting community—quilters, quilt guilds, and quilt shops—to provide quilts for flood victims. We are asking for donations of new quilts, made of 100-percent cotton fabric, in twin, full, and queen sizes. Although we would prefer finished quilts, we will accept tops and work with local longarm quilters to finish them.
Please drop off or mail your donation to:
Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum,
1213 Washington Avenue
Golden, CO 80401
(Monday- Saturday 10 to 4; Sunday 11-4) or the museum office, 651 Corporate Circle, Suite 102, Golden (Monday-Thursday 9:30-4). Please call the museum office at 303-215-9001 if you have any questions or concerns.
Quilters always pull it together when the going gets tough. And the going ALWAYS gets tough. I know it seems like we just come out of one crisis before we are in another.
Can you make a quilt? Can you send a quilt?
I know you can!
I also ask you to PLEASE link this post on your news groups, your flickr groups your email lists and facebook walls. Wherever quilters gather -- please help us get the word out.
