The wonderful thing about being a quilter is that we can make art out of fabric that is not only beautiful, but also useful and provides warmth and comfort. At Clothworks we make a ton of quilts (as you might imagine) and we are happy to announce that they will soon be providing comfort to the children at the Bikou-en orphanage in Japan. As you likely know, there are thousands of people displaced in Japan after the Tsunami and 9.0 earthquake over there and we wanted to help….and so can you!
The Ron and Don Show started “Operation Airlift Japan” where you can donate much needed food, clothing, and supplies and they will be airlifted to the Naval Air Facility Misawa where they will be taken to the orphanage. You can read all about it here as well as a list of supplies that are needed.
If you are in the Seattle area, considered looking through your stash of quilts and donating some or any of the supplies on the list. The deadline to drop off is today, so click here to find a location to drop off at. Here’s a photos of us with our quilts:
If you are not in the Seattle area, we would love for you to leave a comment if people are organizing similar efforts where you live. Thanks for looking, thanks for sharing, and as always Happy Quilting!
