Sew Caring – Update

So many of you have been making blocks to include with our fundraiser Sew Caring for the victim relief of Hurricane Harvey. 

Thank you so, so much! Words cannot describe the feeling of how wonderful it is to see everyone come together to help.

Colin, what a fantastic job you did on your block! We are so proud of you!

We have been so thankful for all the mail with beautiful blocks and quilts that have come in. We can’t wait to finish them up and deliver them with the money raised from the sales of our
Made in USA pattern.

If you would like to participate, you can do so by purchasing the “Made in USA” pattern by October 15th or by making a block from the quilt and sending it to us by October 1st.

 Another way how you could help: Our friends at Fat Quarter Shop have designed this lovely PDF quilt pattern called “The Healing Hearts” quilt and its rendered in Blue Sky collection. 100% of the proceeds will go to victim relief of Hurricane Harvey through JJ Watt’s Houston based foundation.

I am so proud of Andover.
This is the company that I work with. Their generosity will  have a positive impact on so many people.

It’s amazing to see the quilting community come together to help.
Sew Caring!

    Hi Edyta! I took your class at Quilting in the Garden a few weeks ago, and was so happy that you had given us the patterns to make blocks for the Hurricane victims. So I got busy and sewed and sewed, and got 12 blocks done, by then I had missed the block entry date, so I decided to finish the quilt top and send that down to you for quilting by the date you wanted them so you could get them quilted and finished. Well then the Santa Rosa firestorms started, and since I am only 15 miles north of Santa Rosa, and 5 miles south of the Pocket fire that was in Geyserville, things got very scary. Well, we are safe, and our home is safe, but driving through Santa Rosa, just on the freeway, I can see so much devastation. I hope you don’t mind, but I’m going to finish my quilt and donate it to a family here in our community that has lost their home. I will credit you with the idea and the pattern, and there was one other lady who helped me with a block. I’m hoping you will be happy that your generosity is extending out even farther than you envisioned. So many tragedies this year!!! Have a wonderful & prosperous time at Market!!! Hugs, H

    Thanks Edyta and Andover for reaching out to the hurricane victims. Looking forward to your new book. Blue and white quilts are my favorite.

    This is wonderful of Andover and all of the others helping the victims of the hurricanes. Living in the midwest I have never been in that situation, but seeing the pictures, hearing the stories just breaks my heart. I will do what I can to help – even if it’s just ordering a pattern. I urge others to do the same. Thank you Edyta!

    The Quilt Guild of Greater Houston is collecting and distributing directly to the recipients, quilts of all sizes and themes. Our Neighbor to Neighbor Quilts program recognizes the importance of sharing the quilts with all of our affected neighbors and would suggest that a small label be attached identifying which state or group is giving the quilts. Local quilt stores are receiving them for us and then our members are distributing the quilts through various shelters, and homes for displaced residents. More information can be found on our web site: qgghouston.org. This disaster was so over-whelming that our Houston, and surrounding town friends, neighbors will be recovering for many months. Many thanks for your help, for which ever organization you choose to support. There’s enough work for everyone to participate!
