The Hurricane Sandy quilts are
rolling into the Timeless Treasures warehouse in Roselle, New Jersey.
They are also being dropped off in person at our eQuilter warehouse in
In the last week I've meet a couple of the generous quilters who stopped
by to share their quilts, and was lucky enough to be able to thank them
To all the rest of you working hard to make quilts and ship quilts for our Hurricane Sandy relief effort - please accept this as my personal cyber thank you hug!
We now have some photos of quilts at the Timeless warehouse, quilts being distributed on Thanksgiving, and quilts arriving at eQuilter. In addition we have photos sent by Denise, who is helping us with one of our distribution points in New Jersey. Her photos depict the destruction after the storm, but she said these are not photos of the worst hit areas. She said those areas were off-limits and behind National Guard lines.
If you would like to contribute to this photo page - please send your photos to us at eQuilter and we will share them with everyone. As we get more photos of the quilts and recipients, we will get them online on this page as fast as possible!
This effort will continue through December and January, at which time we will assess if and how long we will continue the project. Please try to send your quilts to arrive at the Timeless warehouse by end January.
Sunday was my birthday, and every year as the Earth makes another trip around the Sun, I start working on my goals for the coming year. For the next year, I have set a goal of going on a creative retreat, and going on a mission trip with one of our charity groups.
Well guess what? One of them is coming true sooner than I imagined. Saturday I am going to a developing country on a cleft palate/lip surgery trip. Watch my next 2 newsletters for this story. You will be amazed. eQuilter is a sponsor of this surgery trip so I want to take you along to experience the good that our 2% of sales is doing around the world.
Are you starting to think about your creative goals for 2013?
