First I prayed, my second impulse was to send quilts to the devastated in Oklahoma. How would I do that? Where would I send them? Thankfully the quilting community has answered some of those questions. I’m passing it along from Bonnie Hunter’s blog through stitchinggrandma to my readers and followers who are asking the same questions. I personally called Ellen to verify some of the information and there is a possibility of more logistical information to be released tomorrow, stay tuned. Thanks be to God for the ability to give our love and concern to others through our creative impulse. God’s strength and love be with those affected by the recent events.
Dear Quilt Friends:
I have been contacted and asked to spread this info to you. It’s important to get the word out to all the quilters you are in contact with, so could you please share this blog post with your email lists, message boards, flickr groups, twitter, wherever quilters gather to help get the word out?
This is from Ellen Medlock of the Ellen Medlock Studio Store in Tulsa, OK.
