Quilter's Helping Tornado Victims

A message from The Quilt Show to all my quilting friends out there:

Joplin, MO Guild Loses Everything

The Town and Country Quilters Guild of Joplin, MO, is an active and vital source of charity quilts for the needy in the town of Joplin. Along with the loss of individual member's homes, the guild's "storage house" also was hit by last week's devastating tornado.

Gone are all of the supplies used in the making of charity quilts (rotary cutters, cutting mats, batting, fabric, etc.). If you or your quilt guild would like to donate items, please send them to the address shown below. If you'd rather, you can send a check for larger, more difficult-to-ship items, making the check payable to either Bed, Bath, and Beyond or Block by Block Quilt Shop.

Somehow I think the kindness of other's will help this devastated community. Thanks for the links.

I am always touched by the way people are so willing to help!
In Holland we mainly donate money, to support victims. Television shows and the radio support this with famous Dutch people, who are all willing to put their time in it.

I'm passing this link on to a friend who is a quilter, so she can share it with her quilting friends.
Places like Quilt Guilds are seldom thought of by the general public after a disaster like this.
