Quilters Helping Tornado Victims

This, from Fons and Porter:

Quilters Lose Everything in Tornado

The Town and Country Quilters of Joplin, MO lost everything, including their homes, in a recent and devastating tornado. This quilting group is known for donating many of their quilts to local charities, and could use your help to get started again. They need all tools and supplies restocked because their storage house was also destroyed. 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 guild member:

Gloria Park
2921 N. Hickory
Joplin, Missouri 64801

PASS THE WORD!
Thanks!

We have seen footage of the devastation on the news - it's amazing how many people lost everything - just can't imagine!
Hope that it doesn't take long for them to rebuild.
