Waldo Canyon Fire Survivors - A Direct Way to Help

I know some of you have been following my posts about Colorado Springs' Waldo Canyon fire...and wondering if there was a way for you to help. Well, there is!

I just got an e-mail from Debby French of the Piecing Partner's Quilt Guild in the Springs -- the same guild I taught for, a few weeks back. Here's what Debby says...and if you can help, it would be wonderful. (Yes, Brickworks plans to contribute, too.)

What I'm emailing about is that our guild, Project Linus and possibly the night guild are starting a quilt drive for the victims of the Waldo Canyon Fire (actually one of my favorite places to hike).  We are working out the logistics for this but have two drop off points here in Colorado Springs.  Would you be willing to help us get the word out to fellow quilters?  We're asking for new, unused quilts and quilt tops in sizes from lap to twin.  They can be dropped off at either High Country Quilts, 4771 N. Academy, Colorado Springs, Co, 80918 and Ladybug Hill Quilts, 955 E. Fillmore, Colorado Springs, CO, 80907.  


If questions, e-mail Debby directly at tfrench55@msn.com.

Thank you!

Just A Little Longer...

...and summer's over. I can't say I'll really miss this one. It's been full of packing and sorting, and dragging ourselves...
